If you are planning for long term off grid living this might not be a good idea but if you have access to solar or some other rechargeable batteries go with a Thermoscan. That's what we carry in our CLS bags here at work. Heat mitigation is a way of life here at Benning, so we are constantly monitoring heat in students during the summer.

Good point about planning for your environment.

There is a Thermoscan Compact, but it uses some sort of small lithium batteries. The standard Thermoscan uses AAs.

I can see how they would come in handy at Benning. All I can say is that Ft. Benning in the summer is a special kind of hot. :wink:

By the way if you're looking for the NSN on the Asherman Chest Seal, it's #6510-01-408-1920.

I would add

A disposable razor or two in case you do have do some field surgery although if its an open wound, then its probably too late for shaving.
Also, a roll of duct tape could do you some good if you ever had to make up some splints or tape a bandage good and tight for a hike. I saw that you had some stuff that would do as well as duct tape, but you could probably use that stuff for smaller wounds.

Other than that, your entire bag outclasses me. I say good job.

Gunny, you should really strap a backboard on that kit also... I'm just saying... Maybe an AED also... If you want to be thorough.

Hey man. Reread the post you made about helping the two women who crashed in front of you on the highway.

When you taped one victim's head to the headrest, what did you use? Duct tape, or that paper wrapping stuff they sell next to packets of gauze, or what?
See you around, HK. And remember folks: victory is surviving to watch another sunrise.

Valarius I used a roll of wide medical tape but if I would've had ducttape on hand, I would've used that.

I think Doc Simon has a saying that goes, "If you can't Duct it, fuck it." or something similar :P

One of the most important components of any IFAK is tape, lots of tape and lots of good tape. Not the cheap 'waterproof' J&J shit they sell at Walgreens/CVS either. Honest to gravy tape.
