An idea I'm working on is to build a small very basic FAK stuffed inside a 3 1/2" high pill bottle.

INSIDE OF PILL BOTTLE:
A few bandaids of small and medium size
2 3"x3" gauze pads
2 knuckle bandaids
2 doses of Amodium
2 doses of Benedrill

OUTSIDE OF PILL BOTTLE:
Adhesive tape

I think I'll get those items packed and then see what room is left to fill.

Possible filler items:
Tweezers
Small tube antibiotic ointment

This kit would be for a dayhike pack, tacklebox, glove compartment, etc.
Any suggestions????

I recommend a single-use packet of antibiotic ointment instead of a small tube. Also, include two safety pins, #3 if they can fit.

Edit: For the glove box I recommend something bigger.

Wildman... I find the cloth knuckle band aids are much more useful than traditional ones, pack more... there are small wallet size packets of hemostatic gauze available...it won't be sterile anyway, repack a Kerlix gauze and vacuum seal it

USNERDOC has some pretty good ideas on youtube

Very satisfied with the First Aid Kit Trauma Bag link removed. Of course, haven't used it yet, but based on reviews of the kit and the content, feel this is a good kit for a family smile

I don't know but I can't find the video now when I searched for it. It showed infection and possible rejection issues.

Oops! Wrong thread for this reply!!!

When a new member posts a link to a web store, including one that does profit sharing for links, I tend to remove them as probably forum spam.

I did not make the connection until Chaos pointed it out. Often a person or bot would register to spam.

It is for this reason when others and I, when mentioning the name of a store or a product, end our post with a disclaimer stating we have no affiliation with what we just mentioned.

The following is a recent example of such a disclaimer:
