Good choice for compact kits. Smaller and lighter than 7.5" shears, but just as strong. Blunt ends protect patient and responder, serrated blades work through tough materials.

These are the standard EMT shears that you see. Unlike on of the other reviewers I like the smaller size (5.5") because they fit better in a smaller first aid kit. Better to carry smaller shears than non at all.
That said, these are not the highest quality. I practiced with them in cutting a pair of jeans, and it took some effort to get the jeans cut.

As others have said it works well for smaller kits. At its price there is no reason to not have one everywhere they maybe needed. Though i would get the larger one if i was going to use them regularly.

Great for smaller kits, while still big enough to not get lost in large hands. Provides good cutting power in a smaller package.

I thought these would be sufficient, but I would recommend the larger size.
