Lifesystems Mountain First Aid Kit
Essential bit of kit but some obvious deficiencies
As a former military first aid and outdoor persuits instructor who always carried a first aid kit three times as big as this I thought I would treat myself to a ready filled kit instead of spending hours at the pharmacy making up my own. I found the bag is probably not waterproof so would have to be inside a sack and therefore not immediately accessible, it has now way of attaching it to a belt or the extrior of a sack. Despite it purports to be a Mountain First Aid Kit frankly the contents are little more than can be bought for a fraction of the price as a home first aid kit or even a vehicle kit. To add insult to injury (pun intended) there was only one blister plaster (unforgiveable) and not enough reasonable sized safety pins to secure the bandages. Sorry guys but for the price I expected much better for a 'Mountain First Aid Kit". However, if you have nothing else I suppose this is useable for a few basic injuries.
