As others have said - a great post. Thanks. A recent but handy addition to what I carry is a handful of cable ties (sometimes called zip ties). These are great! On a recent trip a pack shoulder strap pulled out of where it attaches to the lower main body of the pack. I was able to use a knife and put two holes in the strap and where it attached to the pack, then cable tie up. It fixed the pack, we finished the trip and it's done a couple of trips since (hmmm must get it fixed properly one day).
  

Thanks and cheers.

Jeez, one of those on a cut for 5 minutes and you would be empty  Roll Eyes I've seen this mentioned before, but is there any medical evidence that it is actually useful or effective?

It's more the sort of thing you would carry in your hand bag.

My nurse wife tells me (in case I should manage to gash myself in the scrub) that to stop a wound bleeding you need to apply lots of pressure to it.  I guess this item of "womens business" would give you something clean to put over the wound to help stop dirt and crap getting into it.  Although, I just carry a couple of cotton pad things from the first aid section of the chemist.

Great post....it's helped me refine what I pack and given some solid pointers for future purchases.

For a massive traumatic injury I' going to add either Celox bandages or powder. The short vesion is that it is a clotting agent used by the military....or somer version of it. Dump it into the wound and it creates a clot to stop massive bleeding.

From Celox.co.nz website:


Celox granules, when they come into contact with blood, swell and stick together to make a gel like clot. This clot sticks well to moist tissue to plug the bleeding site.

Celox does not interfere with your body’s normal clotting process; it only clots the blood it comes directly into contact with.


Natural product with a known metabolic pathway


Celox is a natural product made with chitosan - a natural polysaccharide. Chitosan has a known metabolic pathway - that means any left in your system is broken down by the body’s normal enzymes and converted into glucosamine – a sugar already present in your body.


The proven benefits of using Celox


Celox has a number of benefits including:
•it clots blood fast (on average - in thirty seconds, a few minutes
for a major wound)
•it significantly reduces blood loss
•it safely clots blood containing anticoagulants like Coumadin,
Heparin and Warfarin
•it’s effective in clotting hypothermic blood
•it’s easy to use and requires no training – instructions are on the pack
•it can be left in the wound for up to seven days without any adverse effects
•it doesn’t affect long term wound healing
Celox comes in small, easy to carry, lightweight packs that have a shelf life of three years. Celox can be found in Radius Pharmacies nationwide as a pharmacy recommended product.

I think the bandages go for $75....not cheap but for a REALLY life threatening injury may be not that expensive after all.

Sounds like a handy product? I will look around for some.

As for this thread, I can't say how many times I've read it but its great! Always have a read when I'm packing my kit for a hunt. Helps me lighten the load when I start putting all the extras in. Has there been any updates to your pack Nimrod ( besides the Siltarp) that you would like to share?
