Blisters?

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

While this package contains everything you might need for battling blisters, it was poorly designed in the way they adhere the Moleskin cut outs to the sheet and the size of the package they arrive in. I used two(2) blister pads from the sheet and when removing the pads and carefully sliding the sheets back into the package the moleskin peeled up and adhered to itself. Although it is a great idea overall it is useless when the other pads are destroyed by putting away the sheets.

A Foot's Best Friend

This is a great little kit to have around when hiking and doing things where blisters are highly possible. I always carry this with whatever FAK I am bringing on an adventure. If I am with a group I keep it with My AMK Mountain Fundementals, by myself it is with my AMK UL .7 and on day trips or group trips where I am not carrying the group FAK it is with my UL .3. So it goes with me almost everywhere.
One thing I wish it had was some more Glacier Gel. One small and one large is on the low side but you can always add more Glacier Gel I guess.

How many Glacier Gel dressings does this...

Blister Help

My first advice would be to carry a Moleskin kit to prevent blisters. At the first thought of a hot spot or blister apply the Moleskin. If you do indeed get a blister these bandages can help take some of the pressure off the area.
