Incrediwear Knee Sleeve

The best knee brace I have found for my particular aches and injuries. It feels good worn all day, doesn’t get too hot, and provides ample support for hiking and backpacking, as well as therapeutic fabric to aid blood flow and healing. My only real negative is it takes a while to dry, likely due to some minor cotton content. Waiver – since this is a medical device, albeit over the counter, I would like to clearly state that you should consult with a doctor regarding any injuries, the use of… Full review

PROcure Epsom Salt Rub

An easy to use spot treatment for sore muscles. Mixed with aloe, it is non-greasy and odorless. When I received a sample of the PROcure Epsom Salt Rub, my first thought was this is another product making dubious claims without any science behind it. While I had certainly taken Epsom salt laden baths in the past for aches and sore muscles it just seemed a stretch for it to work as a topical product.  After using the rub for several months for a variety of muscle pains I became a believer. While… Full review

Compeed

This blister treatment works like a dream to protect and heal any blister. They are not as effective when walking with wet feet or swimming while they are still on. In those circumstances it is best to add a waterproof covering over the Compeed. For long hikes, more than a day, I always carry a good supply. I have used these on many hikes where extended walking time has resulted in even well worn in boots rubbing a bit. They provide a good cover across the whole blister and have different sizes… Full review

Compeed

A self-adhesive blister prevention/treatment that also works for calluses and corns. More expensive than Moleskin for blister prevention, but about as good as it gets for treatment of open blisters. I'd recommend having a few of these along when breaking in new boots or in the first aid kit on longer hikes and ski tours. Great stuff. For the first half of the backountry ski season this year I had something funny going on with my right little toe — it would start hurting like hell after a few hours… Full review

Sawyer Extractor Pump Kit

The Sawyer Extractor Suction Pump Kit is NOT an effective first aid device for treating the effects of snake envenomation. As a zoo professional-herpetology for 30 years I am familiar with first aid protocol and treatment for viperid and elapid envenomation in a captive setting. Until recently the Sawyer Extractor Suction Pump Kit was considered an effective first aid device for treating the victim of snake envenomation and was standard equipment in most zoo reptile houses/exhibits. No studies… Full review

Tick Key The Tick Key

This product is great way to remove ticks if prevention falls. It is painless and helps reduce disease transmission by reducing the chance a tick will regurgitate. You can even use it on your pets. Gear Review: Liberty Mountain Tick Key For today’s post, I will do our first gear review. The piece of equipment under review is the Tick Key by Liberty Mountain, which has become an important tool for both BeeGee and me. This tool is one our essential pieces and always goes with us in our first aid… Full review

Sawyer Extractor Pump Kit

This is the only proven snake bite kit on the market!!! This is a very nice kit for stings and snake bites. It is the only one proven successful on the market. The others are dangerous. The Sawyer only pumps the wound/bite area. The others use old school methods that do worse than good, like cutting the bite area and using a tourniquet. This is very dangerous. This kit comes with everything to clean/sanitize the area, razor to shave hair in area, and a powerful pump to draw out venom/poison with… Full review

3M Cavit Temporary Filling

In short, this is the best industry standard for a temporary filling if a tooth breaks when out and about. This may not be ideal for many (I'm a WFR and backcountry guide), but this is always in my 1st Aid Kit that goes everywhere I go. This is a necessary part of a kit if you are a care provider in the backcountry. This stuff comes out of the tube like a putty, and is very easy to work with. Simply roll the product into a ball after prepping/cleaning, and press into the broken area. It is not… Full review
