Designed for outdoor professionals with Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician (WEMT), Wilderness First Responder (WFR), or Wilderness Advanced First Aid (WAFA) certification, the Adventure Medical Kits Guide I First Aid Kit is also suitable for people who are serious about first aid in the field. The Guide I's carry case is thoughtfully designed to protect and organize the contents within, with water-resistant fabric and zippers and color-coded subcompartments. The Guide I's carry case is large enough to permit the user to customize his Guide I to his own particular requirements. Easy-break tabs are provided and may be affixed to the zippers of the Guide I's compartments and subcompartments to give the user notice that a particular compartment or subcompartment has been opened and may have been used, and therefore needs to be checked for cleaning and restocking. The easy-break tabs may be broken easily without tools during an emergency.

The Guide I's array of different contents are contained within the carry case. The carry case is bright blue in color and features reflective piping for higher visibility in low-light conditions.

The Guide I 's carry case is subdivided into five major subcompartments: Tools, Essentials, Personal Protection, Medications, and Trauma.

The Guide I's outer compartment includes the more commonly used subcompartments (Tools and Essentials). The exterior of the carry case is labeled to this effect.

Adventure Medical Kits Guide I First Aid Kit

The Tools and Essentials items are contained separately from the primary compartment by design. This design helps to maintain the integrity of the primary compartment (which contains the Trauma, Medications, and Personal Protection items) after repeated use and to protect those items against contamination or inadvertent loss. This is a very thoughtful design, because it is the Tools and Essentials that will be used the most frequently. For example, the Essentials subcompartment contains many commonly used items such as antiseptic toilettes, sunblock, Moleskin, Spenco 2nd Skin, and so on. In this fashion, the Trauma and Medication items are left inside the bag where they will remain cleaner.

When accessing the primary compartment's contents, the carry case may be flipped inside out for for easier access to the Personal Protection, Medications, and Trauma items.

The bottom of the primary compartment also features elastic loops for customizing the Guide I.

The elastic loops differ in size to secure items of different size. The large loops will easily secure a small bottle of contact lens solution.

Adventure Medical Kits Guide I First Aid Kit

The small loops are very suitable for holding items like this Pelican Products VB3 LED Utility Light and SureFire 3P Utility Light, both essential items for every first aid kit. The Pelican VB3 may be clipped to a shirt or jacket pocket, as well as to the brim of a hat for hands-free illumination of patients and work areas. The SureFire 3P emits a very powerful beam of light that could be useful removing ticks or splinters. Both utility lights are powered by lithium batteries, which have a 10-year shelf life and do not self-discharge or leak like standard alkaline batteries.

Also very suitable for first aid kit use is the Black Diamond Ion Headlamp. This all-LED headlamp is so light and small that it can go anywhere and there is never a reason not to leave it in the Guide I. Like the Pelican VB3 and SureFire 3P, the Ion is powered by a lithium battery, so you can count on it to work when you need it, even after prolonged storage.

These are but some of the customizations possible with the Guide I and are not intended to be comprehensive. Each user will customize his own Guide I to his own needs.

Study A Comprehensive Guide to Wilderness & Travel Medicine when you receive your Guide I. Remember that the first rule of medicine is "First, do no harm". The Guide I's contents are designed for outdoor professionals with Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician (WEMT), Wilderness First Responder (WFR), or Wilderness Advanced First Aid (WAFA) certification, and contains many advanced implements. If you do not know how to use the advanced implements, don't. However, the implements do not take much space and are there in case somebody in your group is qualified to use them or you eventually receive the proper training on how to use them. Studying A Comprehensive Guide to Wilderness & Travel Medicine is not a substitute for proper first aid training, but it is a good step in the right direction and you should study it when you receive your Guide I.

The Personal Protection subcompartment contains the following items:
