    Cold anyone recommend a heavier first aid bag? Perhaps something that could still be reasonably carried with me on extended camping trips.

    I have the Blackhawk roll bag, but have found it difficult to fit some bottles and other things in the small sleeves.

    Take a look here, they have a wide variety.

    Some of the bags are filled with supplies for about the same price as empty bags in other places. Shiping can be relatively expensive, so I try to get more than one thing because the price does not go up that much for more things.

    What is your level of training?

    An expensive bag filled with medical supplies is worthless if you don't know how to use them.

    Honestly, most people would be very well equipped with a decent kit from AMK supplemented with anti diarrhea medicine, benadryl, moleskin, prescriptions, and some rolls of gauze as well as a basic trauma kit for more serious injuries (pressure bandage, Quick Clot powder, Kerlix).

    I use a craftsman tool bag. Very heavy material, made to withstand tools banging around all day. It has a wide expandable "mouth" - ruged zipper and a rigid bottom.

    I have two of these, both I purchased at Major Surplus, (the link was shown earlier) I bought them both empty, I think they were about 15 bucks each and worth every penny, GREAT BAG 3 major pockets that unroll A feature I really like and lots of room. If you are on this site you know that most commercial First aid kits are a glorified box of bandaids, but with these bags I was able to make a serious first aid / trauma bag. Don't get me wrong band aids have their place and they are in my kit too, I have used more of those than anything else.

    In answer to the orginal question I HIGHLY endorse these bags, very durable, lots of space and comes with a carry strap and it has straps to attach to pack.

    Oh, I'm not looking for a kit, just a bag since I don't like my Blackhawk roll. I appreciate all the suggestions, lots of good choices!

    How about a reak EMS jump kit/medic bag. We used them at work. Get them from Gall's.
