Re: What's in your first aid kit?

I used to have 1 big fancy bag with all kinds of stuff in it.

Recently I split the big bag into 2 smaller ones.
1 bag geared towards every day cuts, bumps, blisters, bites and lumps.
2nd bag is geared more for trauma.

Every day bag is orange and the trauma bag is red.

I have a bag with 5 internal removable pouches divided into Trauma, Dressings/Fastenings, First Aid, Travel Meds and Canine Specific. Mounted to the passenger headrest behind the driver on a quick release grab. Also carry a StiffNeck and a Sam Splint.
