First Aid

One section has remedies for gastrointestinal distress (the most common traveler’s ailment) as well as anti-inflammatories, painkillers, and oral rehydration salts. Another compartment has bandages, tape, tweezers, gloves, blister treatment, and antibiotic salve. Plus, it includes AMK’s Comprehensive Guide to Wilderness and Travel Medicine, as well as a sheet of illustrations of various medical problems that helps when you need to communicate an emergency–but don’t speak the language. $40; 1 lb. 2 oz.; Reader service #122
