Ultra Light Cycling First Aid

Posted: June 25, 2010 in Wreckin

As promised here is the prototype mini first aid kit I made up for cycling.  The one I am showing below is slightly larger than what would be comfortable in a jersey pocket however it fits rather well in an under saddle bag or a backpack/Camelback/Panniers the smaller jersey version is still in development and should be out in the very near future.  The box it is all kept in is a smallish tin box with a waterproof seal and a snap closure.   Here are the vital stats I even weighed it for all of you weight freaks out there:

Dimensions:
Length: 6 inches
Width: 3 3/4 inches
Height: 1 inch
Weight: 5.5 ounces

Included:
1- Laerdal pocket CPR Mask
1- Triangular Bandage (perfect for stabilizing an arm and/or a shoulder injury)
1- Pair of Latex free gloves
2- .9g tubes of Neosporin
4- 2×2 12 ply gauze bandages (Why so small? Because if needed you can unfold the 2×2’s and make them a larger bandage. You can also use to triangular bandage to hold the gauze on a laceration)
8- Standard issue Band-Aids
2- Packets of Vionex (Antiseptic wipes excellent for cleaning if you happen to get blood on your hands, can also be used to clean up a wound if needed)

    Ya know GB, this could be a burgeoning business opportunity for you. Could take off like RoadID.

      There is something in the works right now actually. It will not net millions but it will make available two different micro-kits for under 10 bucks each. I am working on getting the price down as far as possible right now to make it more appealing to people.
