Another Option for Carrying Medical

Several weeks back I ran an article on carrying medical gear.  In that article I showed my methods for actually carrying this gear on-body.  I always have a Soft-T Wide tourniquet in my pocket, but when doing activities that are more dangerous than usual I have an ankle kit that carries a tourniquet, packing gauze,...

The Inherent Stupidity in the Search for Motive
