Preppers Bug Out Bag – Elite Large Fully Stocked GI Issue Medic First Aid Kit – What I Liked

This first aid kit is very complete and well thought out, it’s got a ton of stuff, a lot of which goes beyond your basic first aid training. Many commercially available first aid kits are just an assortment of generic items that you could source yourself at your local Walgreens or Target store but this bag is a cut above those consumer level first aid kits. This kit is highly rated and I had an EMT friend take a look at it to see what she thought about it and her comment was “Wow this is a very thorough kit and I would consider carrying this in my personal vehicle if I didn’t already have my own kit”. The items in here are good quality and there’s a huge variety of stuff. Here’s a list of what is included in this first aid kit:

One other thing that comes up when you’re looking at a kit like this is “Could I build this myself cheaper?”. For a lot of commercially available first aid kits that is probably true – you may be better off just picking up stuff and building your own kit but this kit is a great value and you’d be hard pressed to build your own kit and come in much cheaper than this one.

Preppers Bug Out Bag – Elite Large Fully Stocked GI Issue Medic First Aid Kit – What I Didn’t Like

I’m not a trained EMT so I’ll admit that some of the items in here are a mystery to me and that’s something worth mentioning. When you pick up one of these kits you need to go through it and make sure that you are familiar with everything in there and know how to use it. This may mean some additional training on your part or you may need to consult a professional in order to understand how to use all of the gear in this first aid kit. My EMT friend did mention that she would get rid of the latex gloves and replace them with Nitrile in case someone in your group has a latex allergy. She also mentioned that for her personally she would add a few items like “clot stop” and a better pair of scissors. If you’re an EMT/Nurse or other medical professional with better training than the average prepper who’s been through some first aid courses you’ll want to carefully go through the bag and make sure you’re satisfied with all of the items and the mix of equipment.
