Do You Carry a First Aid Kit?

Heading outdoors for a hunt in the backcountry has the potential for injuries and illnesses. With that in mind, Adventure Medical Kits has created a line of First Aid kits that covers everything from wound cleaning to fracture stabilizing. The Sportsman Series, which range from the $25.00 Steelhead Kit to the $125.00 Grizzly Pack, provide all you need for common and uncommon issues that arise in the outdoors.

We’ve tried out the Bighorn Kit. It is designed for groups of 1-7 people who plan on being out for several days. Adventure Medical Kits has packed wound-cleaning supplies, bandages and dressings, medications, blister and burn treatments, and fracture/sprain treatments into the Bighorn Kit and managed to keep the weight at a minimal 1 lb. 7 oz. A removable Field Trauma kit allows us to leave the main kit at our base camp and just take the lightweight, waterproof field trauma kit with us. QuikClot, trauma pads, and triangular bandages are stocked in this detachable kit to cover the most common hunting and fishing injuries.

Clear zippered compartments make finding the right supplies easy and quick.

  • CPR mask
  • Irrigation syringe and wound closure stips
  • QuikClot self-adhering bandages
  • Removable Field Trauma Pak
  • Wraps and bandages
  • Moleskin
  • EMT shears and precision forceps
  • Comprehensive Guide to Wilderness and Travel Medicine

We like to keep a medical kit in each car we own and one with our hunting gear. Adventure Medical Kits makes this easy by packaging medical supplies for different uses. Whether you are hunting and fishing in the backcountry, rock climbing, off-roading, attending summer camp, or exploring the urban outdoors, there is a kit specifically designed for the potential injuries that may occur. There is even a medical kit for your faithful dog.
