Good snake bite kit available here:
https://survivalfirstaid.worldsecuresys … e-bite-kit
Pretty good value considering the smart bandages are around $20 each. Handy pack that can attach to your belt/harness/backpack etc.
Ordered one this morning to replace/update mine after it got wet. Was looking for some smart bandages & found it. Pre-orders only at the moment with shipping due 19th Aug.

That is indeed a good price mate, thanks for posting.

On the smart bandages, we had/have normal compression bandages in our kits and vehicles.
After I tended to an 8 year old that got bitten by a snae some time ago, the paramedics just bandaged over my bandage, and said we'd done a good job with the compression. I said, yeah, I was monitoring his toes all the time for swelling etc.
Any way he showed me one of the bandages and said, hey all guesss work gone....
I agreed and now have them in our kits too.
Quite dear, but you can get them sub $20 if you look around. And like really, whats $20 when youre dealing with a snake bite....

I've got a couple of the snake bite bandages, but might grab this just for the car/house when we move rural.

Not a bad looking kit at all. We get a lot of Brown snakes and whilst we have plenty of bandages in the first aid kit would be good to have something like this ready to grab in the event someone does get bitten. Quick and easy with no thinking about what you need required, no tipping the first aid kit upside down looking for what you need while in a panic.

Bloody hell. I didn't even check postage cost. Not surprised though the way some people gouge you on the postage.
Thanks for letting us know. Some times the good deals aren't as good as they first look.

I bought a couple of snake bite kits from the snakeman, he travels Australia doing the 4wd shows and has a large tent where he shows you the types of snakes likely to be encountered in the bush , and his kits are $10 in a bright orange pack with the pressure or elastic bandage inside but he sells out real quick at the shows, think he comes from queensland

thought i would add an update to this thread
these kits are used by some mining comnpanies in remote areas. It includes snakebite bandages
K55 High Risk Remote Area First Aid Kit Softpack
currently on sale at $147.00 (down from $245.00) not cheap but is a good kit
https://firstaidkitsaustralia.com.au/fi … gJY9vD_BwE
then theres this one, a bit more affordable, & compact enough to hook on your belt or backpack
https://www.survivalfirstaidkits.net.au/snake-bite-kit

also an update on the snakebite 'smart bandages' (they have rectangles that stretch to square when the right pressure is applied)
now $19.95 ea, so a kit that includes 1 or 2 can make these better value
