You don't need to break the bank for a robust first aid kit or emergency survival gear.
Recently, Serious Survivor created a series about bugging out on a budget.
Four different compact emergency kits are separately unpacked so you can see exactly how much bang for your buck you're getting.
The last kit is a wound care kit so we didn't add it to the lineup.
4 Compact First Aid Kits Under $20
I try to find items that are easy for everyone to obtain and can be purchased online. There are two kits in this video set that came directly from Walmart, but for the record, I am in no way affiliated with Walmart, Amazon or Ebay or any of these companies listed.
I am simply evaluating them and discussing the contents of each. Hopefully, these series will help people to find kits that are affordable and good starting points. First aid is an area that is never complete, it can always be expanded…especially the knowledge and abilities aspect of it.
This series focuses on the gear that is not only affordable but also of good quality.
Total Resources 57 piece first aid kit
Can be purchased at Walmart and similar store. The brand Total Resources supplies Walmart with many different types of these kits. This kit has the absolute basic needs. A good starter or maybe a car first aid kit, but it is not very deep in its inventory.
Adventure Medical Kits 1.0 First aid Kit
Can be purchased at various locations and stores. This is a little more comprehensive than the last kit, but is still a basic first aid kit with the minimum amount of supplies.
Total Resources 85 piece first aid kit
Can be purchased at Walmart and similar store. This kit has the absolute basic needs. A good starter or maybe a car first aid kit, a little more in depth than the previous two kits.
105 Piece First Aid Kit
This is the best of the 4. It has a total 105 pieces and also boasts a Firestarter and multi wallet tool.
This is somewhat more in the aspect of first aid and for the price is probably the best choice of the 4.
The last kit review in this video is an advanced wound care kit which can be seen in the video.
