I myself have saved the life of a fellow soldier using one of these.
The blood soaks in, swelling the tampon, and sealing the entry/exit wounds.
Burlap sacks *anyone who lives on/around a farm will have EASY access to these. Or if you purchase potatoes in anything other than plastic bags.*
Cut them open and lay them flat, then paint them dayglo orange on one side, and black/green/brown on the other side. Use the dayglo colored side for signaling from distances, and use the other side for shelter... the darker colors will absorb sunlight better and if you have multiple you can string them together to make a sealed shelter to help block wind/sun but retain heat in colder environments.
I'll try and remember to post more as I think of them.
