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.
