Description

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.

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.

a must have

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

luckily I have not had to use this yet out on the trail, but I take it every time.
Its got everything you might need.

Would this be a good ski touring first aid kit?

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.

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

I 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.

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.
