Not Quite as Described.

Reviewed by Joe from WNC on Friday, June 27, 2014
I just received two of these kits. The first thing I noticed was that the small extra pouch (Mini-ripstop fabric carry bag) was missing in both of them. So I inventoried both kits and this is what I found:

Items present that are not listed:

Compass
Fire starter (flint wheel)
Safety Pin
Alcohol prep pad
There are a few extra band-aids.
Folding scissors

Items not present:

No Shears! Folding scissors instead.
Mini-ripstop fabric carry bag
One triple antibiotic ointment was missing.

Notes on omitted items:

EMT Shears cost more than cheap folding scissors. The extra smaller bag is nice if you want to pack just a few things for a day hike.
Buy it if you can get it at ~$30. But check Adventure Medical Kits website for complete details of contents.
