Re: Bug out bag repair and restoration

I had good luck finding buckles on eBay. Search for "ITW buckle."

DIY Tactical is a good source for webbing and hardware as well.

Re: Low Budget Vacuum Packing equipment for first aid supplies?

One thing to remember about vacuum sealing is that it's going to take up much more room in your BOB or rucksack or whatever when repacking the gear after you open the sealed bag. This makes vacuum sealing very useful for consumables but less so for durables. Nothing worse than using gear and then ha...

Re: Low Budget Vacuum Packing equipment for first aid supplies?

I use a regular Food Saver vacuum sealer. That would be an expensive way to go if you only needed to seal medical supplies, but once you have a vacuum sealer you'll end up sealing everything else in your life like some kind of neurotic evil genius :twisted:

Re: Small clip/keychain flashlight recommendation

+1 for the Streamlight Nano. Compact, durable, long battery life and adequate light. Great price too. I'm sorry, but as usual on these type of threads I must once again rant that attaching your keys to a flashilght is like attaching your keys to a gun, or compass, or multitool, or knife. I'm totally...

Re: Gurthy's GSW FAK

1. What's the Coban for ? I think you'd be better served with actual tape. 2. You can get just as much gauze in a more compact package with a priMed gauze square. I like to use Coban on extremity wounds because it provides slight compression and is cohesive so works well when wet, etc... I'm thinki...

Gurthy's IFAK - Updated!

Updated IFAK post here ..... This is my Gun Shot Wound / Blow Out FAK. It usually resides in a HSGI Bleeder Pouch (with some OD green trauma shears) but I'll occasionally pull it out and drop it in a range bag if the LBE stays home. I have it sealed in a durable waterproof vacuum bag because that's...

Hello from Michigan

I've been lurking for a while and decided to finally introduce myself. I have a military and EMS background and I hope to be able to contribute something to future discussions in return for all of the info I've pulled from the forums so far.
