I have always lived by the mantra that it is better to be safe then sorry... but with this medpack if you end up sorry at least you can sort it out ok! Plus it's so light that you can always keep it with you!
I have the older version, but it's still going strong. I've obviously used some stuff up, like the moleskin and med tape... but luckily I haven't had to use most of the more serious stuff but the pack is easily refillable with things you can buy at the store yourself (don't let them trick you into buying their overpriced refills). I'v also added some things like a small bottle of ibuprofen, gold bond power, safety pins, anti-diarrhea pills, and some extra bandaids. I use those things specifically all the time, and i'm always the person who has a bandaid on hand when someone scrapes up their fingers or something.
The waterproof bag on the old one was crap, ripped like the second time I tried to close it, but this was fixed easily enough by replacing it with a durable freezer ziploc bag. It looks like they might have updated the design of the waterproof bag for this new one anyways.
If you aren't already carrying a MedPack I would certainly suggest this one, it's great for 1-2 people, so either make sure everyone in the group has there own, or maybe look at something bigger.
I'm an ex wilderness EMT and current medical student and this is the kit I always have on me. If I'm out with the family or a large group I bring something more, but going solo or with competent friends this is it. I will even throw it in the pack around town for those bike vs cab road rashes or dealing with the random subway first responder situation.
It's a great little package with room for extras. I added a pair of small trauma shears, a couple single use superglue tubes, a very small spray bottle of hand sanitizer and another of deet, an extra set of gloves a couple sugar and re-hydration packets, a couple packets of sting-ease, two yards of duct tape and a mini bic lighter. There is more than enough room, and the whole thing weighs in at under 8 oz. Not bad for a kit that can fit in my pocket and handle any common situation.
at less than 5oz, this kit comes with an extensive array of items to address the typical wound care, medication, and blister needs. The kit comes with a superlight rip-stop like zippered bag, and a dryflex waterproof zip lock bag inside that tolds all the items. The zippered bag is big enough to also hold AM's pocket survival pak and a Gerber Ultralight LST Knife, and some rubber bands. All together, they make my survival kit. The items seem to be all of high quality.
this is a minimum kit with bare bones. plan to supplement it with more stuff but it also is a necessity. downside is that the kit is so small that plan to pull everything out then search for the needed item. Otherwise, buy one and get a larger kit for your base station with more advanced care items. This is absolutely perfect for a day hike other small adventure.
I added sting wipes, moleskin, and more band-aid sizes.
This is a great light addition to your pack for day backcountry split/ski touring. It's ultra-light, takes up next to no room and is waterproof so the contents don't get damp from condensation. The only thing I add is finger/thumb splints. You could probably stuff it in the inside pocket of a ski shell if you really wanted to.
