This is the most minimalist kit reviewed with a rather odd mix of contents. In such a small kit, obviously best suited to solo use, why have two sizeable bandages and a fairly large roll of tape but no blister dressings or painkillers? I’d add the last two plus some antiseptic wipes and more plasters and remove one of the bandages. The pouch is good. It’s waterproof with a roll top and a rigid frame inside so it stays open, making extracting items fairly easy.
