The biggest kit in the world won't make a difference if it's sitting in camp while you're in the field. The Field Trauma kit is designed to be small enough to stash into a daypack while equipping you with the supplies and information to venture 1-2 days away from your base. The included bandages, dressings, and medication enable you to stop the bleeding, stabilize the fracture or sprain, and keep the patient comfortable while you make your way back to camp or await rescue.
-Antiseptic wipes and butterfly bandages for closing small wounds.
-Petrolatum gauze promotes healing and doesn't adhere to deep puncture wounds.

-A wide array of medications to treat pain, inflammation, and common allergies.
-Nitrile examination gloves plus biohazard disposal bag.
-Hospital-quality tools, including EMT Shears and precision forceps set the standard for backcountry medical care.
