Almost Jesus's STOMP II

Post by AlmostJesus » Tue Mar 10, 2009 3:56 pm

I had a Blackhawk Spec Ops Medical Pack before, and I quickly grew out of it. I started in the market and I found a STOMP II on ebay, used in Iraq with some supplies. What I got was quite a surprise.
Image
I got a ton of supplies with it, which is always a plus. I also found out that I got somewhat of a story with this bag. I found this behind a picture of his son in the ID slot.
Image
I asked him about it and he told me the picture was his son and added "that bag was used during Operation Iraqi Freedom IV and has many memories of missions, friends and enemies... it was dropped from helicopters, it was a pillow, it was a rifle stand, it saved lives, and it lost some... i dont know if ur using it for personal use or as a display, but treat it well... it made it's way home, just like me..."
I decided that the picture and the note would mean more to him than it would to me, so I offered to send it back to him and he accepted.
It is nice knowing the history behind this pack, it makes it that much better.
A side note, for being through a tour in Iraq, it withstood great, everything was in good condition. still VERY useable
So without further ado, My STOMP.
Image
Image
The pack weighs 19.5 lbs. I tried to keep it mainly BLS

Image

Excellent BLS aid-bag! I would remove the combitube for reasons you've already mentioned and because chinlift/jawthrust+OPA+BVM is the best BLS ventilation.

SOFT-tourniquets may be somewhat larger, but more secure than CAT's. I would keep 2 SOFT-T in your aid-bag.

Replace expired ACS with BCS (prices are nearly the same these days.)

How about some duct-tape, space blankets and burn-treatment?


Try if the AMBU-mask fits on the SPUR bvm. If that works, toss the mask that comes with the bvm.

Werd. We got a wooden spoon, a wooden fork, and a coat hanger for dumpster alley abortions :twisted:

Cant tell if its just the picture but those latex gloves kinda look like they are getting that old dark brittle rubber look.

They were surgical gloves i trashed them
I also had to trash some of the other stuff that came with it for various reasons, a lot of it isnt shown that I id
I knew someone would mention those, I was just too lazy to pick them up out of the picture.

I could move the cats to my small trauma kits, Ill put that into consideration
I need to get on replacing that, I will keep the BCS in mind
I need to add ducttape, I got a spaceblanket in there and I got the little sachets of burn gel, I will get a couple burn dressings in the next purchase I make.

Oh, and if you would like to purchase my old bag anyone, its up on ebay here http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0301831517" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

It is from my first first aid kit which I got as Czech Surplus, Cheaper Than Dirt was offering them for awhile.

I am not really sure on the cost, I did some interesting procuring which cut some of the costs, I bet I got 300-350 in it, but that is just an estimate

wow, thats a great history from that bag. I too bought one off of ebay some time ago that came from overseas, unfortunately i didnt get the history behind it, however it looked quite used. I can only imagine what it saw
