6 Hiking First Aid Kit Essentials

The first thing we all must understand as a first aider is that in the outdoors preparation is key. When putting together a first aid kit for hiking it’s important to find the balance between bringing just enough supplies to have a light pack but also to make sure you have everything you’ll need in case of an emergency. 

Here are 6 must have items to include in your pack to ensure that you are prepared for an emergency, should it arise. 

TIP: 1 bandage doesn’t go very far for a leg, so if everyone carries one, then there’s enough to treat a snake bite properly

Please note: This is not an exhaustive list of what to include in a first aid kit for hiking, just a few suggestions of what to include.

A first aid kit without training is like having all the ingredients in the pantry but no idea how to cook. Actually, it’s more like having everything you need for a recipe, but leaving out one crucial ingredient. Without it, your cake won’t rise and your custard will curdle.
