Tegere Outdoors - HIKING INDIVIDUAL FIRST AID KIT (HIFAK)
After many local and overseas trips, we decided to create a 'Hiking Individual First Aid Kit' (HIFAK) that covered the individual but was also useful in a group setting without being excessive. There is often a temptation to pack too much first aid kit which then leads to not packing the essentials. From an individual perspective it is important to have some key items (in our opinion) as found in the HIFAK, and in group situations things can be added and subtracted as required. You can also add things to the HIFAK but we thought we would try and keep it "gram-counter" friendly too.
The inclusion of a foam conforming splint and trauma/haemorrhage control dressing set the kit apart. Both are light weight items with a multitude of uses.
