Littleton, N.H. (October 2016) –Adventure® Medical Kits, a leader in high-quality wilderness first aid kits and trusted by the world’s foremost mountaineers and outdoor professionals, announces the re-launch of their Mountain Series Medical Kits. Drawing from leading experts in the field of emergency medicine, the new Mountain Series Kits feature the most up-to-date guidelines and medical grade products available for when wilderness emergencies arise. This new series features six kits from the comprehensive Mountaineer, pack with quality supplies to treat 10 people for 28 days, to the super-compact and ultra-light Day Tripper Light kit, perfect for up to two people on a day hike.
“When I’m on an expedition and far from medical care, I feel more confident when I carry Adventure Medical Kits’ first aid kits. You never know what illnesses and injuries might come up. It’s reassuring to know that I can take care of myself and others,” said Kim Havell, mountaineer and adventurer. “I’ve skied on all seven continents, and explored in over fifty countries. Adventure Medical Kits’ are convenient to take along and stocked with everything I might need.”
Available in April 2017, the Mountain Series provides peace of mind with the highest quality kits for adventures near and far. The Mountain Series includes; the Mountaineer, Guide, Explorer, Backpacker, Hiker and Day Tripper Lite first aid kits. Ranging in price from $15 to $200, the kits are fully equipped for day hikes, multi-day backpacking trips or expeditions.
Housed in a new trapezoidal shaped bag design with darting to provide increased volume, all of the kits feature 2X PU-Coated 420 Denier Nylon that protect the contents from the elements. The back of the kits now have an exclusive kit map that lists all supplies and clearly shows where they are located in the kit. The interior pockets utilize semitransparent, lightweight nylon material and are organized and labeled by injury to help kit users quickly find what they need. The Mountain Series kits are filled with quality components including treatments like After Bite®, QuikClot®, Easy Access Bandages® Glacier Gel® and After Burn®. The three larger kits come with Adventure Medical Kits’ Comprehensive Guide to Wilderness & Travel Medicine by Adventure Medical Kits’ co-founder Dr. Eric Weiss. Now in its fourth edition, this guide offers the most up to date wilderness medical information and gives key advice and guides for using the kits contents. The Hiker and Backpacker kits come with a new condensed, lighter and smaller version of Dr. Weiss’s book, featuring information on the most common to serious types of injuries backpackers and hikers may encounter. The smallest kit, The Day Tripper Lite, comes with our recently published, Quick Guide to Wilderness First Aid.
The Mountain Series now has two additional price points with two smaller kits, the Day Tripper Lite and the Hiker, both ideal for recreational day or weekend hikers. The Day Tripper Lite, $15, weighs a mere three ounces and is the perfect kit for those looking for a day in the woods solo or with a friend. Super-compact and ultra-light, the Day Tripper Lite is an essential to round out any day pack. The Hiker, $25, is built to hit the trail with you and a buddy for a couple of days.
