My small first aid kit for hiking and backpacking


Download your FREE first aid kit checklist here:

I have modified my first aid kit into perfection for the last 5 year but it is important to note it is based on my needs and my hiking locations. This list has all of the essentials but please make sure you know where you are going and modify your kit accordingly (think antivenom for poisonous snakes, extra supplies for longer trips etc.). Pack all of your supplies into a waterproof zip-lock bag, always refill it after your trip, and you are good to go!

  • Med student and first aid instructor here.
    I understand that you mainly focused your kit onto the everyday nuisances of a hike. However, you should still keep life saving material in your first aid kit, because that is what first aid is: Measures to ensure the patient survives long enough to reach professional help in the first place. Even in relatively well developed regions with competent healthcare systems, such as Sweden, emergency services may need hours to get to you and hours again to get you to a professional hospital, especially in the mountains, forests or snowy regions. You should definitely include proper wound bandages, burn dressings, triangular sheets and some good emergency scissors such that you can access and bandage serious injuries and stop life-threatening bleeding, which otherwise can kill you or your companion faster than any ambulance can get to you.

    First aid is first and foremost about saving lives. The kit you presented is certainly a very well thought out convenience kit, but not a first aid kit, it does not give you the tools and materials to save lives. My suggestion: get one of those vehicle first aid kits you have to have in your car and add the items you presented to that. This should give you everything you need to avert anything from minor inconvenience up to a life threatening emergency.

    (PS, I first brought this up as a reply to Maiu's pinned comment, but later decided that it would be more fitting to be its own comment. Sorry for the double notification to Maiu.)

    You really have to be prepared out here.

  • Hi upload a video about sewing kit

  • Wow prety woman. Saludos desde MΓ©xico city.

  • I have one basic kit with also deet and tic tool, i live in a swamp area. When walking i add the blister set you have too and in my basic set is one big sheet of blister plaster. When i go into the Alps or Ardennes i use a trauma kit, a large IFAK with added tourniquet, splint materials and such. A Victorinox Fieldmaster is part of my EDC just like a penlight to check pupillary reflex in victims i come across.

  • It is a very nice kit. I think I would only add a brief list of emergency contact information as well as personal identification information and present health issue. Lastly, a pair of nail clippers and a file. Thanks

  • Start taking magnesium citrate daily. It will really help you with your migraines. Aim for 350-750+ milligrams of elemental* magnesium daily. (You will only have the laxative effect of you too take too much at one time.)

  • For some magical reason I don’t get notifications even with the β€˜all’ bell ticked, thought you may of pulled up stumps, good to see that is not the case

  • What a great channel! Thank you! πŸ™‚

  • You should use an opaque bottle to store your antiseptic, because light can deteriorate the liquid. Use a solid white bottle.

  • Good video with intelligent choices of First Aid materials. I add bite and sting cream in my kit, but not essential. Have been considering an Israeli bandage to cover any emergency bleeding

  • Thank You. I really need to upgrade my first aid kits because they are terribly outdated (at least 10 years outdated) I will download your list now. Thank You again πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ‘πŸΏπŸ‘πŸΏπŸ‘πŸΏ

  • Hello Maiu, thank you for sharing another very informative video. This video has vital first aid information. I really enjoy your videos. All the best to you and your family. Stay healthy.
