Do you carry a first-aid kit with your EDC? Why not?
Gun? Check. Spare magazine? Check. EDC knife? Chickety-check! But if your EDC checklist doesn’t include a first-aid kit, you’re not as prepared as you think you are. That’s where the Mountain Ankle IFAK (Individual First Aid) from Mountain Man Medical comes in. It’s a neat, complete, discreet way to wear a first-aid kit suitable for all kinds of medical emergencies, designed by experts in the field of emergency medicine. Here’s what comes in the kit:
Ankle Cuff from Wilderness Tactical
Made of XHD elastic webbing, the Ankle Cargo Cuff has 5 main storage cells and a 6th compact slip-pocket. Designed with a wide range of adjustment, one size will comfortably fit nearly everyone. An additional field of loop material is stitched to the interior surface to create comfortable friction to keep the cuff in position.
Choice of Tourniquet
The SWAT-T is a versatile proven tourniquet. Just wrap and stretch using the instructions printed on the tourniquet itself to ensure proper application. Unlike many popular tourniquets it can be applied on animals or any appendage. It can also double as a compression bandage in a pinch.
The SOF® Tourniquet Gen 4 is approved for use by the Department of Defense, approved for use by the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care, and the tourniquet of choice for the American Red Cross.
Choice of Hemostatic Dressing
HemCon® ChitoGauze® XR PRO is a revolutionary hemostatic dressing for the external, temporary control of severely bleeding wounds. This dressing features a polyester/rayon blend non-woven medical gauze that is coated with chitosan. It is Z-folded and packaged in a vacuum-sealed pouch that is compact, rugged and features Red-Tip Technology®.
QuikClot® Bleeding and Control Dressing Gauze is white, nonwoven, hydrophilic gauze impregnated with kaolin, an inorganic mineral that is both safe and effective in accelerating the body’s natural clotting cascade without any exothermic reactions or use of animal or human proteins. It is Z-folded and packaged in a vacuum-sealed pouch.
Hyfin Compact Twin Chest Seal
The HyFin Vent Twin Pack which gives responders two vented chest seals in a compact packaging for the treatment of penetrating injuries to the chest. Designed with 3-vented channels that allow air to escape the chest cavity during exhalation but prevents air from entering through the injury site during inhalation. Each HyFin Vent Compact Chest Seal is 4.75” x 4.75” and made with advanced adhesive to provide a superior adhesion in the most adverse conditions, including sweaty or hairy casualties.
Contained in a rugged, easy-to-open foil pouch, the perforated packaging allows users to open only one dressing at a time as needed. Its small packaging is ideal for low profile kits as you do not have to fold it to get it to fit in your kit, go-bag, cargo pocket or body armor.
H&H Medical Mini Compression Bandage
Perfect for use in all situations, especially on children and elderly with thin limbs, the Mini Compression Bandage provides a fast, effective tool for many kinds of traumas and injuries (particularly those involving arterial bleeding in extremities). The H&H Mini Compression Bandage comes in a sterile, vacuum-sealed 5 mil barrier bag, flat folded to create a small tight package that’s less than an inch thick!
1 Pair of Large Nitrile Gloves
