Sneak Peek: Wild Hedgehog Tactical and Ryker Nylon Collaborate on the EDATK

Wild Hedgehog Tactical assembles and sells a variety of trauma and first aid kits. Ryker Nylon makes the AFAK (Ankle First Aid Kit), an ankle pouch designed to carry essential aid items. It sounds like a match made in heaven to me.

These companies have teamed up to offer the EDATK or Every Day Ankle Trauma Kit, a fully stocked version of the AFAK. It features components like the SOFT-Wide Tourniquet, HyFin Chest Seals, and Celox Rapid hemostatic gauze and weighs in at 1 pound fully stocked.

The EDATK is designed to be carried on the ankle discreetly and comfortably anywhere from the trail to the office. Each compartment is individually secured so that items won’t be lost during high activity.

Stay tuned for pricing and release information. The release date should be closer to the end of this month.

Wild Hedgehog Tactical Ouch Pouch

I’ve been carrying an Ouch Pouch from Wild Hedgehog Tactical for about a year. It spends most of its time in the hydration pack that I use for hiking and biking. I’ve had to raid it several times and I’ve really come to like this simple, compact first aid kit.

The Ouch Pouch isn’t that different from something you can build yourself… except you are going to have to pay up for large quantities of the components only to strip them down for use in a compact first aid kit. I like the quality of the components used in the Ouch Pouch. There are brands like Medline, 3M, and Curad. I also like the versatility of the selected components. Items like Steri Strips can be used a number of ways and can close some pretty nasty wounds in a pinch.

Components:

  • 1 Pair Nitrile Gloves
  • 1″x3″ Bandages (5)
  • 2″x4″ Bandages (2)
  • Gauze Pad
  • Aspirin Pack
  • Antihistamine Pack
  • Ibuprofen Pack
  • 3M Medical Tape
  • 2x Bacitraicin Antibiotic Gel Packs
  • Pack of 3M Steri Strips
  • Purell Wipe
  • 2x Iodine Wipes
  • ‚Äč2x Alcohol Wipes

I’ve added a couple doses of anti-diarrhea tablets to mine because nothing will ruin a day on the trail or at the range quite some intestinal distress. Other than that, this is a capable, basic, and fairly complete kit at a decent price.
