This review is from: Lifeline Trail Light Dayhiker First Aid Kit – 57 Pieces (Sports) This is a great little kit for day trips or to have in the car.It is compact and will fit nicely into small places. Most first aid kits have an expiration date of 3-5 years.This one will expire in less than a year. Unless you are prone to slipsand falls you might want to purchase a kit with a longer period of usefulness. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 22 of 23 people found the following review helpful Pretty Good Starter Kit, June 25, 2014 By JNieporte (Ohio, United States) – This review is from: Lifeline Trail Light Dayhiker First Aid Kit – 57 Pieces If you’re new to First Aid and need a kit, this is a good choice. If you’re a First Aid junkie, then this will still be a good deal if you can find it for less than ten dollars. The kit itself weighs 3.7 ounces. The “soft sided case” is a small lightweight nylon bag, light orange in color with a semi-reflective grey corner. It measures 4-1/2″ tall, 5-1/2″ long, and 3/4″ thick. There are two zipper sliders to keep the pouch shut, and the zipper goes from the bottom left corner to the top where the grey corner meets the orange part. The zippers are what you typically find in a $10 First Aid Kit; cheap, but serviceable if not used a lot. The bag itself feels cheap, but again, serviceable if you don’t use it a lot. A 1-1/2″ long loop is sewn to the top in the back so you can hang it up; this is cheap quality and mine has torn with a few uses.Inside the pouch, there’s nothing. No further compartments, pouches, pockets, or anything. That’s fine (it wasn’t advertised as having any) but something a future buyer may want to know. Inside are the following items…-A First Aid Guide, which is really just a sheet of paper printed on both sides with some basic First Aid instructions.-A roll of 1/2″ wide Tape, 3 yards long. A large ZipLock bag, containing:-Two 3″ by 4″ sterile Non-Adherent Dressings, individually wrapped. This is like Telfa, the non-stick side of BandAids.-Two 3″ by 3″ Sterile Gauze Pads, individually wrapped.-Two 2″ by 2″ Sterile Gauze Pads, individually wrapped.-Two Sterile Knuckle Bandages, individually wrapped. Fabric.-Ten 3/4″ by 3″ Sterile Bandages, individually wrapped. Off-brand BandAids. Fabric.-Five 3/8″ by 1-1/2″ Sterile Bandages, individually wrapped. These are plastic, not fabric.-Five Sterile “Wound Closure Strips” which are really just plastic Butterfly Bandages. Individually wrapped.-One sheet of Moleskin, 3″ by 4″ with pre-cut shapes for blisters and hot spots. A medium ZipLock bag, containing…-Two Sting Relief Pads, containing Benzocaine.-Two Triple Antibiotic Ointment packets, each 0.2 ounce.-One Hydrocortisone Cream packet, 0.3 ounce.-Two two-packs of Antihistamine Packets, each pill is 250 mg.-Ibuprofen. Each pill is 200mg, and you get two packs of two.-Two two packs of Acetaminophen, each pill is 500mg.-Two Alcohol Prep Pads.-Two Antiseptic (BZK) Pads.-Two PVD-Iodine Pads. A small ZipLock bag, containing…-A tweezer, a single piece of folded spring steel sharpened at the tips. It’s a China-made copy of the Sliver Gripper. It’s not a bad copy.-Three 1-1/2″ Safety Pins.-One pair of Vinyl Gloves, size Large. These are cheap and should be replaced.-Three wooden Q-tips with a single soft side. In general, everything is good for this price. I opened one of everything, and the bandages are all good quality (the brand on the wrappers just say LifeLine). In fact, with the exception of what I mentioned, everything is of good quality. It’s not hospital grade, no, but it’s more than fair for the price. The pouch has enough room to accommodate another pair of gloves, a 3″ gauze roll, a 5″ by 9″ ABD pad, a set of bandage scissors, a few more gauze pads, and a few more BandAids if you pack it carefully. It will still be small enough to fit in a BDU pocket, a jacket pocket, or a backpack slot. The medications are the only thing in the kit with an expiration date. I received my kit on 21Jun2014, and mine are dated Aug2015. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 4 of 4 people found the following review helpful Exactly right for an Emergency Get-Home-Bag, July 17, 2015 By Craig Jones (Orange, CA, USA) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Lifeline Trail Light Dayhiker First Aid Kit – 57 Pieces (Sports) This kit has the perfect contents, size, weight, and cost for an emergency “Get-Home-Bag.” I was pleasantly surprised that the only two items I had to add were a disposable thermometer and packet of burn cream. As others have noted, the expiration date on the tag is early (only 18 months from now, in this case) but it’s referring to the one item that expires that early (the 2 ibuprofen tablets). Everything else expires the following year. Even so, I’m not worried. (My understanding is that the efficacy of these drugs don’t suddenly drop to zero on the expiration date, but rather gradually become less effective over a few years.) As you can see, the “First Aid Flyer” is just a folded up half-sheet of paper. It seems to cover all of the basics (at least by glancing at the section headings) — except that it does not specifically address blisters (even though the kit comes with a piece of moleskin). I don’t like that it doesn’t cite a source for this material, but I assume it’s trustworthy information for what it is. The contents arrive packed in three zipper baggies: one for the gloves, and everything else crammed into just two other bags. So, I reorganized them by adding 3 more small baggies that I had lying around (while I added the thermometer and the burn cream). Otherwise, the kit is good to go. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
