The Ultimate First Aid Kit Includes All Of This

Almost everyone agrees that taking a first aid kit on the trail is a good idea. Where people draw the line on what to take is another story. Some people take a few ibuprofen and some band-aids while others take an entire survival bug out kit. In this article I will be listing out everything an ultimate first aid kit would include.

First-Aid-Kit-Unpacked First off I want to say that in my opinion taking everything on this list is overkill. I also think that everyone’s first aid kit should be different and put together just for them. For example: I get heartburn a lot when on the trail so I take plenty of antacids while others may not even consider taking them. Use this list to put together your first aid kit based on what you think you need rather than taking everything on this list.

  • Small to Large Band-aids
  • Gauzes
  • Elastic Bandage Wrap
  • Moleskin
  • Hydrocortisone
  • Antibiotic Ointment
  • Aloe Vera Gel
  • Lotion
  • Antacid
  • Cough drops
  • Imodium AD
  • Benadryl
  • Pain Relievers
    • Ibuprofen
    • Tylenol
    • Aspirin
    • Advil
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Snakebite Kit
  • Tape
  • Gloves
  • Needle
  • Safety Pins
  • Q-tips
Other Items

  • Cold Compress Pack

Again, Use this list to put together exactly what you want in your first aid kit. In most cases you do not want to take all of what is listed here. I hope you found this list helpful.
