I have what I call blood sponges (absorbent dressings), gauze, scissors, tourniquet, and airway.
If that won't save someone then the clotting agents aren't likely to help much at that point because everything else will have been tried first and a lot of blood will have been lost.
The only people I've seen use clotting agents are corpsmen, paramedics, and doctors, and I'm not one of those, so… If it comes to that, better luck in the next life.
