Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well thought out kit This is a great all around kit with plenty of room in the package to add more. I've added a magnesium firestarter and tinder, waterproof matches and container, 2 hand warmers, needle and thread, water purifier, and a bit of repair string to the interior of the silnylon bag. Then liquid skin, more ibuprofin, moleskin, bandages, and a bunch more tinctures and wipes to the water proof interior bag. I use this for every adventure, from day hikes with my children to weekends backpacking solo. Has come in very handy after sending a stick deep into my heel on the morning of a 5 hour hike out of a canyon with a 45lb pack. Get one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but NOT waterproof/watertight This is a great lightweight medical kit, but it is NOT waterproof. Water-resistant, yes; waterproof, no. I took this kit on a half-day canyoning trip that involved some swimming/plunges. Back at home, during my usual gear inspection, I noticed there was water inside the inner-most bag. Not a little bit, either -- most of the items were soaked. I had not previously opened the inner-most bag either. REI was kind enough to replace the kit, but for anything involving more than a light splash, I will be double-bagging this in a dry sack or similar. I recommend you do the same.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good kit, but too tight a fit It's a perfect little kit, very handy to have with good content. However, the "two shell" design is not at all ideal. Trying to get the inner (plastic) pouch inside the outer shell requires quite a bit of bending and folding of the crucial zip-loc seam - which can cause it to "pop open" in the process. In fact, even the manufacturer has the problem - the product arrived with the zip-loc seal popped open (I'm glad I checked!). If only the opening of the outer shell was about 1/4" wider, then the plastic pouch could be accessed much more conveniently and without risking a leak or tearing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not so great I bought this kit to use for day hikes. Although the kit does have just about everything you could need or use, I do not like the packing of the kit. It has a waterproof bag inside the kit housing the supplies that is a pain to get out of the bag. In an emergency I would hate to be fumbling with the medical kit. Maybe if they moved the zipper to the side and gave it a bigger opening It would suffice. For me onto finding a new day kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MUST HAVE This is a must-have kit for day hikes and backpacking. Covers the essentials of wound care: clean, disinfect, and cover to get people on their way and get true medical care later if they need it. Over the years, I traded out the sting-care and motrin for large band aids, steri-strips, moleskin, gauze pads and a pair of latex gloves. Thankfully, I've only needed it to help other families whose child fell down and went boom. Kid slipped on something, is scuffed up and crying, and the parents are freaking out because they don't have what they need. Happens all the time, and with this kit, one can help out with road-rash or a cut. On multi-day hikes I toss in some extra everything and it's good to go. The waterproof sack may seem like over-kill and makes the kit a little spendy, but this is something you can't suddenly need and then find out it's wet and unusable. It's worth every cent.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very hard to open/close Nice selection of products, and they seem to be good quality. But the package is a really bad design. I always struggle to fit the plastic zippered pouch inside the outer pouch. The zipper just needs to be 1/2" longer, and this wouldn't be a problem. As it is, you have to be careful because sometimes when scrunching the plastic ziplock to fit, the seal comes open, leaving it exposed to water. This is probably what happened to the other reviewer, who said it wasn't waterproof.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, very handy I bought this kit with the intention of never needing it, but unfortunately, I did have to bust it out just about every day of my recent 5-day hike. It came in handy for the blisters I was plagued with (new boots are my next big purchase), the cut on my foot from one toenail slicing another toe (again...those boots were not the ones I needed!), and for the bee sting I got later on the trail (first of my life! Who knew those hurt so much?!). Glad I had this along, will definitely be replenishing before the next trip. I would suggest adding a few additional large Bandaids (or similar) if you can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very complete and trustworthy kit. I got this kit to replace my bulky/heavy homemade one. I was very happy with it. First off, the tough waterproof bag is awesome, and gives you security knowing your lifeline supplies are safe from the elements. The kit overall is super lightweight and compact, and fits just about anywhere. It has a nice combination of bandages, gauze, wrappings, medications, and the like. I did do a bit of customizing to it, though. I took out the super-thin medical tape and replaced it with a small roll of duct tape. I also added an extra backpack belt buckle, some needles and dental floss, and a couple of gas-x strips. This is a great product that has just what you need in a personal first-aid kit.
