I have a weekender kit in nearly every pack I own; from search and rescue day trips to my forester's cruising vest at work to a dayhike with the family, this kit comes with. On longer trips for those with more advanced training I carry the mountain medic kit. For the average backcountry user with some basic first aid or wilderness first aid skills, this kit is for you. I have found the kit to be lightweight and contain the things you would expect a beefed up first aid kit to have. After several years of using this kit on a regular basis, I highly recommend it. I do not think it can be beat for durability, weight, or cost.
I bought this kit to keep in the car for whatever might happen. Uncertainty on the road along with occasional treks in the mountains makes this a good choice since it includes most of what you might need. I will add a few additional meds, something for bee sting allergies and perhaps something for a tourniquet just to be safe.
