The North American Rescue’s Flat Emergency Trauma Dressings make a nice addition to your EDC kit.

“The Flat ETD is packaged in a low cube space, flat folded configuration to reduce its diameter and footprint in kits,” North American Rescue officials maintain. “It consists of a resilient elastic wrap equipped with a sterile non-adherent pad, durable securing device and innovative Quick-Grip Roll Control configuration.”

These bandages come in 4-inch and 6-inch widths. Unrolled, both are 70 inches long. When packaged, the 4-inch model is 4.25 inches x 2.75 inches x 0.875 inches. The 6-inch model is 6 inches x 3.5 inches x 0.875 inches in its sealed package.

“The ETD can also be used to sling and swath an arm, to secure splints to an extremity or to perform in any other function requiring an elastic wrap,” NAR officials maintain.

The 4-inch model is $7 each and the 6-inch model is $8 each.
