    It is a 5.11 6.6 pouch, attached to the strap of my 5.11 tablet case.

    [​IMG]

    The contents are:
    1. Plastic bags with seal (2x) [for waste disposal]
    2. 96cm x 135cm Triangular Bandage (1x) [second use as a tourniquet]
    3. 10cm x 10cm Melolin pads (3x) [courtesy for victim]
    4. 90cm x 5m Gauze Roll (1x)
    5. 15cm x 4.5 m Heavy Weight Crepe Bandage (1x)
    6. Medical Shears (1x)
    7. Latex Gloves (10x) [but only 4 left]
    8. CPR mask in hard case (1x)
    9. Emergency Blanket (1x)
    10. Hand Sanitizer (1x)
    11. Alcohol Swab (10x) [For equipment]

    This is a kit I bring everywhere no matter what bag I am carrying, edc, work, hike, or school (except the shears that has to go in flights), as long as I am more than 100m from my main trauma kit.

    This is a little something I did a while back, you know those wallet pic holders, I cut one off and loaded it with a few things. The two pics on the left is what it looks like, front and back, the one on the right is what it's loaded with, three normal bandaids, three smaller ones, and just two alcohol wipes, the absolute minimum, but it takes up no room and fits in the wallet!

    Tourniquet use, ambulance number, destination, etc. for report writing. I also write down anything else pertinent for the responding paramedics to know, and yes, I write it all on the patient.

    This is my EDC first aid kit and if I'm not out playing with knives the one I bring when out walking. The pouch I made myself and is based on the Kifaru UL pullouts. The tri-glide in the top loop is so that I can thread it through a square D ring in my bergen and stop me having to search through my bag.

    [​IMG]IMG_3248 by Paul Daly, on Flickr

    The contents from top right are;
    Clinell wipes
    'Butterfly stitches'
    varied plasters incl blister plasters
    stretch bandage
    4'' Israeli bandage
    Wound dressings
    Burn gel
    Diaoralyte powder to make a rehydrating drink after diarrhoea
    varied painkillers
    Anti diarrhoea tablets
    Midgie bite stick
    Alcohol wipes
    Small sewing kit

    My current IFAK is split into: Kifaru 1000D Organizer Pocket In Wolf Grey (Trama) and a custom ZPack Zip Pouch in Orange (Boo Boo). The Boo Boo slips into the Kifaru. The Kifaru get attached to the lumbar, shoulder or chest. I run or walk or hike. The patch is a custom one off from Etsy. On my table:

    http://imgur.com/a/Ktzip

    I HATE it. It's bulky, cumbersome and heavy. It bounces, slips and slides. (It's great for a standing solution though...) My current insanity is trying to measure the smallest footprint I can stuff and smoosh my items into.

    http://imgur.com/a/PCIqt

    The Olaes is the current best of the trama bandages but even the flat pack is a pig of a beast. I've managed to flatpack the TQ quite nicely but I continue my insestuous flirtation with the RATS.

    I keep looking at the ITS Tallboy, but I've never liked this style of IFAK holder:

    https://store.itstactical.com/medical/its-eta-trauma-kit-pouch-tallboy.html

    or the Coyote STOMP, and that has all kinds of extranous stuff built onto the exterior that I don't like:

    http://www.coyotetacticalsolutions.com/slim-tear-off-medical-pouch-s-t-o-m-p/

    I may be insane: I refuse to compromise on the quality of the items I carry, and demand multipurpose use from them, but want them in the smallest flatest footprint they can be in...

    My EDC First Aid / Survival Kit
    (Packed super tight)
    Survival:
    Mini signal mirror
    Rescue whistle
    Compass
    Sparker fire starter
    10 - weather proof matches and striker
    6 - fire tinders
    2 - water purification tablets

    First Aid:
    2 - 2x2 gauze pads
    4 - Large band-aids
    2 - Small dot band-aids
    2 - Butterfly closures
    Compact tampon
    Woundseal topical powder
    Burn gel
    Hydrocortisone cream
    2 - cleaning wipes

    I'm waiting on 3M Steri-strips to come in, arriving today.

    I think I'm happy with it. It's basic, but should cover any day to day incidents.

    Not 100% sure I need the survival stuff in my bag, could just be in my car.

    Thoughts?

    ETA: Well it was packed to tight. I went to add the Steri-Strips last night and found the case had cracked. So now I'm searching for a pouch.

    First, my car fak: [​IMG]IMG_6163 by Jake Hinds, on Flickr

    Ontario SPAX SP-16 hatchet
    Ace bandage
    Assorted bandaids
    Batteries for my flashlights(Not first aid, just stored in it)
    Note cards
    Sharpie
    Super glue
    25 ft. Utility rope
    Nitrile gloves
    4x4" gauze pads
    bandana
    Bunch of alcohol prep pads

    This is it for now, but I'm going to be redoing it in a bigger bag to hold more supplies. Also, my medical skills are slim to none, but that doesn't mean I can't do anything

    Hopefully my posts will kickstart this somewhat old thread :/ Anyways, next up is my IFAK. I wouldn't say that it's with me every minute of the day, but it goes wherever the backpack it's attached to goes. My backpack goes a lot of places. [​IMG]IMG_6156 by Jake Hinds, on Flickr

    [​IMG]IMG_6157 by Jake Hinds, on Flickr

    The goodies:
    Handwarmers
    Sharpie
    Bug bite relief
    4x4" gauze pads
    Assorted bandaids
    Gauze wrap
    Med shears
    Nitrile gloves
    Advil
    Allergy relief
    Alcohol pads
    Tape
    Eye drops
    Chapstick
    ACE bandage

    Almost everything is double bagged and stuffed in.
    Lastly, all my toys can get stuffed into my Fieldline backpack, outfitted with the ifak, a battery-powered glow stick, my edc kit, Gerber Strong-arm, and my car fak. [​IMG]IMG_6218 by Jake Hinds, on Flickr
