Trauma Kit Must Haves

January 28, 2021

It is a question we get a bunch. What should I have in my trauma kit? How to use all this gear is covered in our Trauma Management I class.

The first thing we would tell you regarding a medkit is to keep them to a minimum. Your individual first aid kit (IFAK) should stay the same for mall runs, range work, or hunting expeditions. If you want to keep more than one, that’s up to you. Most of us keep one in our everyday carry bag, one on our shooting rigs, and one in our vehicle.

As far as IFAK contents, keep it simple. It’s easiest and most cost-effective to buy the items separately so you don’t end up with unnecessary things, but you can find many pre-stocked kits. If purchasing items separately, you can also get the type or brand that you prefer. 

Regardless of the activity, IFAKs are comprised of the same essential items. So you can have one for each location (car, home, office, hunting cabin) or keep one in your everyday bag.


The two IFAK pouches that are our personal preferences right now are:
