So far the information indicates the kits include at least some of the following;

Israeli (type) bandage
Compression Gauze
Decompression needle
ABD Pad
Quick Clot or Quick Clot Pad
Tourniquet
Shears
Gloves
Nasopharyngeal Airway
Tape

I know they were also issuing the "Mark I Kits" but I don't know if they still do.

Does this sound close to current issue/standards?
