I would advise against an ammo can for any situation. For a number of reasons:

  • No in-built ability to organize contents. (You don't want to dig through everything you have to find what you need.)

  • "Quick, go in the house and grab that green ammo can/box." How many green can/boxes/bags do you have? Probably a Hell of a lot. You want something that, one, you don't have a dozen of, and two, just about everyone instinctively associates with First Aid. I use one of these as my trauma bag in my car. If I'm helping someone on the side of the road, wherever, I just say: "Grab the orange medical bag from behind the driver seat of my car". Remember: When emergencies hit, most people go into anywhere from an urgent to a panic mode. You want something even the most flustered person is going to be able to find/recognize.

  • Ammo boxes are heavy. If you're sending a 6 year old kid to get it, besides the possible confusion in finding it among two dozen green things, it could be hard for them to lug it across a yard. Even a loaded bag is shedding the added weight of the box. And even if it's heavy and/or awkward for a child, they can drag it a long way by the strap.

  • They can be hard to open one handed. If you're solo and injured, losing blood, zippers are easy to operate with one hand. Good bags use YKK self lubricating zippers that open easily, with the weight of the bag providing counter-balance. The organization aspect comes into play in this scenario. If you're becoming confused, light headed, or losing conciseness, you don't want to be digging through a box of stuff for a tourniquet or blood stopper or an Israeli bandage. You want to know exactly where in that bag to reach.

  • A bag will hold a lot more than an ammo can. I carry just about anything you could need, and I've still got room for more if I really needed it.

    This is a smaller, less expensive model of the bag.
