First Aid Kit

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
  • Needle
  • 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:
