    Don't take it so personally. That one guy, Skeeter I think his handle is, he's a real tool and a half. Watch your 6 with him!

So anything I pack has to be able to survive that test.

    Those pelican cases are nice, but ouch!

    We have FAKs in the vehicles and larger one in the house, but all are stocked more for boo-boos and controlling bleeding than anything else. Then we have more extensive tools and supplies in the house stored in boxes or totes, but more like a medical storeroom than a kit or cart. Nothing in between. Been thinking I need to fill that 'in between' gap, but don't want to break the bank on a $300 case either. Need something though, if I had to bugout right now and in a hurry I wouldn't even have a thermometer or a stethoscope with me.
    Everything marked, everything 'membered. You wait, you'll see.

    I know, right!?! That's why I went with that first case. I'm pretty disappointed it doesn't fit my needs. I'll probably try and unload it.

    Something you guys might want to think about... Go to a large craft store like Hobby Lobby. They have an awesome case that's perfect, light weight and has many compartments and the plastic zippered clip bags. They travel like a rolling carry on with the retractable handle. They run about 69.00 but you can wait for a sale and get 40% off. I purchased a black one and it's perfect as a crash cart. I keep all my medicals in it and it's easy to maneuvor and light weight. I can handle it easy.

    I'll see if I can find a photo.

    Mine is simular to this one but not exactly, and mine is made of water proof canvas and large metal wheels. Also, mine came with two compartmented clear removable tool boxes that stack inside the center compartment. This looks close.
    I got mine at Hobby Lobby.

    All good ideas.

    Except for one thing.

    If your medical supplies can fit into a roll-around anything, or a Hardigg case (of any size), you simply DONT HAVE ENOUGH.

    I'm not even talking about 'sexy' stuff like IV solutions and suture materials. In a SHTF situation, the amount of plain old gauze you will NEED to effectively treat almost anything is staggering. Think cubic meters, not cubic inches...stock up now, put paper boxed and wrapped items in plastic bags, and put them on the shelf.
