Gear Review: Adventure Medical Kits' S.O.L. 3 Survival, Medical & Gear Repair Pak

A first aid kit that can handle way more than blisters.

Get Adventure Medical Kits’ S.O.L. 3 Survival, Medical & Gear Repair Pak, and you’re equipped for every emergency—not just splinters and blisters. This zippered pouch opens clamshell-style to reveal two compartments: one for gear repair and survival tools (duct tape, cable ties, firestarter, etc.) and another for medical supplies (gauze, moleskin, antibiotic ointment, and the like). It even comes with a detachable ditty bag, so you can pare down the larger kit for shorter hikes. $56; 1 lb. 5 oz.;
