The Adventure Medical Kit Day Tripper, designed for an all-day hike or a short overnight trip, has wound dressings, a good selection of medications, and a small collection of medical instruments and supplies. Total weight is only 15 ounces, and, with a reasonable size (5 1/4″ by 7 1/2″ by 3″), it fits easily into any backpack. This kit is perfect for hikes into the back-country that include an overnight stay, for car (or camper) camping, and for family outings to local parks. The Day Tripper can also be used as the basic medical kit for a car, boat, or recreational vehicle — or even for local back-country skiing. A book, “The Complete Guide to Wilderness & Travel Medicine” is included — if weight is an important consideration on your outing, read the book thoroughly, learn its contents completely, and leave the book behind when you go on your mountain hike.

Coated in a nonstick ceramic glaze free of harmful toxins and acids, the Evernew Aluminum Ceramic Non-stick Deep Pots come in two sizes, .9 and 1.3 liters. While the deeper pot was handy for boiling water, simmering stew and cooking rice, the lid also serves as a pan large enough to grill vegetables, cook pancakes and biscuits. The larger size is probably unnecessary, all the basic things can be cooked without much effort in the .9 liter version- plus the lower surface area brings water to a boil more speedily.
