Be prepared.

Dr. Lassey has been interested in preparedness and wilderness medicine for years, and over the last several years has refined his Tactical First-Aid Kit ("Tac-FAK").  This pack is designed to prepare you for the majority of first aid needs when you're on the trail, on a campout, riding the creek, or even at home--but without huge size or weight. His kit includes tools not found in traditional kits, that prepare you for minor surgical emergencies and more.

Of course there is no "perfect" first aid kit; there's always a difficult balance between weight/size and preparedness. The bigger the pack, the more you're prepared for, but the less portable it becomes. Dr. Lassey's Tac-FAK strikes the perfect balance, weighing in just under 2 pounds, and is easily fits in or lashes on almost anywhere. His pack offers the most preparedness he could squeeze into 2-pounds. For years Dr. Lassey made packs for his patients, and now Tac-FAK's are available to everyone. The Tac-FAK is right at home in any Bug-out/Get-home bag, hiking pack, ATV box,  car trunk, truck box, glove box, camper, hunting lodge, cabin, safe room or camper.
