  • I read your suggestions for field safety pouches, meaning pouches with first aid items. What typically happens afield, or in bo

    I read your suggestions for field safety pouches, meaning pouches with first aid items. What typically happens afield, or in boats, is someone is cut or scraped deeply and starts to bleed. Nowhere in your first aid kits, all 4 presented, was there anything to counteract bleeding. So the monthly question I ask is: Why has no-one recommended something like Kwik-Klot or something similar be recommended, and explained where a sportsman could purchase this item on a competitive price basis. I would think this would be a fundamental element in any first aid kit. Why is it overlooked so frequently? [email protected]

    I do not believe I read the article you are talking about, but I agree that being prepared to control the bleeding is one of the most important parts of a first aid kit.

        It is in the latest issue of OL. I received it on Friday. I would always have a basic first aid kit in any survival kit.

          Hi...


          Well, I suppose there are reasons why people don't include blood coagulents in their first aid gear. They might not know it exists, they might think that major trauma always happens to the other person, or they might think it is too expensive to keep in their kits.

          It's commonly available on many web sites and/or big box outdoor stores, such as Cabela's. Bought a few trauma packs from them that cost little more, if any, then that of the Quik-Clot alone.

          The second time I purchased them, they didn't even know they existed in their inventory...!! Fortunately, I had the inventory number available, and was able to order more.

          I think that common sense would dictate that something of this nature (Celex is another brand) should be in everyone's first aid kits.

          Serious injuries don't always happen to the other guy...!!
