Excellent kit for outdoor.

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

This kit is very light and contains essential gear.
Also this has great waterproof bag, well tightened zip and makes it easy to throw in the pack and car for every outdoor activity.

There when you need it

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this initially for just kayaking, but soon took it just about everywhere with me. Its been kayaking, backpacking, at the beach, in my truck for a while, and then just this past week I had to use it camping. I sliced halfway into my thumb with a filet knife and immediately ran for this, once I got the bleeding stopped the duct tape and cloture strips made sure the rest of my week of camping didn't entail a hospital visit. The duct tape is really a well thought out addition. The only thing I added were a couple packs of matches and some Aleve and now it's perfect!

Awesome kit- easy to pack

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I just used one of these kits during an expedition to Greenland- it was super lightweight and easy to fit (to the point that I sometimes forgot where I had stored it in my pack.

Has all the necessities and some great options for dealing with blisters.

Ski, Bike, & Hike

I picked up this first aid kit to stash in my packs while backcountry skiing, biking, and hiking. Very happy with the size/weight, selection, and price. If this one's too big or too small for you needs, be sure to check out Adventure Medical's other products as they have great variety of kits.

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.

Thanks. Just what I was looking for... excellent video!

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.

Perfect

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

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.

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.

Responded on

I agree. I have the .9 and it fits perfectly in my Osprey Raven 14 pack; leaving plenty of room for other essentials. It has lot to offer, and room in the kit for additions.
Was going to go for the larger kit, but this will suffice for mtn. biking and short hiking excursions, with some up-grades.
