The Adventure Mountain Hiker Medical Kit is the smallest comprehensive first aid kit offered by Adventure Medical Kits. It is stocked with enough items to address the common first aid needs of up to 2 people who are out on adventures spanning not more than 2 days. The kit has the essentials needed to treat everything from small/basic wound care, burns and blisters, cuts and scrapes, medication, and supplies to help stop bleeding fast and even includes a handbook to wilderness first aid for reference purposes. What we love about the Hiker is how well-organized it is: all the supplies are organized into clearly-labeled, injury-specific compartments under the Easy Care™ Organization System, making it easy to find what you need quickly.
Comprehensive yet compact, the Mountain Hiker kit is a lightweight addition to your bikepacking gear that prepares you and a friend for whatever you may experience during a weekend on the trail.
