I'm looking for a basic first aid pouch to carry in my pack - red, zippered, lightweight, fairly compact, cheap, some type of attachment point is nice, couple of pockets or elastic straps nice but not needed, etc. I don't want anything with too much organization as it rarely works out too well for me so I really just want something that separates the basic first aid kit from everything else and is easy to find. I saw the one that Evan uses which looks pretty nice too. Any ideas? Thanks!

 I used to use a small red dry bag from Walmart.   Clear on on front.   Red on the back.   About $6.   Keeps things organized and visible.   Roll top/buckle closure to clip it into my pack

It appears they’ve changed it a bit from the one I have, but MEC has a decent first aid pouch. Two sizes.

 I use a zipper pouch from eagle creek, it's mesh, and has a sort of clear coating in it. They are readily available- I got mine at REI. I believe I got size medium. I will try to find a picture of it, but essentially I have it secured to the lid via elastic cord and a cord lock. Pretty simple and easy to access. Enough room for a decent IFAK, but not so big as to get unwieldy.

 I use a granite gear air sack as one of my first aid kits.

no organization at all but featherweight and pretty water resistant. The tabs at the top could be used for a caribiner or grim-lock. I put my boo-boo kit in an altoid tin to keep it seperate.

Thanks everyone. After looking through all the great ideas, I went with the Eagle Creek mesh kit in red. It's very lightweight, basic, good footprint size to fit everywhere, see through to help with finding what I need, and cheap. I'll see how it shakes out. Appreciate it

 word of warning: I used an Eagle Creek pouch for awhile, don't let your tape contact the side of the sack for too long, when I removed it out it took the waterproof coating with it! (and that was just the side of the roll)
