Are you looking for something very small for an individual trauma kit, or something more substantial, from which you could make a much larger, more thoroughly equipped "First In" type bag?
Something small. About 8-10" long.
Larger bag for when going to the range and have a bag that i attach it to
I carry this on my belt when by myself, or walking in the woods.
The person I'm walking in the woods with the most, checking blinds, feeders, and cameras, can use what is in here as well as I can. Since I had a big part in his training and we were partners for several years, I'm pretty sure he could handle things.
Short of being cut in half, or a large caliber hole in an organ that sustains life, this will get 'er done.
Stock according to what you know how to use. This one holds enough for one person, the top can hold enough for up to 4, but it is minimalist and knowledge is power. No comfort items are in these.
Find a good Red Cross type class.
The ITS Tactical pouch bags might be one thing to look at for a trauma bag type of item.
I carry FA stuff in old nylon Walkman, Diskman, cassette tape or pocket camera cases. I've had them for years and repurposed them for FAK, emergency supplies etc. Or you can find them at flea markets, garage sales (before the virus thing) very cheap. They have lots of uses.
I think everyone had/has old small cameras, walkmans, disc players etc, etc.
I use this for my truck and my wife has one in here car. Carries a lot of stuff
This is what I use.. https://tacticalgear.com/hazard-4-reveille-toiletry-bag-coyote
This one works great, the fold out design lets you see everything at a glance and not have to dig around looking for something. Customer service is outstanding with this company.
Step 1: show us what/how much first aid you want
Step 2: Find bag to fit it
Not the other way around...
Lots of choices availible now-a-days. Here is what I use;
Specifically this unit I keep in the car and take with me when I walk here and their. Has a sholder strap as well.
About a year ago I had switched to off-body carry due to my back injury and inability to carry on my belt; although I opposed this type of carry my whole life.
Now I carry my G19.5 with 31-rd [!] magazine and TLR-1 HL in Vertx EDC Transit Sling 2.0.
Gentlemen, I want to tell you that this bag is a real game changer. It has a lot for the money!
It does not scream tactical, but looks very nerdish. Everyone thinks that it is my laptop bag.
It is very slick, but there is enough room for said weapon and my daily necessities, such as small light, my medications, epipen, cigarette lighter, etc.
