NRA Family InSights article on first aid in the field discusses preparedness to render first aid in the outdoor environment. “The trauma kits from TMS Outdoors is my personal favorite. Five former Green Berets founded the company, so it’s chock full of combat-proven, leak-stopping gear, including one of those speedy tourniquets that have saved so many lives in the War on Terrorism. It’s small, and molle on the back allows it to affix to your gear.” – Guy Sagi. Read the article here.
A very special thank you to Guy Sagi from Fear and Loading for the product review he did on our TMS Outdoors Trauma Kits.
“I am really impressed with the Trauma Kit from TMS Outdoors (and with 12 years search and rescue experience, and former CPR and Advanced First Aid instructor for the Red Cross, that’s saying something). Most outdoor first aid kits would have trouble handling the fake blood on that cut tree…stay tuned for a full report, but if the outdoors is part of your lifestyle, take a close look at this kit.” -Guy

An excellent article on the importance of safety while hunting. As the article states, “one in three hunters will have some sort of incident with a tree stand in their hunting career.” Use a tree stand harness and make sure you carry a proper trauma kit, not a first aid kit, into the woods with you.
According to the DoD’s Defense Casualty Analysis System, during 2010 & 2011 there were 10,471 soldiers wounded in action in Afghanistan. During that same time period, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) there were 14,881 gun and tree stand related hunting injuries in the United States.
The US military trusts TMS medical kits and SOFTT-W tourniquets to treat gun shot wounds and injuries…Shouldn’t you?
