    Has anyone included this dressing wrapping material in their kits? I can say this great for securing a dressing on the arms or legs as well as holding a dressing in place on someone with fragile skin..

    Yes. I bought a bunch of vet/equestrian wrap which was exactly the same stuff. Local farm store had it on sale a while back for like .79 for a 4"x5yd wrap. Not hard with a pair of big shears to convert it to two 2 inch wide rolls. Good stuff and seems to have ok shelf life.

    Have carried it in my bag and used it frequently doing home visits years ago.. Had to buy it out of pocket at the feed store but it was well worth it..

    I stock it but didn't know about the vet equivalent. I'm sure it costs less at the Co-Op than actual coban. I'll pick up some more next time I'm there.

    Good info, thanks.

    Vet stuff is perhaps a bit heavier duty. At least that's what I've found over the years. Great stuff and comes in many different colors if wanted.
