- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is a great group FAK. It is very complete and you might only need to add a few more things. It is somewhere heavy at just over 2 pounds but you should only need one of these in a group so someone who isn't carrying other group stuff can easily carry it.
Wound Care/Burn/Blister pouch
There is another pouch behind the clear ones that holds quite a few supplies and really the bulk of the kit.

Everyone needs one
Everyone needs a First Aid Kit and this is a good one to have. I think the only thing I've ever used it for was a band-aid, so I can't speak to the actual use of anything else in the kit. It all appears to be quality. Great buy, especially if you can pick it up on steepandcheap.
