Summary

Save your money and put your own kit together.

Pros

  • Compact
  • Light
  • Everything for one price

Cons

  • Almost wothless

After taking a wilderness first aid course I decided to put together a backcountry first aid kit. This seemed like it could be the core of a lightweight kit. There were some antiseptic wipes and alcohol swabs, which were nice but there were also a few packets of typical medicine cabinet drugs that were near expiration.

There were low-end adhesive bandages that are next to worthless as they won't stay on. Worst of all was the moleskin, pre cut — hope your blister comes in a standard size — thinner than any I've ever seen and with almost no adhesive.

This is a good idea, but to keep the cost point low the items are worse than useless. They give a false sense of security only to find that nothing really works. Put your own kit together with quality items.

Good to know. I make my own kit, but I've thought about buying one of these.
