Well, I decided to put pics of my first aid gear up. First up is my IFAK-type kit that stays on my backpack for when I do prisoner transports:

Image

Image

Inside, from bottom to top:

Two pair nitrile gloves, size XL

CAT TQ

(In the slot behind those) Quik-Clot Combat Gauze

And in the top pouch:

NAR Emergency Trauma Dressing

GI issue chest seal

NAR ARS chest dart

Permanent marker for TQ/whatever else needs marked.

On to my CLS bag. It is an army-issue TC3 bag from Recon Mountaineer, though this is my personal set bag and setup.

The bag itself. Nothing special; blurry cell phone pic:

Image

First velcro/snap flap:

Image

Contains four pairs of gloves and shears.

Next up, the front zipper pouch:

Image

Benchmade rescue hook and two red chem lights.

Main pouch open:

Image

You can see the airway packet (nowhere else to put it in this bag), and some of the markings on the pouches in the bag.

Airway packet:

Image

I didn't want to take it apart for the pictures, but it contains an NPA, OPA, and King LT-D, along with some lube. Wrapped in Durapore.

Main pouch open, minus the airway packet:

Image

In the middle, you can see the three CATs, one ARS (planning on adding at least one more), Durapore tape (2"), and ACE bandage. Somewhere in there (I think the airway pack pushed it out of the loop and to the bottom of the bag) is a roll of coflex, as well.

Inside of the "Bleeding" pouch:

Image

Two 6" Izzies, one Izzy abdominal, and a packet of QC Combat Gauze (another packet on the way).

Bones/Burns/Chest Seal:

Image

Image

SAM splint, two cravats, two burn dressings, and a HALO chest seal.




That's it so far. I have a TSSI M9 bag on the way, and will be moving this stuff to that bag, and adding some stuff to it. So go ahead, rip it apart and tell me how I screwed it up!

Relax dude.....it's a nice bag. If it works for you, that's fantastic. I actually love those bags. I carried a bag like that for 15 years on the street here and in about 4 other countries. Screw anyone who has anything but constructive info for you. People here won't "tell you how bad you screwed it up". We aren't a bunch of assholes (at least they aren't).......Thanks for posting it.

I meant that actually as something of a humorous comment, not expecting to get ripped apart like on lightfighter or something, lol.

Not a medic, just an ARNG CLS. Just so that's clear and all :-P

I would add a space blanket and a cpr-shield. Perhaps also a hand sanitizer.
