If you are out in the middle of nowhere and you need medical help, It would be comforting to know that the emergency kit you are reaching into was designed and assembled by someone who saves peoples lives daily, a real EMT.

What if Survival come to be out of a realization that there are a ton of first aid kits on the market, but most of them are only made to look appealing and would let you down if pressed into the service of trauma. WIS has taken lessons learned from the everyday life of an EMT, and the tools tested from treating things from minor cuts to excessive bleeding, burns to eye injuries and bone fractures, and made sure that there is nothing you do not need in this kit, and everything you do.

First off, the kit has been shoved into a water resistant 600 denier Nylon pouch that is about the size of a football. The pouch has been attached to a velcro rip-away panel, so if you are in a hurry, just reach in and grab it and leave without a second thought. The mounting panel has a adjustable strap on it so it can be mounted to a variety of surfaces, our personal favorite for access was to the back of the driver seat headrest.

Jam packed with 50 different items (total of 105 pieces), and quick access to a tourniquet and window punch  - there enough gear in here that it would behoove you to sit down and take the whole thing apart and really understand how much and what is in your new emergency kit. Here is a list of what is inside:
