I have now uploaded pics of all my stuff. Many thanks to Moab for some instruction on this. Hopefully you all can give me some comments of what you think.
My EDC FAK and Janus FAK have the same contents, it just depends on which EDC bag I have that day. My Travel FAK is a bit bigger and meant for family trips/vacations when I may need more supplies (over a longer period of time). My Trauma bag/Large FAK is my newest endeavor. This bag would go out in a bug out situation, or be used if need be in a bug in scenario. As with most of you, I will be opting for bugging in since I have kids, and will only bug out in a necessity. Anyhow, from my experiences (firefighter/paramedic for 20+ years and a Combat Lifesaver when I was in Iraq), I feel what I have will handle *most* injuries. I intend on adding some chest seals, some CATs, and I am contemplating a hemostatic agent. When I was in Iraq (2003) Quikclot was brand new, and I wasn't too keen on using it. Not sure how much the formulary has changed, but I have been looking at the Celox, and am leaning towards that. Any suggestions? I would love to get your input of my set up. Here are links to the videos......Hope you enjoy!

Sorry about the sizing and rotation of some of the pics of my Large FAK. I was not able to figure out the right sizing and way to get them rotated so they would fit on the forum. I gave up out of frustration after a while.
The outer pocket is for smaller injuries that would be used more frequently.
The tan mesh "bag" is a piece that I cut out of a 5.11 Tool bag. It holds 10cc saline flushes, tampons, bandaids, tape, splinter tweezers, nail clippers, safety pins, nesporin, and lip balm. The following items are tucked into the various pockets of the outer pouch: Bandage scissors, bite sticks, Glucose paste, alcohol and betadine swabs, toungue depressors, pen, mylar blanket, notepad, thermometer, and long Q tips.
The next outer pocket is my "trauma" pocket. This houses all the big dressings.
Ziplock bag with various NPA's and lube, pocket mask, burn dressings, Z pack gauze dressings, nitrile gloves, shears, old style combat dressings, 4 inch and 6 inch Israeli dressings, (2) Vacuum sealed 10x30 trauma pads. It is amazing how much these pack down when the are vacuum sealed.
This is the meat and potatoes of the FAK. I am sure there are some things I am missing from here, and there is still room for me to fit things in without it being stuffed to the brim......
Box of Nitrile gloves, 2 flat pack Sam splints, and one rolled Sam splint, 2 large and 2 small Coban dressings, Bottles of Hydrogen Peroxide, Betadine, and Caladryl, Topical Burn Gel, cotton pads, 3 bottles of sterile water, bulb syringe, ace bandage, Sam finger splints, tegaderms, sterile gloves, kling, triangular dressings, 4x4 gauze pads, (2) sponge packs (each contain 10 4x4 gauze pads), glucometer, cold compresses, and the yellow pouch contains a ziplock back with various meds.
