Gotta have a proper first aid kit tailored toward the activity you're doing, might save your day or might save your life or someone else's. If you've ever had, or seen, a cut from auger blades you know how nasty that can be. Absolute must haves:

- Rubber gloves
- Gauze
- Medical tape - fabric, never the cheap paper kind
- QuickClot powder and/ or bandages.
- Butterfly closures
- Pain/ headache reliever
- Mylar emergency blanket
- Ace bandage with extra clips
- BZK disinfectant wipes
- Antibiotic first aid cream, bonus points if it's got a pain killer in it
- Typical bandaids and the like

All that takes up less space than a sunglass case.

kpd145:
band aids, tape, gloves, tylenol, advil, crazy glue.

I am on two different blood thinners. After recently having an arterial bleed, without immediate intervention I would not be here.

I had a tourniquet in my truck but now had added a tourniquet to my smaller first aid kit. Also added hemostatic gauze and pressure dressing to both.

Good idea to have a tourniquet in every kit, Bart. A bandanna and a pencil will work well, also remember your belt....or boot laces and a stick.
