It's not in my med kit; I have the blue trainer.

I have dedicated bleeding items:

Most times you will only need a bandaid or something small so for me I like keeping the large, rarely used trauma specific items in a separate pouch. Saves getting blood on everything every time I cut a finger or need to dig a splinter out of myself.

The one I listed is my big kit. I also have the following, also modified, in my EDC bag.
