A step up from the Platoon first aid kit is the Tactical Trauma kit, also made by Elite First Aid. Like the Platoon kit, the Tactical Trauma kit also has MOLLE-compatible straps for your MOLLE vest, pack, or bag. A former pararescueman designed the Tactical Trauma kit, so it is especially good for those that serve in the line of duty, such as police, military, hunters, and tactical response teams. It includes 55 essential items, such as a wide variety of bandages, adhesive tape, EMT shears, tweezers, antiseptic wipes, and gloves. The Tactical Trauma kit is a step up from your basic kit, as it also has a blood stopper kit, and a burn aid package inside. The army digital camo, dual-zippered pouch is 8 x 6 x 3.5 inches.
