Self-aid and buddy care is sure to be an important skill should the SHTF. Having the ability to patch yourself and others up after contact with hostile forces is crucial to survival. Knowing how to do these things is key, but knowledge does little without the proper equipment. The Individual First Aid Kit is small enough to fit on a web belt or on the outside of your MOLLE pack, but large enough to fit the essential instruments needed in first aid care. Green pouch has MOLLE style strapping, measures 8x6x4 inches, weighs only 1.6 pounds and contains all the essentials for wound management. Kit contains 11 first aid items including field dressing, sterile bandages, a QuickClot package, shears, tourniquet, gloves, and more, all listed with their individual NSNs. Designers equipped these kits for blunt force and penetrating trauma commonly associated with traumatic gunshot and stab wounds. These kits are a culmination of years of research, to include collaboration with SWAT trained paramedics, the U.S. Military, and emergency room physicians. Take the IFAK first aid kit to the range, camping, hunting, or keep one in your vehicle. There is no substitute for carrying around piece of mind.
