Wednesday, October 14, 2015 General Purpose First Aid Kit

Today we are taking a look at the General Purpose First Aid Kit.  I picked this up to replenish my supplies and to see if it was worth the $25.

  1. Any good first aid kit is worth the money for someone who might be a beginning camper and doesn't have any supplies. As for myself, I know my weak points, which will be blisters around my ankles, maybe a campfire burn, and scrapes for when I'm bushwhacking. Therefore, I need more bandages than most. I use isopropyl alcohol as fuel so I always have plenty of it, no need for the pads. Hand soap and scissors are in my toiletries set. The one item I use that always seem to be light in these sets is gloves, I carry two sets. I seem to be the one called on (because I am usually the one prepared) when someone else is injured. I won't be touching someone else's injury with bare hands. I notice they set included a pill bottle. If one has more than one type of pill that bottle will be useless, and the pills knocking around will be annoying. A better option would be a set of 10 or so grip seal button bags that can be marked.
