Aside from the feminine pads being shaped to be more comfortable, I know they and trauma pads are the same. As for easier to obtain? Not really unless you are in the middle of nowhere and the only store is a gas station. Cheaper? Again, not really. There is a slight difference; not enough to impact one's decision.

Even if you are slightly OCD, your line of thinking would be feminine pads belong with other personal care items; trauma pads belong in a first aid kit.

Back to my original question. Do we need six trauma pads when the kit already has a tourniquet, QuikClot, two 4" trauma bandages and two compress gauzes?
