This is the most comprehensive kit reviewed but also the heaviest, bulkiest and most expensive. It’s not one for solo use but for group use, especially 3+ people, it’s excellent. It’s not perfect though. It only has two blister dressings, which I think is far too few for a group kit. I’d add at least half a dozen more.

The fold-out pouch has four separate labelled compartments so accessing items is easy. With its watertight zip it should prove pretty water-resistant though not fully waterproof as the seams aren’t sealed.
