A great choice for guides and outfitters, the Adventure Medical Kits Mountain Series Fundamentals is built for trip leaders who are planning lengthy outings to remote locations or just need to be prepared for a wide variety of emergency scenarios. To build a kit of this size on your own would undoubtedly take an incredible amount of time, so purchasing it as a pre-assembled kit not only prepares you and your party for adventure but it saves time too. The long list of practical contents is highlighted by a 4 x 36 inch, hand moldable SAM® splint, comprehensive wound cleaning and closure supplies, and a book entitled Comprehensive Guide to Wilderness & Travel Medicine by Eric A. Weiss M.D., a leading wilderness medicine authority. And just like a hospital emergency room, the kit's components are organized by injury, including corresponding first aid instruction cards to give you the confidence you need at a critical time.
good basic kit

Items are well organized, with helpful instruction cards and quality materials like the SAM splint. The illustrated book "Guide to Wilderness & Travel Medicine" is packed with valuable info and tips. This kit was missing the antihistamine tablets, hence the 4 star rating. Also, most of the medications had substitutes for the major brand names.
