Just as with the large Camping First Aid kit from Surviveware, I’m looking to get your feedback on this product; be honest with what you see; what you like, what you dislike.  Get your cup of coffee, a cold beer and get ready to comment!

This is the Surviveware Hiking and Backpacking First Aid Kit.

Price : $35
Weight : 1lb

Not long ago I took a look at the Large Camping First Aid kit from Surviveware and mentioned that the company had a smaller version for hiking and backpacking and that I would try to get my hands on it.  I was successful in that regards so it is time to take a look at it together.

600D Polyester

stainless steel scissors can cut through clothing or seat belts.

100 items.

measures 5.5 x 7.5 x 3.5"

All inner items are protected from water in durable zip-top laminate baggies.

Each inner sleeve is labeled according to its function. During stressful situations, all items can found and used. Afterwards all supplies can be replaced in an orderly fashion.

6” Shears(1), 600D Polyester Bag(1), Alcohol Wipes(3), Antiseptic Wipes(4), Adhesive Bandages: Butterfly Closures(5), Butterfly(5), H-Shape(5), Large(2), Standard (20), Mini(5), Square Shape(5), Cotton Gauze Swab(3), Cotton Swabs(10), CPR Pouch with Instructions(1), CPR Breathing Mask(1), Crepe Bandage(1), Emergency Blanket(1), Eye Pads(2), Hypoallergenic Tape(1), Nitrile Gloves(1), Personal Medicine Laminate Bag(1), Personal Medicine Mini Bags(5), PBT Conforming Bandage(1), Safety Pins(4), Splinter Probes(2), Strip Wound Closures(3), Sting Relief Wipes(3), Basic Tourniquet(1), Triangular Bandage(1),Tweezer(1), Whistle(1)


Pros :

I like the design of the case and the quality of the overall kit for the money.
Everything is laid out in a logical way.
I firmly believe that one should piece their own kit but this is a based to build from.
While larger than my personal first aid kit which I carry; I go minimalistic;
It’s not overly huge or heavy.
Room left over for your own additions; Israeli bandage

Cons :

Tourniquet is simply ok and if you are going to carry one, carry one that is better than this.  A TK4 would fit perfectly in this.  This in my opinion wouldn’t cover major arterial bleedings.  I would rather the company not include one at all so that people who are buying this don’t think that they are covered.  In other words, false sense of security.

missing antiseptics and antibiotic ointments, moleskin, clotting agent,
