    I went with the Aerostich one. I have used it a few times, mainly for small stuff like a burn... seems to work well. Plus it comes with duct tape.

    It isn't what you ride, it is if you ride

    I have not carried on on my bke. Made me realize how dumb that is tonight looking at another thread.

    I have a good expedition kit I built, but too big to carry. I have a back packer mini kit, along with elastic stretch wrap around "bandage", an army field surgery kit $14 surplus, and a packet of "blot clotting" powder as I take blood thinners.

    It is going on my bike or I will assemble another. Just dumb not to carry one.

    I like to support "fellow riders" and I just received this kit from "JKam", one of the "light and fast" series... great packaging with everything one would need... The enclosed book alone "A Comprehensive Guide to Wilderness & Travel Medicine" by Eric A. Weiss, MD is worth its price... with over 60 illustrations and 50 improvised techniques... My thought is that it should be a "standard" item with every bike purchase!!! Think of how many lives it would save... and without much noise...
    NO... I do not work for Jay!!!... I just think it is a great product!

    Be well... Ara

    When touring in Europe, all the time as it is LAW. On this side of the pond, I only carry one when on multi day trips...although that logic doesn't really make sense.

    Probably has already been mentioned...

    Start off by buying one with numerous compartments. I usually toss the contents (use them at home) and pack it with high quality items. Items such as: 3M tape that leaves no residue, high quality band aids that leave no residue, 2" x 2" gauze pads, Polysporin ointment, etc.

    I also pack pills in numerous small 1" x 2" zip-lock bags: headache/pain, colds/stuffy nose, Imodium, Gravol, sore throat, muscle relaxants. I also carry nasal spray.

    And remember...First Aid kit contents have to be checked and replaced regularly.
