Backpacker First Aid Kit

Backpacker First Aid Kit – By NaturalFooted

At first glane the backpacker first aid kit is pretty impressive, but looks can be decieving. Luckly thats not the case here. Unzip one of the two tough zippers and you will discover that this is in fact an impressive first aid kit for backpackers.

One of my biggest gripes about first aid kits in general is that they tend to lack organization. Maybe its my mild OCD but having medcial supplies seperated into plastic bags and then trown into larger bag is not what I would call organization. The backpacker first aid kit by NaturalFooted looks as though is was designed by a backpacker with far worse OCD than myself.

There is a spot for everything is this first aid kit. It is so well organized and laid out that you would be hard pressed to unorganize it. There are a handfull of mesh elastic pockets for the larger, bulky items such as gauze, triangular badges, tape, etc. In the middle of the case you’ll find a clear pocket with a multitude of items attached to it. This liitle pocket hold all of your loose and smaller items such as band-aids, cotton balls, condoms, gloves, etc. Attached to the out side are a few pill bottles, paw paw salve, bug spray, tweezers, and some scissors. Lastly there are a few pocket organizers for large sterile pads and bigger ban-aids.
