Emergency Camping First Aid Kit for Canoers

by PennPaddler

If you’ve seen our camping first aid kit Webpage then you should have an idea how important it is to have a good first aid kit with you while canoeing or camping. If you haven’t been to the webpage I suggest you go there and watch the videos about camping first aid kits.

Creating your own first aid kit is a good idea if you have the knowledge and time. But this Marine 400 Kit is a good buy. One great feature is that it’s waterproof, so it’s great for paddling. Another thing is that it’s packed with plenty of first aid items for many scenarios. It would be expensive to assemble a kit like this on your own. This kit normally sales for $120.00 but it’s now on clearance for $59.95 at Sierra Trading Post.
