Lifesystems Mountain First Aid Kit Review


Lifesystems Outdoor Survival?

Lifesystems Mountain First Aid Kit WalkHikeClimb

When you embark on an adventure the first port of call is getting all the kit you need for your chosen activity laid out in front of you so you don’t forget anything. So in my humble opinion one of the first things that should go in your pack snugly at the bottom “just in case” is a first aid kit. Not just to make running repairs of our scrapes we have along the way but also to be a good Samaritan to any other like minded souls that need.

So when we had the opportunity to have a look at Lifesystems version of the mountain first aid kit we were not going to let it pass us by.  When you spend time looking at Lifesystems they really do cover a multitude of activity’s and emergencys. Obviously first kits are the first thing that come to mind but they sell outdoor survival and water purification aids along with all manner of sun and insect repellent products…a very impressive range indeed.

Lifesystems strap line is “surviving Adventure” which very neatly encompass’s there purpose and also describes what we try and do with each new venture up high.

Who are lifesystem, the story so far?

Surviving Adventure, with quality and performance at the core…

Uncompromised quality and performance are at the core of every Lifesystems product.

Our first aid kits not only have the highest quality contents, but are also comprised of weather- and wear-resistant packs; our mosquito nets are made from strong hexagonal mesh and an easy-adjust system; our insect repellents use individually tailored formula to provide the best protection wherever you’re going; and our mountain survival products have been tried and tested in some of the world’s most hostile environments, giving the highest performance, time and time again.

Whether you’re travelling the world or just venturing outdoors for the day, your health and safety is paramount. Our purpose at Lifesystems is to provide the essential protection you need, never compromising because you should never have to.

Lifesystems specialise in all aspects of outdoor survival you can mention and under closer inspection of there product range it really is an impressive array. Even within the first aid kit product list there are 24 different versions for all manner of outdoor activity or eventuality. From Mountain first aid kits we are looking at onto Pocket, Dental and travel first aid kits. They really aren’t going to miss a trick when it comes to covering the marketplace, and in some ways it does make Lifesystems the one stop shop, clever really.

The Mountain First Aid Kit has been specified with the help of expedition doctor Hugh Montgomery and members of the British Special Forces medical team. For use when professional medical care may be some distance away. And the contents of this pack really are extensive as well

Our first aid kits not only have the highest quality contents, but are also comprised of weather- and wear-resistant packs…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A design feature I appreciated was that the kits have an easy pack and find system where you can open up the whole pack to see all the contents in front of you making it easy to spot what you require quickly and easily. It also helps when restocking your kit if you have to use anything when out in the mountains….simple and clever.

Another feature of Lifesystems kits is the durable Ripstop Cases. The iconic red cases are synonymous with Lifesystems. Each pack incorporates the use of hard wearing ripstop fabrics and waterproof zips which provide that extra level of durability and protection. The smaller packs feature belt loop attachments and the larger versions have grab handles and outer pockets with reflective strips.

Finally its worth mentioning weight as it can be a topic of conversation a lot of us get obsessed with when out in the mountains or off on a wild camp. The pack we have looked at is only 700g in weight which is probably the same as a small bottle of water so not much at all in reality. An only measuring 200 mm x 140 mm x 90 mm it doesn’t take up much room and from experience it fits snuggly at the base of a 38 litre pack tucked away till such time you need it. With a retail price point of around £30 it isn’t a massive expense and its also something you really probably only need to buy once and replenish from time to time. In my experience its  better to over prepare than “wing” it when up high (so to speak). You might not hopefully even need the kit 9 trips out of 10 but that one occasion when you do then the lifesystems mountain first aid kit will not let you down.
