I bought a box of equate rolled gauze and surgical dressing from walmart and used a food vacuum/seal machines to compress and seal them into a plastic food bag. I wouldn't say they're the best option but they seemed cheap, they do seem to work, and are an option.
I do have israeli bandages, H&H, and oales modular bandages on hand but I wanted to explore options that you can get at the local supermarket and ways to store them than ordering online. Serious medical equipment isn't all that easy to come by on the east side of the big island if there is anywhere that does stock them.
I used the duct tape idea that I learned from skinnymedic (youtube) where you put a long strip of duct tape above the slit where the bandage wrapping tears open so that you can get a better grip/surface area to grab while tearing in a case your hands are soaked in blood and sweat.
