Great item to have just in case
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Hoping that I won't have to put this to good use. But I do feel prepared for unwanted situations. It is light and compact for how much come with the kit. There is space for personal things as well.
I am highly allergic to bees and I always seem to forget my EpiPen when I stumble upon a swarm of them. Now I have something to safely put the EpiPen and always have it when I am on an outdoor adventure.
Definitely recommend this to those going backpacking/camping/rock climbing. Any situation where you might find yourself in a jam and need to do some patching up before getting to a hospital for additional care.

I'm looking for a good well rounded and ready for any situation first aid kit for my '05 Nissan Xterra; Does anyone know the dimentions of this kit or any better kit that might fit the first aid kit stowage in an Xterra?
This kit measures 8.5x7x2.5" and I measured the Xterra's factory medical pouch that's stored in the back hatch, and it's about 7.5x14.5x3". If you want something that's ready to go, and has all that little stuff, this would do the trick and fit into the first-aid pouch from the Xterra, but it's not quite ready for any situation. You can do better. I've set up two kits in a couple Xterras of my own, and I've found that when I added some stuff that I based on what a wilderness medic or ski patroller would normally carry, then I had a well rounded and reasonably complete kit. I added a bunch of 2" roller bandages and a couple rolls of athletic tape, as many band-aids as would fit in that little vinyl sleeve, a few pairs of gloves, a set of airways, some bloodstoppers and a pile of 4x4" gauze pads, anti-microbial wipes, Epi-Pen, forceps, paramedic's shears, a Sam Splint, a non-rebreather mask, sutures, and a sharp folding knife. This kit is going to give you a good base for all the regular supplies, but I could never find any kits that had the more trauma oriented stuff that I know from some experience was a good idea to carry. A few of the items definitely require some training to use, but it's all there in case I need it. For most of the pills and meds that come with this kit, you can also get some ibuprofen, aspirin, pain killers and an antihistamine like benadryl for milder allergic reactions. A tube of glucose or a bunch of Gu packets never hurt either. Anyway, hope that helped
