I've never had a blister while hiking, but my son did get a hotspot on his pinky toe while hiking Mt. St. Helens. I applied one of these to his toe and he completed the hike up to the rim and back to the trailhead and the following day he reapplied a skin to the spot and hiked the entire length of the Ape Caves. I always keep a package in my pack, the day I stop carrying them will be the day I need them. Cheap insurance.
i've seen great hikes gone bad by people who suffer from blisters. moleskin is the answer -just slap the appropriate size piece right on your foot, and boom, you're good to go. i consider this a must for any backpacking trip or hike of length. even if you don't get blisters, they are handy for new hikers in your party, or people with new boots that came unprepared. great product.
AMK's pre cut moleskin makes it very fast and easy to apply moleskin to hot spots and blisters. They have enough different shapes so you can easily find the one that will work best for any blister. I always carry a little tincture of benzoin with me so when the adhesive starts to get weak I add a little benzoin and it extends the life of the moleskin.
I tried wearing a new pair of boots right out of the box on a 14 mile hike, based on the claim that this particular boot required no break in period. After this claim didn't hold up after only a mile in, and hot spots started on my heels and ankles, I used this kit and finished the hike with no further problems.
This is one of those items that is crucial to have in your med kit but be careful as those less prepared will need to use it. this kit is an all in one kit. Add small alcohol wipes and plain cleansing wipes for a complete kit.
If you backpack and don't have this in your first-aid kit... It's time to add them. Every backpacker knows how important your feet are and these little sucker let you "keep walking." Buy them once and you'll never not have them. Happy Hiking!
Moleskin is essential for backpacks of any length. Blisters can ruin a hike real quick. This pack contains pre-cut forms of different sizes, which allows you to just slap it on and get back on the trail quick and pain free!
These are great, I haven't had any issues with the this moleskin kit. I feel like the adhesive preforms well, I love the pre-cut shapes and sizes, makes it super easy. I always keep this kit in my pack!
What a relief - one of these medium patches saved my whole trip! I only bring a couple of these with me, not the whole pack, and between those and some Hydropel, my feet have never been happier.
Great buy for your feet. Took it as a precaution on a backpacking trip and became my best friend after ending up with three blisters. Nice price and the different sizes and shapes are nice.
People are giving this great reviews but in my opinion this stuff sucks! I am not a first time user of Moleskin either. This may work for cruising the trail but when I primarily use this stuff it is for hunting and there are no trails straight up bushwacking and lots of it. The pre-cut patterns are lame and the material it self is weak compared to others; i.e. Dr Scholl's. It is far more advantageous to cut your own patterns and buy the real deal. Do yourself a favor pass on this and get the good stuff.
Another product that promises greatness and falls short. Moleskin is just too thick and bulky to adequately function while in a boot or shoe. I'd recommend a good couple layers of Duct Tape (High thread count) over this any day.
Good only if you run out of Duct Tape...
As others have said... meh. It does the job adequately, but I'm not super impressed. There are definitely better performing moleskins out there.
