What's in your IFAK/AFAK?

Just as an intro... I had a "traditional" first aid kit (I think I got it from Sportsmans or Cabelas or something) and realized that, while it looked cool and nifty, in this yellow belt loop bag, was mainly a box of 3rd rate chinese specials, with no substance.

Curious 23andMe twin results show why you should take DNA testing services with a grain of salt
