Medic Kit

Post by Albert Oosting » Wed Nov 08, 2017 10:08 am

Basics: Thin Foil rescue blanked: Then your equiped to deal with heat/cold ingures/prevention
Emergence bandage: life threatening bleading, supporting bandages and splines, abrasion and burns. Multi functional, nice and light.

anything smaller is not a show stopper, is it? ;)

Comments are welcome!

I only carry the standard first aid kit (bandages mostly) and... a tiny bottle of vodka Not for internal use obviously, but for cleaning small wounds.

I used to carry a bivy sack (very light and waterproof) but I ditched it some time ago in order to save volume.

When riding in really remote places I have carried a 2 man bothy bag from Rab equipment. Two people can sit up inside it and brew up, or it can be used as a single person sleep sheet . A good one is about the size of a grapefruit

Standard box of tapes and patches. I also carry my sons Belio GPS tracker watch so my missus knows where I am as I normally ride alone.

I have a few Butterfly Sutures too. Plus a few strong painkillers just in case (Tramadol).

1 industry Standard bike first aid kit.
Add to that:
2 Bonjela - an antiseptic and local anathetic, for use anywhere you like.
3 Super glue. it sticks skin to skin very well.
4 a Sam's Splint - bendy foam and aluminium which can be adapted to firmly support most bits of most limbs, when combined with bandages from the first aid kit, or duck tape from your tool kit.
