I’d be interested mateWould there be any interest in doing a Group Buy of Medical Kit for an approved ( via consensus ) kit? I don't mind underwriting it in the first place and sorting the various kit out here at my location and posting it on ??
It would obviously require us ALL to agree on what needs to be included.
Just a suggestion. Like most of my suggestions they get discussed for a while then stuck on the shelf.
Ooh Let me know mate, Ive been looking at that, I’m at £98 for the diy kit I listed atm, but I’ve not shopped around yet, obviously celox gets the price up.
Thank you all for the great advice and understanding believe me it’s all much appreciated.
the house is now covered once everything arrives, and the mrs will be familiar with everything inside the kit and trained as soon as possible,
I’m thinking for an Edc kit that will live on the shoulder of my backpack not to complicated or intricate and this won’t be my outdoor/bushcraft ifak it’s literally just to strap onto my Edc osprey hikelight 26. As a quick grab, oh **** kit.

I’m still looking at pouches but I’m thinking the 5.11 3.6 med kit. Also Im very open to suggestions, ideas and criticisms.
That’s a nice one mate, I’m still looking for a decent pouch before I pull the TriggerGood kit that mate. I carry my edc bleeder kit in a Patagonia Mini Lite hip pack. Its on my waist every day. Super light, tucks out the way no problem and I don't need to take it off when I drive either. Its always there.

I think the 5.11 pouch looks nice and neat and compact. Everything is eventually about personal preference.That’s a nice pouch mate, I’m still looking for a good pouch, I do like the 5.11 tho, do you think there’s anyThing else I’d need?
A bleeder kit is for the M of the MARCH principle....There's things you can do if you have a break with only your bleeder kit I'm sure but what do you carry in your second layer car kit that's extra for say breaks? Is it really just a bleeder kit with more dressings and a few extras?
I have a pack kit, lifesystems trek FAK with extras added. Then the car is just twice as big but basically similar items. I'm thinking if I'm in the van or car then I'm as likely to simply drive or be driven to get expert help rather than do much more than what my pack kit allows. My view is that I'm unlikely to manipulate a break or dislocation only stabilise it at most. If I'm in the hills I'm calling MRT for anything the casualty can't walk of with, sometimes even if they can walk off I'll still call them. Life threatening issues are hopefully dealt with by the personal FAK, breaks aren't that.
