Pocket First Aid Kit
« on: December 22, 2016, 05:17:00 PM »
I am creating a pocket FAK and I am having trouble finding some kind of container for the kit. Ideally, I am looking for a thick Ziploc-type bag that could hold some gauze, bandages, antibiotic wipes and adhesive strips. This is more of a boo-boo kit and not for any major medical trauma and I would want it small enough to fit in a back pocket (4-5" square). Right now, I am just using a Ziploc bag but I want something more durable. Any ideas?

Aloksak bags might work for you.

I have these in larger sizes in my hiking gear, for keeping things waterproof.  They're essentially thick ziploc bags, and come in quite a few sizes.  I bought mine at REI, but I think they're on Amazon and other places as well.

I think you may be right. They look like they might be exactly what I am looking for. Thanks!

I have one of those that my brother got me for my phone when I go kayaking, but as I have a waterproof phone I've never felt the need to use it.

It never occurred to me to put anything else in it.   :facepalm:

We sponsor a booth at a local outdoor show where attendees can make a pocket first aid kit. As you put it, one to handle the small boo-boos. We supply attendees with 2 gauze pads, 3- (1"x3") bandaids, 2-(2"x3") bandaids, 2-(1-1/2x2") bandaids, 2 antibiotic ointment packets, 2 alcohol pads, and 2 antiseptic wipes. At the end of the line they pick up a small zip-lock bag. You can get zip-lock bags in 2, 4, 6 mil. The thicker the bag the more hardy. I have carried these first aid kits in my briefcase, car, and desk. Pop one in my pocket when I go out trail walking or do the tourist routine (never know when a bandaid will cure someones heel blister). We use 2 mil bags. If I was carrying it in my pocket every day, I would opt for a 4 or 6 mil bag.

You can also use a small tin such as an Altoid box.

By the way, at the last outdoor show we had 400 kits made by the participants.
