Save your money and put your own kit together.
- Everything for one price
- 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.
