First Aid Kit

After recently taking a 2-day First Aid/CPR Training Course, I decided to look for a decent First Aid Kit. Sierra Trading Post had a $60 kit on sale for about $22 so I grabbed it. It's a combination First Aid, Survival, and Repair Kit all in one...Comprehensive review HERE...it seems to have it all; firestarter stuff, shelter, even Duct Tape :)  See complete contents list below...
