The Hiker's Guardian by Victoria Tactical is the perfect individual first aid kit (IFAK) for the avid hiker! We have designed this kit to pack a lot of features into a small list of items. This keeps weight down while providing coverage for a wide variety of possible injuries.
As hikers and adventure seekers, we began with addressing the danger of blisters because we feel that they are the most common hiking injury. We have loaded this IFAK with 5 pieces of moleskin! After that, we added burn gel because many hikers tend to camp and camping typically includes fire. This is a must for any serious IFAK created for hikers. We then selected triple antibiotic as an instrumental part of this kit because of the myriad of cuts and abrasions that can befall hikers. We have also included a pair of nitrile gloves to protect you or someone else while administering first aid.
Additionally, we added several types of bandages and wrappings to our Hiker's Guardian. Adhesive bandages were added to the first aid kit for small cuts and abrasions or to use in the place of moleskin if needed. We then chose to include a triangular bandage for the obvious reason of immobilizing sprains and breaks. However, it can also be used as a sling or to provide additional bandaging for wounds. The Compressed Gauze by North American Rescue is ideal for wound bandaging and wrapping of injuries. Its unique design ensures excellent fluid absorption and expansion for use in both small and large wounds. The Mini Responder 4" ETD (Emergency Trauma Dressing) from North American Rescue is a compact compression bandage. We added this bandage because it takes up a minimal amount of space but is crucial for any hiker in the case of hemorrhage.
