First aid kits and supplies

First aid kits and supplies to prepare you for the unexpected

It's hard to anticipate everything that might happen away from home. A loose rock on the ascent, a nasty bug on the trail or a close call by the campfire – accidents happen, and being prepared could be the difference between cutting your trip short or moving ahead with your day as planned.

First aid kits come in all shapes and sizes, from a set of single-day essentials to emergency trauma response supplies for your most serious mountaineering expeditions. Adventure Medical Kits simplify the decision process, offering clear guidelines for how many people and how many days any given kit is designed to cover. Many kits also include basic information about wilderness first aid to help guide you in a pinch.

Want to make sure your first aid kit carries exactly what you want without the extras? Look for ready-to-fill first aid bags with dry storage and high visibility options, plus all the pockets you need to keep your first aid supplies organized exactly how you want them. For tick removal and blister treatment check out Coghlan’s or Lifesystems. Pro-tec Athletics has great preventative options like joint sleeves and wraps to make sure you’re ready to perform at your best.
