If you can afford more then by a real good med. to big kit if not maybe you can by a few things at a time maybe even on sale but I got more than that in my first aid kit. If something bad happens you want to have a good first aid kit because if you get a scratch and it gets infected while out in the elements you could get real sick and maybe even die.

Keep the first one, as it has more tools of use. Or you might want to merge the second one with the first. Such as the info card(easier read in an emergency) and other things that may not be present in the first.

I would take both of them and combine them, and make them fit in your bob. First Aid, med. treatment will be a huge deciding factor in the success of your survival. I personally have the S.T.O.M.P. II medical bag with a bunch of my own extras in it. I keep it right next to the bob, and will never leave home without it. It also pays to take a first responders course, or study a combat life savers course book. The knowledge for giving a proper I.V. will be paramount.
