Your kit is pretty similar to what I carry. The compressed gauze is great stuff for a space-limited kit. One thing I do carry in addition is a packet of Quik-Clot. Never used it, but it's intended to accelerate the clotting process and has been used in combat situations for treating large wounds. I know there are mixed opinions on the stuff, and there is actually a possibility of burning yourself with it as the chemical reaction creates heat. But I figure it's better to stop heavy bleeding first and foremost, especially if you're not going to be able to expect medical assistance any time soon.
