Anyone here carry a few bandaids and antiseptic wipes in a unused credit card slot in your wallet?I'd like to drop 2 large bandaids, 2-3 small bandaids, a couple antiseptic wipes, and/or alcohol swabs into the pouch as a "just in case my knife slips" or "just in case my kid trips..." but can't seem to figure out the best method.

 

 

I've been trying to find a small plastic baggies (ziplock style) to put a few things in but I can't find any packaging that'd work.

 

I'd opt for a bit larger wallet sized version but my pockets are packed up already (left front Iphone + Wallet, right front Keys, flashlight, and knife) and I've been avoiding back pocket carry due to arterial and nerve issue concerns.

 

Belt carry is an option but I'd but not at work (dress clothes only) which is where I spend the majority of my time. Winter would afford jacket pockets though...

Its where he packs his 'goods' for sale. 

 

I leave all the first aid things in MY EDC bag if I was working a desk job it would sit beside my desk as it is its usually out in my truck which is only a few hundred yards away so still fairly easy access.

Why not just put them straight in? The items should be sufficiently sealed to stand up to it

Salty Dog,  I work in a secure facility, as a result we are unfortunately not allowed to carry bags into said facility that are not "clear plastic." I choose not to carry a bag as a result. I do have a med kit in my vehicle (as well as my wife's vehicle, who is also an EMT.)

 

Landlubber, at the time I do carry these items without any extra packaging however I thought that a ziplock style baggie might allow me to "vaccume pack" them by hand which could save some space.

 

The issue with carrying med supplies on my person is one that I've not addressed "in totality" this boo-boo kit is really the first step of many into trying to become more proficent on the Badages side of things. I will eventually have to address away from work and at work options but I figured I'd do more research into those options at a later time. (Mind you my at work options are realistically more easily provided to me by the facility I work in, than carried on my person.)

Just realized I was reading screen names in the WRONG place!!!! B3dlam the first part was for you. Corbs the second was for you! Man do I feel dumb?!?

 

Also why can't I edit my own posts... says I "do not have permission"

I think with flat sealed things you can't really get much more air out, usually works best with squidgy things like bandages.

Not to sure, seems like a few NC people on here, but I am very new here, so I'm still making my way around!
