Worst-case scenarios averted.

The worst-case scenario is that you get hurt. Actually, the worst-case scenario is that you get hurt and don’t have a first aid kit with you because you thought it was too heavy to pack. No, wait; maybe the worst-case scenario is really that you get hurt, and you have your fist aid kit, but it is soaking wet and totally unusable because it wasn’t in a waterproof container. The Adventure Medical Ultralight & Watertight .9 First Aid is lightweight, packable, and uses a DryFlex liner to keep water out.

worth the buy

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have used this a few times, it has just about all the basics that you may need. I also like that the bag has enough room to add a few more Items, I like to add a few more meds and foot treatments. I have taken this on day hikes and also on week backpack adventures .

So far so good

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this kit to replace a very small one I've had for MANY years. The size is reasonable and just right for full day hikes or multi-day trips.

The kit comes with 2 bags of medical goodies inside the main pouch. Both bags have the same writing on them which tells you the contents of bags 1 and 2. The only bummer about that is that they both have the same text and they aren't labeled as bag 1 and 2, so you have to think about it for a second to know which bag to open. Not really a big deal though.

The only other minor complaint I have is that it doesn't come with very much quantity of the things you'll need most. For example, it comes with 2 packets each of 3 types of painkillers. The first time I used this kit was on a hike up Half Dome, where my friends quickly used up 3 of those 6 packets plus 1 of the 2 packets of Benadryl.

So, good kit. Good size. Make sure you stock up on the things you know you'll need.

Light and Versatile

This is definitely a great little kit. It's superlight and well stoked but has room for add-ons. In addition to what already comes in it, I would recommend adding some QuickClot, Carcoal tabs, Neosporin and possibly an emergency blanket.

I also really love the fact that it comes in a watertight pouch, definitely an important feature! Overall, this a great kit. I highly recommend it!

Ultralight and well-rounded

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is the first-aid kit I throw in my pack for ski touring, mt. biking or just hiking around in the summer. It has just about everything I need to cover smaller injuries and the waterproof packing can easily be reused once you need to restock or add your own items! The waterproof bags are awesome too! It kept my kit dry even when sailing through a soaking wet storm!

Ultralight series is the best for hikers

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used most of the ultralight series kits and they are all awesome. they are inexpensive compared to other kits so you can get different ones for different jobs. I usually carry the .9 when I go out on longer hikes with just me or a friend or two. I carry the .3 on short hikes with just me, or on a group hike where someone else is carrying a more comprehensive kit. I use the pro on bigger group trips. I keep a .7 in my school backpack so I always have a kit nearby. With them being so inexpensive if you have to use most of the contents in the kit you can just buy a new one. If you go to REI and get all of their refill kits it will cost you about $25. So it is just easier to get a whole new kit.
AMK kits always come well stocked you don't need to add too much unless you have personal issues that require medication or something. A few things that you should consider adding are more bandaids, more medications, some Quickclot and a SAM splint if you have room for one.
Bandaids and medication are the things you will most likely use from you kit and these kits don't come with that many.

I also added a SWAT-T to it.

Overall this kit is a great buy and if you plan on doing any hiking or biking this is the kit for you. It is very light weight and you will almost forget it is there.

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.

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'!

Be Prepared!

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.

This is the same kit I keep for skiing and mtb'ing. Good call Devin!

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.

As described

It has all the essentials and then some, plus a little room for add-ons. The container pouches seems sturdy, durable, and waterproof.

Great Kit!

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.

Responded on

What is this Celox; and where can I find the SAM splint everyone suggest? Looking for a good Mtn. bike kit, that I can also take on extended hikes. Thanks.

Responded on

Quikclot is another brand of clotting agent, and SAM splints should either be available here, or just search online.

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.
Any suggestions?

Best Answer Responded on


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!
