Each year we hear plenty of stories from around the world about people or their pets getting bit by venomous snakes, many of whom die or lose a limb. Recently, the news informed us of a man who was hunting and was bitten by a poisonous snake ( you can read article here ). He was able to stay calm enough to get his $10 snake bite kit out of his bag and extract the venom. In doing this, he was able to save his own life. Now, you’ve got to be wondering ‘Well, where can I get one of these snake bite kits?” No worries! Harry’s Army Surplus has got you covered!
You may think having a snake bite kit is not a top priority in your bag while hiking, camping, or even walking the dog, but it should be especially if you live in an area with a high or growing population of venomous snakes. We offer three different snake bite kits and all three are extremely affordable. The most basic kit we offer is the Coughlan’s Snake Bite Kit. At $4.99 this is something anyone can afford. We like this kit for its compact size. This kit is small enough to keep in your pocket (which is ideal in a snake bite situation). it comes complete with 3 suction cups, an easy to use one-hand lymph constrictor, scalpel, antiseptic swab, and detailed instructions that we recommend you read before you head out on you adventure so you already know how to use it.
If you want a kit that is not so basic, then take a look at the Sawyer Bite and Sing Extractor Kit. On sale for just $17.95, this kit is perfect to have at home, in your car, or in your pack. This emergency kit can remove venom and poison from snake bites, bee stings, wasp stings, and other bug bites. It includes the extractor pump, 4 plastic cups, 1 razor, 3 sterile adhesive bandages, 2 alcohol wipes, 2 bite antiseptics and pain reliever wipes, and instructions all packed into a small plastic carrying case.
