When you travel with a first aid kit, you quickly learn how often you need a bandage, something for stomach upset, or a small flashlight. I never travel without a first aid kit, often relying on the a homemade kit, often forgetting to replenish everything I used up on the last trip.
A wonderful sleek kit that can be ordered online is the VSSL Gear First Aid Kit. The VSSL cylinder is made of military specification anodized aluminum and weighs under one pound. It includes most commonly needed items for minor medical issues including a variety of sizes of bandages, antiseptic wipes, rubber gloves, medical tape, safety pins, razor, and also has an LED flood beam lantern light which lights up a large area and includes batteries, an oil filled compass to help find your way in all conditions. The contents are high quality and well sourced. Compact size for the glove box of the car or to keep in a backpack for hiking or to add to a suitcase for any holiday. The light is perfect if the lights go out at home or on holiday. In the event your condition turns into an emergency, there is a whistle included and the dual mode LED Flashlight can be used to signal for help. Made in Canada starting at $66.50 CDN.
