Nice case -- won't use most of the included supplies.

So I mainly got this for the box, not for the medical supplies. In my general opinion, most of these kits have mediocre supplies inside that are either aged or low quality.

In this case everything inside was fairly old -- most of the things I wouldn't use in a medical kit. I kept the scissors and forceps -- but the rest of the gauze and whatnot I felt were too old for use.

The case itself is worth the money -- it's well made and will work for any number of other uses.

Overall I'd recommend this if you want a neat, useful hard sided case, but not if you're looking to start an actual medical kit!

Kit came yesterday and hoped to find more first aid items but got only a lot of cotton and roll bandages. bottles (4) were all complete, though with nice little caps that snapped shut! three rusty safety pins and a measuring cup (small). one tourniquet..a white powder was found in the seams of the kit but I washed it off completely. (who knows what that was!) I will upgrade it and keep the roll of cotton batting for cleaning. Review by carol (Posted on 2/9/2017)

A great starting point for a medical kit! Has all the gauze you'll need, and bottles work great for alcohol, peroxide, and whatever else you may need! Highly recommended! Review by Walther (Posted on 1/29/2017)
An interesting Warsaw Pact Kit
Quality

My kit arrived safe and sound, and I figured I would give a breakdown of what it contained so people would get an idea of what might come in theirs. First, though, a small construction description. As seen in the item photos, the box is made out of leather/faux leather with a thick canvas strap. The Red Cross is actually two layered pieces of leather - a Red Circle under a White (in my case, yellow in photo) circle that has had a cross cut out. Now to the contents:

Bulgarian Check List of Standard Components
Medical Scissors
Forceps in a sealed plastic bag
Some form of compress, approx. 1in x 2in (stamp too faint to read)
Green Canvas Tourniquet
2 Small Gauze Rolls
4 Medium Gauze Rolls
1 Tall (twice the height of the others) Medium Gauze Roll
Roll of 1.25cm x 1.5 meter medical tape
Small Conical Measuring Cup
2 Safety Pins
Sealed paper pack of Five Bandages (1983)
Sealed paper Bandage bag, marked "1/2 METbP" (1987)
Large amount of folded paper towels for clean up
Canvas Sling
4 Glass Bottles (2 marked "100" over "1," 1 unmarked, 1 with outline of Bulgaria)
Empty Green Plastic Case, for ointments

The Canvas sling was placed atop the glass bottles, protecting them in transit. The list inside gave me the impression that the kit used to be more "stuffed to the gills" than it is now, but for being a 1980s vintage piece of surplus, it's not a bad deal for this price!

Don't make em like this anymore. It was interesting just to go thru the bag and it's contents. Made a burn kit out of one. A field surgical kit out of the other. Review by Dan R (Posted on 9/15/2016)

The case is sturdy for what appears to be vinyl-coated cardboard, and the layout of the case is quite handy. Mine arrived with bottles broken and Keep Shooting replaced them right away. It;s not too big to take into the field and would easily work as a car or cabin kit. Mine arrived like new and has remained that way as it is used in a work vehicle and we have had no mishaps lately.

If you're a collecter, these are very cool things to hold on to.

Comes with a whack-ton of medical gear! I don't intend to use mine for anything other than show, and the bag is highly specialized , so dont buy it for hiking or anything.

Would be good to keep in the car for safety or in the woodshop!

Bought case for RV use and is perfect.

I bought this case and contents with the full intent of using it in our RV. I make sure it was well aired out and put the glass bottles in a curio cabinet and started adding first aid items like rubber gloves, scissors, aspirin, band aids, other items too numerous to mention. I kept the bandages in the case as they were sealed packages. One of the best things in the case was 2 tourniquets which could be absolutely indispensable. I added all items like rolaids, aspirin, eye wash, and antiseptic and packed the whole bag in our camper and I feel much better always having this on hand. I forgot to mention, DO NOT FORGET to add a package or two of Quick Clot for emergency bleeding. Makes a great kit. Review by James (Posted on 4/13/2016)

Like all the other reviews the kit included the typical stuff. It had some soviet ibuprofen as well! It also included a empty box for a radiation thyroid pill set. It had forceps and tweezers in "sterile" bags as well as a syringe without the needle. The first aid logo is jut like the photo only the way it is made is a red leather circle with a brown circle over it that has the first aid cross cut into it. thinking about buying more..

Mine was in like new condition for its age;it came with 4 bottles one being broken but was not a big deal since I was planning to replace case contents anyway. inside I found a pair of tweezers and one scissors, a tourniquet, lots of gauze packs, a plastic pouch (empty) and a contents list written in Bulgarian. Its carring belt and shoulder straps are nice features making it very convenient for field work.
This case is much better than the soft one I currently have since it offers some degree of protection to what's stored inside especially to plastic alcohol bottles;great size, lots of room for storing various supplies;it also takes less space in my car. Keeping it outside over night it has removed most of the storage odor. Overall this is a nice first aid case which well worth the money. Highly recommended.

Most of the stuff is kind of old, but usable. I will try and wash the glass bottles in the dishwasher. Good for wound cleaning supplies. The bag I have is smaller and this will work great for a home and travel first aide kit. I would still like to know what the powder is in the little pouch. Mine was blue, but I have seen picture of a red powder. Any one know? I tried to translate with no success. Great item as always. Review by Ferenc (Posted on 3/26/2015)

Sturdy construction. It has 9 spots for medicine bottles that are variable in size, using a continuous vinyl strip. Also, two sleeves for things like forceps or bandage scissors. Nice having a waist belt for certain situations. An added feature is the fact that when you open it, you have a workspace between the compartments on the front and the main compartment.

This kit is a great buy. The vinyl case alone is worth the purchase price, everything that it is stocked with is just a bonus. I bought one to use as an emergency medical kit for truck based travel, it worked very well. I dumped out most of the contents and restocked it with more specific stuff for my purposes but it would not take too much extra to turn it into a real kit. Mine came with plenty of bandages and a couple tourniquets and even some box of strange Bulgarian baking soda (we tossed it out) plus so much more. If you get interested in what the info on the Bulgarian packing list says, use Google translate. Google translate has a virtual Cyrillic keyboard for characters we don't have on our American keyboards. Review by Bradley (Posted on 12/25/2014)

A previous reviewer posted the contents of the bag, so I won't waste a lot of time there. I would like to take out the glass bottles and replace them with plastic ones (rubbing alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, iodine, etc.) add a few things like trauma bandages, moleskin, decent band-aids, etc. All in all, it's a good starting point.

I recently got the medical kit. It arrived quickly. I opened and it was packed with various medical things. I really ordered this for my wife to tote her essential oils while traveling. She was really impressed with it and now all her friends are asking for one. Looked brand new.

Thanks

I bought this case to store all my medical supplies at work as I am a first responder and responsible for all the employees on the overnight shift. I believe this case will serve me extremely well some of the contents were very usable other is more of a novelty if you need a medical case for your car or work or some other similar situation I would highly recommend it.

You never quite know what's going to be in these. I've ordered several, and all had the glass bottles and what I assume to be an empty chemical treatment kit, along with some bandages. After that, it's a grab bag, and it's always been a surprise to see what's in there. We use them as a storage for our essential oils and alternative medicines, but they could be easily rebuilt into a modern first aid box. One of them is used by my youngest as an arts and crafts kit, and it's held up quite well. Review by Stephen (Posted on 9/17/2014)
