    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.

    What do you think about this product?

    Have questions about this product?

    So far, so good

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

    A good first aid kit is a must-have for any backcountry adventure. Regrettably I must admit that I went far too long without having one in my pack. Eventually I decided to quit depending on luck and invest in the Ultralight & Watertight .9. This kit is light on weight and heavy on functionality. I haven't had to use it yet, but I feel a lot better knowing I have it.

    Initial Impressions = Thumbs Up

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

    Thankfully I haven't had to dig into this Kit yet. I checked out the contents and it has all the basically you would need out on the river, on the trail, or sleeping under the stars. As Tyler mentioned, it has 2 dry bags so I may separate them and buy some additional first aid kit artillery and throw those in one bag and keep the original contents in the other. This will mostly sit in a boat and hopefully will not have to come in handy, but will come in handy...

    Not bad for the size

      I just unboxed mine and went through it. Since it has two drybags, I seperated the items into groups of "Ill use this often" and "If I'm using this, something bad happened" Bandaids and towelettes go into one side, irrigation needle, wraps, and tape into another.

      I do wish it came with a vial of saline for the irrigation needle though. Are we supposed to boil water and let cool as to not melt the syringe. Not really a time is of the essence thing. Ill probably end up taking that out.

      Great small kit

        Easy to pack and has the essentials for a day in the mountains. I supplement this kit with a sam splint and a quick clot just in case. I've used many of the included items in this kit and they are easy to access and sort through (luckily nothing serious!). I also take it on short weekend trips because it seems like with kids you'll always need a few extra band aids.

        Good all around little kit

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

        Pretty good kit. I would add a few more bandaids, a few more ibuprofen, and a couple other little things.. But great all around kit for mainly what you need in a first-aid kit.

        Awesome little kit

          just got this after realizing I'm usually way under prepared for most adventures I find myself doing. This contains some pretty cool essentials for an MTB ride or hike not to far from the car (2-4 hrs)...



          Great packaging (waterproofing is nice), super lightweight/compact...would be easy to carry in a MTB backpack/daypack.

          Great Kit

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          I picked up my first Adventure Medical Ultralight kit to keep in my backcountry skiing pack because of its light weight and excellent selection of supplies; it does not disappoint, although I have added some more pain killers and such. I'll be getting another to keep in my car for sure.

          Would this be a good ski touring first aid kit?

          Best Answer

          The Adventure Medical Ultralight & Watertight .9 First Aid Kit would definitely be a good set for augmenting any ski touring pack. Personally, I would add in some flint (extra if already included) in case you need to get some warmth out there as well as a space blanket or two. Throwing in a small mirror is another solid addition should the worst case scenario happen and you're needing to be found.



          Overall this kit has comes with everything you need to treating an injury in the field, but you can't go wrong adding a bit more in for added safety.

          Hey Robert,



          This would be great for a ski touring med kit. However, in ski touring, the chance for trauma is high, and you need to ask yourself how comfortable you are splinting a broken bone to move a patient. It may be better for you to consider a med kit that has a SAM splint like this one: http://www.backcountry.com/adventure-medical-ultralight-pro-first-aid-kit-amk0054?ti=U2VhcmNoIFJlc3VsdHM6c2FtIHNwbGludDoxOjE6c2FtIHNwbGludA&skid=AMK0054-KIT-ONSI



          Or look at adding a SAM splint to this one.

          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

          Noel,

          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!
