“Duct tape and ibuprofen are normally all I carry when I’m solo, but when I’m leading groups or going on a long or remote trip, I want to pack responsibly without getting bogged down with excess weight,” says our tester. “This clever kit hits both buckets, thanks to an integrated mini-pouch that I can pull for shorter excursions—no resorting or repacking needed.”
