Zombie Apocalypse Gear: Build a Top-Notch First Aid Kit

When “it” happens, one thing is certain: You’re gonna wish you took that first aid class you’ve been putting off.

If you only have room for one product in your zombie survival first-aid kit, of course we recommend the

Elite First Aid Fully Stocked Rapid Response Trauma First Aid Bag

Quikclot Sport Brand Advanced Clotting Sponge ,Stop Bleeding Fast, 50 Gram Package

  • Stops bleeding 3x faster
  • Built for trauma bleeding
  • FDA approved

  • Official tourniquet of the U.S. army
  • 100% proven effectiveness in occluding blood flow in both upper and lower extremities by the U.S. Army’s Institute of Surgical Research

If you need a reminder of why you’ll need a tourniquet on hand during the zombie apocalypse, check out this scene from the Walking Dead where Hershel’s leg was amputated to prevent the spread of the zombie infection…
