    When I read and see articles like this one I see just how unprepared I am. Thank you fellas for posting up this information for guys like me to learn. Where is a good place to get some training? I would like for my friend and I to learn some of the basics.

    What are your thought on celox? If you like them about how many 2g packets of the celox do you all think would be appropriate?

    This is the best deal I've seen:
    Celox Home 2g - 10 packets - Stops bleeding fast! | eBay

    I'm probably going to order the bandages with that stuff in it, rather than the powder. I've read that, if it blows in your eyes, it'll permenantly blind you.

    I'm sure one of the emts here will know more about it than I, though.

    You might think about field stripping those MRE's. That would give you the ability to carry more of them for a longer scenario. As many have said, carrying a good trauma kit is a must. I carry the ETA kit that we sell here at ITS Tactical. There are a lot of kits out there but I prefer ours because it fits into a small space and has everything you'll need to deal with severe trauma.

    Other than that, everything looks good. I carry 3 to 4 pairs of socks in my bag and I also keep 50' of paracord in case I need to make a shelter out of the poncho or what not.

    After seeing the video I will be field stripping those MRE's as soon as I get a chance. I never really field stripped & repackaged an MRE like that but that video was well worth watching and I will start doing that.

    It helps out so much with space! I have the ability to put 6 or 7 MRE's where I would have had 3. I always think about bugging out and how long I might be living out the pack and I want to give myself the longest time possible.

    I also keep a couple small paperbacks and a deck of cards in my bag as time killers and sanity keepers.

    The part that got me about the video was how much dumping the cardboard boxed really saved space. That was incredible. I'd definately keep the accessory pouch for the TP & matches at least, but the shakes could always get tossed out as far as I care.

    I would just stick with H bandages and Izzy's for your bag.

    Did you recognize the papoose? That's the one that was sitting on the shelf at your shop until I gave it a good home.
