Chances are, you clicked this link because you could use a good quality medical kit (or just like free stuff). In either case, you’re in the right place.
MyMedic assembled their RangeMedic kits by compiling injury data associated with hunting accidents, shooting ranges, and direct testimonials provided by military and law enforcement professionals. What they ended up with was a streamlined kit that includes all the essential gear to manage the types of injuries you can expect while out running and gunning. These kits comes in two trims: basic and advanced, and for the purposes of this review, we’re going to stick with the advanced kit. Why? In my opinion, it’s the better option if you really intend to be prepared… but it also happens to be the kit we’re giving away as well!
These kits come with a wide variety of emergency medical essentials, from a tourniquet to a chest seal, as well as a few creature comforts that’ll help make a tough day at the range just a bit easier. Right off the bat, you’ll notice that these kits come with a RATS tourniquet, which I know many of our readers are not fans of. While I don’t personally carry a RATS tourniquet, I do believe that they get a bit of a bad shake online. While they may not be the best tourniquets on the market, independent testing has shown that they are actually competitive with most other brands when it comes to efficacy in stopping blood loss.
As the National Center for Biotechnology Information put it, “All three tactical tourniquets showed substantial capacity for hemorrhage control. However, the two new tourniquet models (RATS and TMT) did not offer any improvement over the C-A-T, which is currently issued to military services.”
Once you’re past the tourniquet, two zippers and some velcro opens the kit’s main body where you’ll find the rest of the gear. This design is my favorite part of the RangeMedic kit: it makes it extremely easy to access whatever you need within the kit without tearing it apart and making a huge mess. All too often, medical kits are packed so tight with stuff that pulling out a band aid creates a full fledged gear explosion — not so with the RangeMedic Kit. In fact, this kit is so well organized that once you get accustomed to it, it’s pretty easy to manipulate without looking at it — something that’s essential for use in many military and law enforcement duty situations.
