What's in an Ultralight first aid kit?
Well, I'm glad you asked…
My first aid kit weighs about 3.2 oz.. Its assembled from various bits and peices and everything is kept together in a zip loc sandwich bag.
Typically I buy bulk sachets of small amounts from First Aid Product.com.
I keep some patches – to fix up a burst Platypus and to fix up a punctured Thermarest. Just in case.
I also carry other small items in this bag – the tooth brushes and MicroPUR tablets.
Here are the contents of the kit:
- Moleskin Patches (12)
- Second Skin Patch
- Safety Pin
- Dental Floss
- Hydrocortizone Cream (3)
- Burn Gel (3)
- First aid ointment (3)
- Sting Releif (3)
- Alchohol Pads (3)
- Bandaids (10)
- Platypus repair patches (2)
- Bicycle tube repair patches (2)
- Ibruprofen (6)
- Tylenol (6)
- Butterfly Enclosures (2)
- Emergency Matches (2)
- Regular Matches Dipped in Wax (2)
- First aid tape (1)
And here is an exploded picture of the contents:
