I have ideas for additional upgrades such as getting a Bolin Chest Seal, wound seal, two nasopharyngeal airways with lube (28 Fr), 4" x 16" burn dressing, activated charcoal, Tactical Combat Casualty Reference Card, two Tactical Combat Casualty Care Cards, permanent marker and replacing the SWAT Tourniquet with a C-A-T. What I am not sure of is the Combat Eye Shield.

The kit comes standard with oval eye pads. What I want to know is, would the Combat Eye Shields make a difference or are they no better than the oval eye pads?

I welcome suggestions for more modifications.
