Adventure Medical Kits Weekender
Price Paid: $35
This kit has everything you would need short of behind the counter medicines. The kit is sectioned with pockets for the various medical emergencies. For example, open wounds has its own pocket. Some items are found twice in different pockets, because some emergencies require the same item-clever.
The book on various emergencies is a good read and quite extensive. The CPR part is a good refresher. The various tool items are good quality and cover the majority of emergencies. There is enough room to add more stuff (I added a small survival knife for backup and dedicated tick remover). The splinter remover is also good quality and can remove ticks.
The whole kit folds up and fits perfectly in my camelbak. The kit lives up to its name-weekender.
