    Anyone spending time away from immediately available care would do well to pack one or more of these in their first aid kit. Sure, you can improvise splints out of found objects, but a sam splint is light, compact, and right at hand if you pack it with you.

    I purchased this for another first aid kit. Having taken a Wilderness First Responder class, we used these in practice so I like to have a first aid kit that covers the bases...just hope I don't need to use it.

    I worked for 3 years as an EMT in Vermont, and the SAM splint was standard issue for everyone's first-response kit. These are one of the most versatile and lightweight first aid items you can have in your pack - I recommend everyone have one, and receive training on how to use it. I've used a SAM splint dozens of times on other people, from splinting broken wrists to fractured legs. I once sprained my own ankle on a solo hike, molded the SAM splint around my ankle like an air cast, and was able to hike out with stability other makeshift splints wouldn't have afforded.
    One tip - I have removed the internal frame from my own pack, and slid this item in instead. They are very lightweight.
    Please don't take this review as medical advice - go to your local rescue squad and ask for some training with a SAM splint - they will know how these are used. Take an EMT course, learn more about first aid, and keep a SAM splint in your first aid kit.
