Keep blood where it belongs.

Out of the pack
I had an expired pack of the 50g Quickclot so I figured I would open it up and post a picture.
In my pack for big trips
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This stuff works. Plain and simple. It could be a life saver. I've even used it to stop a major nose bleed.
Great to have
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have used other homeostatic agents and it is amazing how quickly they will stop serious bleeding. I have not used the commercial quick clot yet but I always carry it and I am not concerned about its effectiveness
I never leave home without it.
I keep a couple in my car and one in each pack just in case. I haven't had to use them on anything too serious yet thankfully, but if something more serious were to happen I know I would be prepared. I've seen this stuff in action and it works.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
My two year old had to get 8 stitches from a fall. He was bleeding profusely from his forehead & within 20 seconds of compressing the wound with the pack, the bleeding had completely stopped. I certainly recommend this product & am purchasing more.
A Little "Peace-of-Mind"...

HOPE NEVER TO HAVE TO REVIEW: So this is just to suggest and encourage ALL to have this on hand for any out-door activities. It weighs 'nothing', and just so worth it, just in case, even if not for you or yours, maybe someone else in trouble. I cycle mostly, and just got this product, and the A.M.K. .9 and will be adding this to it, to carry in my hydration pack.
*Great Kit, glad I listened to reviews, as the larger kit (though better furnished, would have been just too large/heavy for "done-in-a-day" cycling. Will be getting the larger kit for carrying in the car/home. And what a thoughtful gift for that out-doors' person in your life!
Always in my kit.
Quickclot is a great idea for in anyones medical kit. I have an AMK .9 kit, and added a pouch of Quickclot. It's not that heavy, and it really does work. In mountaineering and ice climbing, having so many sharp points that are looking to get a piece of you, this could save your life or your partners (As long as you have decent medical experience!)
Does What it Says it Does

I've seen QuickClot in action and it works. I keep two 25g packages in my first aid kit along with a SAM splint. $12 is a small price to pay to put the brakes on a heavy bleeder in a hurry. Plenty of other methods to slow bleeding without these, but why not use the tech if it's there?
AMK Sales rep and Professional Adventure Racer Kyle Peter explains how QuikClot Sport works - with its non-chemical formula, QuikClot stops bleeding fast without causing burns or requiring complicated removal afterward. A must for every adventurer.
