Team -- Not exactly the most exciting thread, but I think a thread that needs to be put out there. Would like to start this one for those beginner off-roaders / overlanders and if they need a list of MUST HAVES for their first aid kits. Obviously, you can get one of those pre-packaged first aid kits, but even those may or may not everything that you may need.

Aside from a standard first-aid kit, below are some other items recommended:
- extra surgical gloves
- small bottle of rubbing alcohol
- a tourniquet
- car escape tool (not really a first-aid item, but def required)
- emergency thermal blanket

Again, not the most exciting thread but something worth considering when headed out their on the trails.
