A lot of care in a small package.

Very Portable Kit
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This kit has what you need for basic first aid needs and can go pretty much anywhere with you. It should take care of most cuts, bruises, and sprains that an outdoor trip can throw at you. It is roughly the same size of a nalgene and has room to put a little more in it. I've added some extra standard ban-aids, some more alcohol swabs, and some more gauze which all fit easily.
Excellent Lightweight Kit
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have had this kit for a little while now and its great! Its not too heavy at under a half pound. My scale weighed it at 6.5 ounces. There is a little bit of everything in here. Take a look at my video below reviewing the kit to find out exactly what this kit includes.
A fairly complete kit.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I haven't had the need to actually use any of the components but this is one of the better put together kits I've seen. It is truly ultralight and watertight. I even let it roll around a bit in the crashing waves on a lakeshore and found everything inside to be 100% dry. This is a very packable size kit as well.
This kit is so lightweight yet contains so much. Great waterproof bag, well thought out. Makes it easy to throw in the pack/yak/car for every outing. Get one
More room to spare
You can hold this and them some in the outer bag. If you are not concerned about blisters you can swap it out for AMK's wound closure kit. Or you can add anything else you need to take, like prescription meds.
Lightweight with room to spare
The Ultralight .7 with AMK's Blister Medic. It all fits in the outer bag.
Great UL kit
I have seen some people complain about this kit (and the .9 and .5) not having any organization and things of that sort. Well I guess they don't understand that this is an ULTRALIGHT first aid kit. with all UL equipment you won't have any nice features like pockets for organizing supplies or anything like that. If you want organization you should look into AMK's Mountain Series. This kit is for someone who wants to have a nicely stocked first aid kit but doesn't want unnecessary weight from it. This is not a first aid kit to keep in your car this is a kit to put in your pack.
There is extra room to add some things that might have been overlooked. I have seen a few people mentioned adding more things for blisters. With this kit there is room to throw in AMK's Blister Medic into the outer bag. The advantage of this is all your blister treatment things are right at hand in a bag so you can just pull out the blister stuff(adding a little organization). There isn't too much extra room though, for example you won't be able to add a SAM splint but you can easily improvise splints in the backcountry.
Overall this is a great kit for people who want a light weight kit that still has all the essentials.
great kit for small adventures
this kit is great for small adventures but is in-between sizes so it has some things but not a lot of other necessities. we have both the .5 and .7 along with a larger kit. I personnally like to have many kits that I can store in multiple locations to access quickly so buying this is more of an insurance policy. we added additional band-aids and some moleskin and more alcohol wipes. be prepared to do that but one gets a great start by getting one of these bags. this is worth the price if you are out and about and have kids.

good but get the .9
good basic kit. I thought the .9 would be too big but now wish that I got it instead. I like to put other non medical items in the water proof bag so a bigger bag would have been handy for me.
Great little kit
I got this to throw in my ski pack its great, its got most of the essentials and doesn't take up a lot of room.
Essential piece of gear.
Great little kit perfect for day to multiday adventures. The kit has everything you need in a water tight package.
