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.

Here's what others have to say...

Would this be a good ski touring first aid kit?

Best Answer Responded on

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.

Light and Versatile

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

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.
