Accidents happen. Being prepared with first-aid basics is just common sense. Major injuries and trauma are for the professionals to handle. Bites, scrapes, cuts and bruises are relatively easy to fix. Take a look at these well-equipped marine kits and keep one on board.
Adventure Medical Kits Marine 250
The Light: The hard-shell case with a double-zipper closure can be mounted to a rail or snapped to a bulkhead. It has three resealable bags with items grouped by their general application. There are 55 items including a 288-page first-aid manual. The case comes with a convenient carry handle.
The Dark: The case can be bulky if stowage options are limited. Manual is a tad too big for the sleeve and is difficult to remove.
Ultimate Survival Technologies Marine 2.0 Kit
The Light: This has a round, lime-green soft case with a clip to secure to the vessel or a belt loop. The back side of the case is reflective Mylar for signaling in an emergency. The kit comes with two resealable packs including cutting shears and basic first-aid information. It has 84 items.
The Dark: This has lots of stuff, but it could use a slightly larger case. Do not confuse this kit with Model 80-30-1320, which is not the marine version and is different.
