    First Aid kit, not bad for $25

    I ordered another 1K of 7.62 russian from Sportsmanguide last week and during the checkout they had this 292 piece first aid kit for $25. I usually don't like those last minute offers but I needed to renew my first aid kit, it looked like a decent set so I ordered it.



    The case is some sort of semi-hard nylon case very decent & sturdy looking with a long zipper


    I opened it and surprise! Nice and organized. Items in removable pouches/folders or nested boxes.



    Is it the ultimate all-encompasing kit? Nope, but covers a lot of stuff. Already added a Microshield to it and will be ordering quick clot. But I think it is a pretty decent basic kit. Here is the list of items according to Sportsmanguide:
    Antiseptics / Medications:

    20 sting-free antiseptic cleansing wipes
    20 alcohol cleaning pads
    10 insect sting relief pads

    20 aspirin tablets
    20 ibuprofen tablets
    20 Extra-strength non-aspirin tablets
    Bandages:

    25 Nexcare™ sheer bandages, 3/4 x 3"
    20 Nexcare™ sheer bandages, 1 x 3"
    20 Nexcare™ comfort bandages, 3 /8 x 1 1/2" mini
    2 Nexcare™ comfort bandages, 1 1/2 x 2 1/8" fingertip
    3 Nexcare™ comfort bandages, 1 1/2 x 2 7/8" knuckle
    2 Nexcare™ bandages, 2 x 4" elbow and knee
    Injury treatment / prevention:

    10 Nexcare™ butterfly wound closures
    1 Nexcare™ hypoallergenic first aid tape roll, 1/2" x 10 yds.
    2 moleskin squares, 2 x 2"
    References / instruments / tools:

    Notebook-style sturdy EVA bag
    American Medical Association first aid guide
    1 scissors
    1 tweezers
    10 cotton tipped applicators, 3"
    2 one-time use thermometers
    4 exam quality vinyl gloves
    Hot / cold therapy:

    1 instant cold compress, 4 x 5"
    1 reusable hot / cold compress, 4 x 6"
    Trauma center:

    1 triangular sling / bandage with 2 safety pins
    2 trauma pads, 5 x 9"
    6 gauze dressing pads, 2 x 2"
    6 gauze dressing pads, 3 x 3"
    4 gauze dressing pads, 4 x 4"
    1 conforming gauze roll bandage, 2"
    1 conforming gauze roll bandage, 3"
    1 emergency blanket
    Eye injury center:

    1 twist-off top eye wash, 1/2 oz.

    BONUS flexible pocket organizer
    5 Nexcare™ sheer bandages, 3/4 x 3"
    5 Nexcare™ sheer bandages, 1 x 3"
    5 Nexcare™ comfort mini bandages, 3/8 x 1 1/2"
    2 Nexcare™ comfort bandages, 1 1/2 x 2 7/8" knuckle
    2 Nexcare comfort bandages, 1 1/2 x 2 1/8"
    4 sting-free antiseptic cleansing wipes
    2 antibiotic ointment packs
    2 first aid / burn cream packs

    I just spent about $40 on a comparable first aid kit. You found a good deal, I may have to pick one up myself.

    looks like a nice deal.

    although...I've always prefered to make my own first aid kits. There are too many items in those kits that are pretty much useless for my needs.

    Looks pretty much like the new one I got earlier this year - tho forget where from right now - same deal tho re price, container and contents ...... not bad value at all.

    I usually finish up adding a few odd items extra.

    I may have to take a closer look at that. I like to have emergency items like that on hand, and as clumsy as my wife and I are, we are always digging out bandaids for something or another.

    Need one for the car, truck, kitchen, and garage (where I wind up hurting myself the most).

    Since I'm "In The Business" so to speak, I usually custom build my own 1st aid kits, of which I have several of varying sizes and capacities.

    However, I have and do buy some commercially available ones as well.

    The Kit you laid out here is an Excellent 1st Aid Kit with an Excellent Value!

    It appears to be laid out in a functional and convienent manner packaged in a good case. It looks to be very user friendly and easy to work from without spilling all "the stuff" out on the ground!

    I hope you guys always take a 1st aid kit with you whenever you go shooting. As a paramedic I always bring comprehensive a trauma kit to the range or wherever I shoot and am suprised when some of my friends ask me why I have it! Hey accidents happen, right?

    Besides I usually use it on the inevitable "boo boo's" cuts and scrapes that seem go along with shooting guns in the outdoors. Some people just gotta have a bandaid on that cut. (Bactine and blowing on the boo boo for them is reserved for their momma's )

    Miggy, I would also add some vaseline gauze as an occlusive dressing in case of an accidental gunshot wound that results in a sucking chest wound.

    I may get one of those kits from Sportsman's Guide too! Thanks for the link Miggy!

    Thanks and you are very welcome Bark'n. If you get the kit, let us know what else we should add to it.

    Thanks for sharing your find. It looks good (great for $25) I need one for my other vehicle, and that will do just fine.

    Nice kit, Miggy, I may have to put one of those on my order for a "never flat" wheelbarrow tire. I have been a member of Sportsman's Guide for several years now and always love going through their catalogs.
