    how much is it?

  3. I like the fact that all of the gear you need for 1st aid is included with itmes that may not immediately come to mind as first aid. Especially the survialva type items that until you find yourself trying to treat someone in the evening and you realize you aren’t making it out that night that will help to make things a little nicer for a night out!!

    I think that’s to much for a first aid kit but it might be worth it if you’r real adventurous
