From turnout bags to fluids, bandages or whatever...if it can be legally purchased.

List 'em if you've used 'em, preferably with a link to their website.

I'd like this to be a central location to help folks equip themselves.

Tactical Medical Solutions --
Great products. I'm a happy repeat-customer of theirs. They also have a great video download section and blog that's well worth checking out.

I buy all sorts of crap from amazon.com.

And bountree is a reputable medical supplier.

Also Galls.

Really, though, most of my gear I purchased in person from a medical supply store. The same type of stores that sell wheelchairs and stuff.

I sell a good number of pre-stock jump bags and first aid kits in my store and on my website:

http://store.oldgrouch.biz/emsunandge.html

I tell everyone that comes in that none of my kits are 100%, but there is usually one that gets them to 90% of what they need, and they can add the last 10% to be just what they want.

EMP is a good one that I have dealt with and as far as bags, pouches, etc. are concerned I have had great experiences with Diamondback Tactical and Tactical Tailor.

Howdy folks,
I am a flight nurse.  Additionally I own a business with a product for the EMS industry.  I sell to about 9 different EMS suppliers.  It has been my experience that Southeastern Emergency Equipment has the best/cheapest prices for all things you would need to put together a medical bag including the bag itself.  Being in the medical industry, I already have a very extensive medical supply so I haven't been shopping around at all of the retailers who are catering to the prepping community.  However, being in business, I am pretty sure Southeastern Emergency Equipment will be cheaper on most if not all the items you may want.  I know for sure they are cheaper than AllMed as posted by another member on here.

The website is www.seequip.com  I also talked to one of the sales reps, Laurie Fish and she agreed to let me share her contact information here.  Laurie is awesome and can answer any questions you may have.  You can tell her that Jarrett referred you that way she will have an idea about what you will be looking for.

Laurie's ph # is 817 3 zero zero 6603

Hope this is of some help to all,
Jarrett

How serious of a kit should I get? sutures etc?

If you get a stethoscope, do you know how to use it or what to listen for?
If you get a blood pressure cuff, do you know how to use it and what the numbers mean?
If you get an Ambu bag, do you even know what one is?

At the very minimum I would start with getting or renewing your First Aid/CPR card and start from there. Maybe you would even like to get your first responders card after that (here that is a step below a EMT).

If you get a suture kit, can you mentally or physically put them into someone? If you are not used to putting them in often and are doing your first ones on  human, especially a loved one, it can be rather intimidating.

esutures.com has tons of sutures.  And for practice (on what I am not sure), you can even buy expired ones.

I have to give a big +1 to rescue-essentials. I purchased just over $100 worth of stuff from them and got it in two days with standard shipping. Also with ordering over $100 I got a free little knife for dirty work and a free set of EMT sheers. The sheers are the kind that will cut through everything. I also found that they have the best prices on the IBD in every size they come in.

Have to give another recommendation for Rescue-Essentials.  I've been stocking up through them a lot lately for my EMT-B class.  Ridiculously fast shipping, nice freebies(check http://www.rescue-essentials.com/FREE_Items_s/4.htm), and just all around good people to work with.

For the least expensive trauma pads, 4 x 4 gauze, aluminum splints and ace wraps that I've been able to find:

100 4 x 4's for $8.29 http://www.buyemp.com/product/1110503.html
Multi-use trauma bandage $2.05 http://www.buyemp.com/product/1111207.html
Flex-all alumi-splint (same as a SAM but rolled and cheaper) $6.95 http://www.buyemp.com/product/1051308.html
4" latex free elastic wraps $1.29 http://www.buyemp.com/product/1111204.html

There is a $10.50 handling fee on all orders under $150.00 so bulk purchases/group buys are suggested.

Understand that, with just the four line items listed above, a clever individual can field dress and stabilize around 80-90% of the traumatic injuries your average somewhat trained prepper is likely to encounter and actually be able to deal with. The 4x4's and trauma bandages stop bleeding and cover wounds, the splint to stabilize fractures and serious sprains and the elastic wraps (Ace bandages) to affix the 4x4's and trauma bandages while applying pressure as needed as well as securing the splints and support light sprains.

My suggested stocking levels per kit are:
25 pkgs. 4x4's (use the remaining pads in other kits)
4 ea. trauma bandage
2 ea. aluminum splint
6 rls. 4" elastic wrap

You can get medical kits with syringes, sutures, IVs and nearly everything but pharmaceutical drugs. They always have sales,ftree shipping deals, and are very reliable. They also have everything from Challenge Coins to Bulletproof Vests. Love that site.

Don't get things that you weren't trained for.
I would recommend you to take a Wilderness First Responder (WFR) class followed by a trauma class (PHTLS or ITLS)
Both classes combined together would give you very comprehensive knowledge and skill on both medical(illness) and trauma care in remote/disaster situation.

The type of kits you should get depend on many factors:
- The level and scope of your training.
- The method of storage and carrying (home/car/on person/minimalist)
- Type of emergency you are preparing for (general medical kit/trauma kit/disaster kit)
- The budge you have on medical equipment.

For suppliers, I too vouch Rescue-Essentials and Chinook, both are fast, reliable sources.
