First Aid Kits
A printable list of First Aid Items is available in PDF and Word at the links below.
These items can be put in small zip loc bags (there is a "snack size" zip loc that is very handy for individual items) and then into a larger, heavier (freezer weight) zip loc bag. This makes the first aid kit water proof and easy to see items inside. Use two if it works better for packing purposes. Also make a very small mini essentials 1st aid kit to put in your Fanny Pack that will be with you at all times when you are out of camp – in case you get separated from your saddlebags or your group. The ingredients fore these are available in the Trading Post.
