My buddy is a trained medic and carries a comprehensive first aid kit on the trail when we are backpacking, so I just keep this small version on me as a backup, or to help out someone else. At three ounces, and for six bucks, it's a reasonable insurance policy, but as Dan mentioned, you should really have something more complete for any serious backcountry excursion.
I agree with the previous comments in that this kit is really only usable as a backup to a full kit.This product doesnt claim to be a full kit however and it is worth the money if you plan on supplementing it with Second-skins, lipbalm, and a mini tube of sunscreen. I was also able to fit a swiss army knife and some TP inside.
This kit does not have everything you will need for a serious wound or injury, but is great to have around to clean up small cuts and scrapes. Came in very handy on a backpacking trip in Central America.
This kit is only good for minor scrapes and cuts. If you're going to spend any length of time in the woods, you better bring more than this.
