Lives in my Daypack!

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I added a few more Ibuprofen to this, a photon micro, knife and bic mini, but otherwise perfect!
It lives in my daypack, and I keep a bigger kit it the car.


Nice little kit

    This med kit is the perfect size for 1-2 people and has everything I'll need for any minor first aid issues. Easy to add to, which I ended up adding some extra band-aids and sample packs of insect repellent. Nice to have everything in one place and in a watertight zip-lock.


    Decent set up

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    This will certainly get you through handling basic first aid tasks. Very compact. Nice little bag.


    Good for the basics

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

    A knowledge of backcountry first-aid really is a must if you're going to be out there. This kit is good for cuts and scrapes--the small stuff--and not much else. And that's fine. Not only is the small size what you primarily run into, but it's really the only stuff you can reasonably plan for.

    Make sure you have the knowledge to treat the big stuff in the field, and keep this little kit on hand for the little stuff.


    Good for backpacking.

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

    If you're trying to save space in your pack, this does just fine. I haven't needed to use any of the supplies, but I like that I feel prepared for an emergency without it being a pain to carry around.


    decent kit

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

    everything you could need for minor incidences - perfect for the novice 'nurse'


    Perfect Personal

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    This is the perfect personal sized first aid kit! It's very lightweight and compact-able. The bag is very durable, it's watertight to keep out any moisture. I use this kit for day hikes and short overnight trips, always good to have! Super cheap price! I have had to use the moleskins in my kit, they are precut for easy use.


    Great personal FAK

      This is great for a personal kit. I take it on day hikes and group backpacking trips. I like to split up communal gear so in a group of 3-4 one would carry the tent, one would carry the cooking gear, and one would carry a more comprehensive FAK suck and the AMK Comprehensive or Fundamentals kits. but then everyone should carry their own personal FAK for little things or if the one with the big FAK gets lost. This kit is nice and light weight and it is cheap enough so when you are running low on gear you can just buy a new kit since new equipment is more expensive. This is just a great little kit for one person if there is more equipment elsewhere in the group. I would recommend getting a bigger kit if you do a lot of longer (not day hike) solo trips though.

      Ultralight/Watertight .3 by Adventure Medical Kits

      AMK Co-Founder Frank Meyer breaks down the Ultralight / Watertight .3, a pocket-sized kit great for the ultralight athlete who needs first aid but prefers to measure gear in grams, not ounces.


      about as minimalist as I would want to go

        This is about as minimalist as I would ever want to go, and only as a backup plan for a dayhike. I take the .5 model along on the trail on dayhikes and when backpacking, but my buddy carries a complete kit with him, so mine is just in case...
