Packability

The Ultralight / Watertight .7 measures 6.5” x 8.5” x 2” or about the size of a Nalgene bottle, but given the shape, size, and adjustability of the items it definitely seems much smaller and easier to pack in even the smallest daypacks, hydration packs, or even a large jacket pocket. Weighing in at only 8 ounces I hardly ever even noticed I had added anything to my already chock-full mountain biking or backcountry skiing pack.

Convenience of the Ultralight / Watertight .7 First Aid Kit

Easy to use and self contained, the Ultralight / Watertight .7 is easily transferable from pack to pack without any hassle at all. With the variety of items included it can be used for just about any outdoor activity including hiking, mountain biking, skiing, paddling, camping, backpacking and more. I primarily used it in my mountain biking pack and ski pack and always felt secure knowing that I had everything I needed in case of a mishap on the trail. Additionally, the double layer of water resistance in the outer silnylon and inner DryFlex kept the Ultralight / Watertight .7 First Aid Kit dry and usable even if I was caught in an afternoon thunderstorm or white-out blizzard. I didn’t have to worry about pulling it getting damp if I pulled it out of my bag and set it in the snow to access other things in my pack.

Usability

Luckily, even after months of toting it around, I didn’t have to use the Ultralight / Watertight .7 for any injuries, but I did take everything in and out of the kit several times and it was easy to unpack and re-pack. There is even a bit of extra room in the outer DryFlex bag to add items of your choosing. Each item is clearly labeled and could be quickly and easily opened even in an unsettling situation if needed.

Overview

Not surprisingly, since it’s their business, Adventure Medical Kits nailed it with the Ultralight / Watertight .7 First Aid Kit. It is super lightweight, water-resistant, easy to use, and has all the bases covered when it comes to common outdoor adventure mishaps. If you don’t have one already, get one ASAP. It is also affordable at about $27, so you probably couldn’t even build your own kit for the same price. More info at adventuremedicalkits.com.

Evan Chute: Evan moved to Colorado in 1998 specifically to mountain bike and snowboard. Sure, he may have told his parents the move was "for school", but after getting that distraction out of the way he started enthusiastically exploring Colorado. His focus in the summer is riding mountain bikes across a variety of disciplines from cross country and trail riding, to downhill and Enduro, dual slalom, dirtjumping, and even a little racing here and there. Evan fills winter primarily with skiing, having switched from snowboarding in 2009, and puts in nearly 50 days on snow each season with a mix of resort and backcountry days. In between skiing or biking Evan can found hiking, camping, backpacking, road cycling, sampling or brewing tasty craft beer, working on a 1970 VW desert race car, cooking at home with his girlfriend, and occasionally utilizing that pesky college degree as a freelance graphic and web designer.
