Easily fits in a Osprey "Raven" 14
Leaves plenty of room for other essentials. (Osprey "Raptor" 14 is the same basic size); perfect size for cycling hydration packs, especially mtn. biking.
Now You See It...
Not as large as it seems in this pic. (just have it flattened out for detail).
Perfect for Cycling Packs!
Easily fits in my Osprey Raven 14 hydration pack, with room to spare! Light weight; no reason not to carry it!
Great starter kit
This is a pretty comprehensive kit with room to customize the contents as needed. The kit consists of two zip-lock type bags of supplies inside the yellow pouch. Each bag has space for a couple small items, and there's also plenty of space in the yellow bag to add a couple of things. Everyone has their own minor preferences for what's in their kit, but this is a great size for day trips to short overnights, and has a great selection of supplies to get you started
Just in Case
- Gender: Female
Wanted a well-rounded kit primarily for cycling, and light hiking; and while I was going to go with the larger kit (will still get that one for longer excursions), I am glad I listened to some reviewers regarding the other kit vs. this one for cycling: the other would have been way overkill and too big/heavy for that done-in-a-day or 2 cycling! This one is perfect, even still a bit large, but it does fit in my pack (using a Osprey Raven 14), with room to spare for other essentials. Would rather be a bit over-prepared, than not. Also added the "QuikClot", and will tweak some; adding some eye drops; charcoal tablets, good for taking internally for all sorts of problems, and, can also be pulverized to make a poultice to help draw out toxins (good mixed with Goldenseal extract and applied topically), etc. till you can get med. help if still needed; and a small magnifier glass, which can packed in kit, keeping it handy. RECOMMEND this .9* size, and no larger for the "weekend- warrior" cyclist'!
As a certified EMT I felt it was necessary to be prepared if anything ever went wrong in the field. This is a great size med kit. It has most everything you would need for day trips. For longer overnight trips I added some items. I recently went on a yurt trip where almost everyone needed some mole skin, it was very nice to be prepared with the kit. This kit is easy to manipulate to be what you want it yo be. I have been rotating it between my ski pack and bike pack this spring and with the waterproof sacks inside you can piece it together however you like.
Peace of mind
Good selection but I added some more alcohol wipes, neosporin and vitamin I just to be safe.
I have and love the older version (2009)
This is a great first aid kit. I bought this several years ago for backpacking; but, due to it being compact and lightweight... I throw it in my pack anytime I'm biking, hiking, climbing etc. So far I have just used band-aids, moleskin and duct tape. Hopefully it stays that way; but, being small and compact, no excuse not to take it everywhere in case something bigger happens.
It appears to be the same as the older version. The only items I added were some other pills/medication and a quickclot. A quickclot was recommended to me and I recommend it as well.
Great lightweight first aid kit
Great lightweight first aid kit. It pretty much comes with everything you would need. Added a few things to personalize it, and there is enough room for those add ons. It's super lightweight, mine weighed 8.5 ounces. It packs small in the pack. And is great for where you might come into contact with water. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great lightweight first aid kit.
It has all the essentials and then some, plus a little room for add-ons. The container pouches seems sturdy, durable, and waterproof.
This is an awesome kit as a starter for a super lightweight, ready for anything kit. It has pretty much many of the basics that a decent first aid kit should have. In addition, I'm going to add at least 1 SAM splint, and a 35g packet of Celox to round out the kit. A good first aid kit is a vital aspect, and you should basically be prepared for anything when in the backcountry. The kit is actually a little lighter than is shown here, it weighs in at 8.4 ounces.
I'm looking for a kit for my bugout bag....
I'm looking for a kit for my bugout bag. So in the case I would need to use it It will be for a backcountry, solo trek for potentially a month long. I like that this kit is light and is pretty well rounded.
This kit does sound pretty well rounded. Better than most. Toss in a few roller bandages or BloodStoppers, maybe a cravat or two for slings, half a dozen sterile 4x4 gauze pads, a few more pills, and you'll be set. A small pair of paramedic's shears and a Sam-Splint also aren't bad things to have around.
I have this kit for cycling and light hiking...I think the A.M.K. Ultralight Pro would be the smallest kit you might want to consider, depending on how many people, and how long your excursion might be, especially for potentially a month...); plus, it includes the other items previously suggested.
Might also want to consider one of the other emergency kits (fire starter, mag. glass, small mirror, and other survival needs, add a emergency 'blanket(s)' of some sort, maybe some sort of solar charger; (and maybe brush-up on herbal medicines & local plant I.D., taking a survival course) then you can "bug-out" in confidence!
