Like to go light? Cut corners, but don't cut the cut-curing kit. Get the Ultralight .7 instead.

Awesome lightweight kit. It's got almost everything you need in a really nice compact package
A must for the core backpacker!
So I've already recommended that you get a, "Adventure Medical QuikClot Sport Silver Clotting Sponge" (item #AMK0101) & this, "Adventure Medical Ultralight & Watertight .7 First Aid Kit" is even more of a must have in the backcountry! Seriously people, you have room for your candy, rum & green stuff (I meant blueberries)...so how the hell can you look in the mirror before a big backpacking trip when you don't own one of these? You bring a stupid camera along, but no medical kit? What's your problem, it weighs nothing & it could save your life. I was pissed yesterday in the Uintas when I started sneezing a bunch & didn't remember my allergy medication, but guess what? This kit had some antihistamine right there...don't be a douche-canoe, buy one & feel safe (safer, sorry) in the backcountry! :)
This kit has everything you need for a short day trip hike in the woods, to a several day long backcountry excursion. I carry this thing pretty much everywhere, in my truck on when I travel, or in my bag when I'm hiking out backcountry touring. I have had to use it on many occasions, but the equipment is pretty easy to replace, except for a few items, that I would just replace the whole kit if I had the need to use them.
light weight, everything you need for a daytrip or weekend
this has everything you will need for a day or weekend trip. i would suggest going a little bigger for a multi day tour. the case is really lightweight but is tough enough to take some crashing and banging in your pack.
I have now used this kit for a few things and so far everything is great. The best piece of the kit might be the tweezers which worked great for getting a nasty splinter out.
Great Personal Aid Kit
I carry one of these kits when I go on short/overnight trips. It also has some items that make it useful in the concrete jungle, so I got a second one to carry in my truck. The fact that it's waterproof was definitely a plus when deciding which kit to choose.
