OK, I admit, I'm curious! What have you needed it for that is first aid related?
Cuts, small ones and deep ones. I always take some with me while fishing in Canada (remote). Slip with a fillet knife or tear up a finger or two while trying to release 40+" pike while he's still in the water (they'll make a terrible mess of your boat). I'd give up band aids for super glue anytime.

Not only that but have you ever tried to sew yourself back together?

Squirt some glue in a cut and push the skin back together and your done.
Don't get me wrong it stings like hell but the pain will subside.

i agree.....

should have included superglue......i learned this when my son fell and cut his chin open walking off the field after football practice. (hit a sprinkler) looked like it needed about 4 stitches.....we waited in the emergency room for 1 1/2 hrs only to have the attending phy come in and dab a drop of superglue on it, hold it a minute and say ok , your done.....($387.00) i have used it lots since then..AJ

Devil Doc! Not as mean but still a Marine. Funny thing is after 6 years as a FMF Corpsman 1998-2004 all I take to the field is a Unit One. TP is more important to me than dressings. I like staple guns to suture kits for field use.

Unit one is an old school Marine Corpsman med bag. TP is what you use to wipe your butt. lol.

I just never get injured, and if I do, I always find a way to improvise using what I have. I would take a big med bag if I had a group of people with known conditions.

super glue-Duct tape-feminine hygene pads and whatever strong painkiller you can get your hands on and a bar of soap for cleaning will cover a multitude of accidents.
