My Medic MedPack

Compact resealable bag contains the basics for a first aid kit plus a few more items to really cover all the bases. There are just a few of each item so you aren’t carrying too big a kit.

The usual first aid items for handling bleeding and burns are included: gauze pads, bandages, creams, ointments, antiseptic wipes, medications.

The pack also includes a small space blanket, 20′ of paracord, and a small whistle in case the injured needs to stay put and call for help.

Nice additions are sunscreen and lip balm packets plus two electrolyte tablets which I haven’t encountered in a kit before (at first I wondered why the pack smelled faintly of grape…).

Solemates Blister Blocker

Small fits anywhere tube of balm to prevent blisters or chafing. Made with natural ingredients and is fragrance and paraben free.

I often use Foot Glide and am curious to see how this compares.

Jali Dried Fruit

Sun-dried fruit that is wild harvested with no added preservatives or sugar. Bonus warm-n-fuzzies: Jali Fruit Co. works with women farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean to helps transform food waste into opportunity.

I seldom think to pack dried fruit for hikes even though we enjoy it but last month’s Cairn had Patagonia Provisions Chile Mango which was quite tasty. And now we’re looking forward to trying this dried pineapple. Especially since it’s party pineapple.
