The camping gear we rent can keep you protected from the elements, but things can happen to you even with perfect gear. Whether you create your own first-aid kit from supplies from home, or take a ready-made one such as this, just be sure to take something to patch yourself up when on the trail. It's not just a quick drive to the walk-in clinic when you're out hiking 10 miles from the nearest road. A simple cut, blister or burn is much more problematic when out in the woods, so be prepared for at least some basic protection. And rest assured, something will happen - you'll get attacked by a thorn bush; bang your shin on a rock; irritate a wasp; or get eaten by a bear. This little pack can help with 3 out of every 4 problems.
We like this kit because it covers the basics and only weighs in at 3 ounces. Included are butterfly closure strips, antibiotic ointment, anesthetic /antiseptic towelettes, moleskin, sterile dressing, adhesive tape, other bandages, Ibuprofen, antihistamine, safety pins and a few other miscellaneous items. Hint- add a few Imodium pills, your insurance card, and a note listing any allergies and medications you're on to this list. Pack any daily prescription medications - enough for more days than you plan to be out - in a single waterproof container. The best protection against hurt - watch where you step; watch where you put your hands; wash hands frequently; be aware of what's around you. This is a purchased item, not a rental, so yours to keep. Keep handy in your car when not out on the trail.
