Duct Tape...Check.

Super Glue...Check.

Bottle of Jack...Double Check!

That's all you need to fix anything!! And no joke, that's all I carry. Lite and simple fix-me-up kit.

Superglue does a great job holding a tooth in too. Don't ask, but take my word for it.

I have this notion that super glue was developed for in-field wound closure.

I came across this pouch while surfing the net. Evidently you can buy it as a stand alone bag only or a complete kit.

Here's another "List" for an every day carry kit. Just more to jog the memory.

I have several, the main one I keep in the car. I like pre-made kits that I modify and add stuff too, and I like bigger cases which you can buy anywhere and are pretty inexpensive, then fill em up!

one cool thing I like in my kits is a SAK (swiss army knife) and a new bic lighter and water-proof paper and writing stuff.

my gawd you can spend a lot filling them kits up! doh

Hi Dan! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbup.gif" alt="" /> So true about filling up the kits; sometimes it's hard to remember that it's only a First Aid kit and not a Doctor's bag! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif" alt="" />

The more that I've learned about natural remedies from local plants, the less junk I've needed in my hiking / camping first aid kit. I've got my hiking kit cut down to the bare minimum (gauze, tape, dermabond & a few things that are just plain hard to brew up in the wild like allergy meds & antibiotics) while my vehicle kit still looks like a small hospital, as does my home kit.

Not really a first aid item, but...

Repair kit for glasses wearers.
Tonight I lost a screw that holds the frame together, thereby letting the lens fall out! Tape WILL work, but makes you look like a Geek that should be wearing a pocket protector. Yeah yeah, I've been there.

By having this small kit in your FAK or IFAK, you will always have it readily available if you should need it. I'm going to add one to my kit.

Good one Randy! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbup.gif" alt="" /> I added one to my car kit not long after I started using reading glasses. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

Coming back up. In light of the present and worsening situation we all perhaps need to rethink our First Aid "Kits" I know that I need help building a whole new GOOD kit, perhaps 2.
