Aloe Gator-Summer combo pack
Aloe Gator-Summer combo pack
Offered by Extremehorizon Surf Shop
Price: 6.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Very thick gel. Not the easiest to apply but no run off.., 19 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Firstly the consistency is a little on the thick side and therefore does not spread easily but can easily, accuratly be applied round sensitive (eyes) areas as no run off. The small size is conveinant for transport but will not last long if it is your only supply of sun cream so have a larger bottle to hand at home to splly before you hit the beach / mountains. Non greasy after application and generally appears to be sweat resistent: no stinging/irritatted eyes caused by run off.Good stater pack only and really usefull for your kit bag for reapplication in the field. The lip balm is reasonable (taste). Convienant if a little small travel pack.


Adventure Medical Kits WoundMe
Adventure Medical Kits WoundMe
Offered by Asaz
Price: 10.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Irrigation kit the main reason for purchase: good addition to other more general first aid kits., 23 April 2014
If used alone the kit is only suitable for general non-life threatening cuts and grazes. The outer 'waterproof' bag is just a zip lock bag so nothing special. This kit is very useful to add to existing medical kits due to the addition of the irrigation kit, (Povidone Iodine +15 ml syringe and nozzle.), 'Skin-Tac' adhesive (skin adhesive) and wound closure strips. The other items are general purpose items (alcohol wipes, triple antibiotic topical single use cream etc.). The wound irrigation fluid can be made up by diluting the iodine with a suitable water source (does no have to be sterile due to the powerful iodine solution contained in the kit). Ideal for general cleaning of wounds especially grazes, cuts that may contain grit, gravel or dirt. All items are in individual sterile packaging with reasonable shelf life (+12 months). Very tightly packed in my opinion probably to keep the full kit pocket sized. A number of the items are not generally available in the UK (UK customer) which is the reason why I purchased the kit in the first place.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ideal: but practice using it - only to be used in extreme life-threatening situations., 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Firstly make sure you attend a recognised first aid course as training is criticical in aspects of First aid, first reponders in emergency etc.This item is ideal for piece of mind and whenether you are around people using chainsaws, hedge trimmers etc. The use of a tourniquet should only be considered in times when the threat to life is extreme. Severe irreversable damage to limbs can/may occur if used incorrectly,As aim of any tourniquet is to stop all blood flow to areas of the body below the site of application. If a situation is truely life threatening most sensible peopel would prefer to loose a limb then their life. However the current medical/research evidence is that tourniquets can be life-saving devices if used properly. As with all things related to First Aid/medical intervention in the field, it is always choice that an individual needs to make, whilst insuring not to make the situation worse for the individual in Peril..'Bleeding to death is quite final'. This Tourniquet can be applied with one-hand easily (if stored in correct configuration, instructions supplied) so ideal for use on oneself in an emergency. When combined with the correct holder (for ease of access) in an emergency this item of kit is useful (subject to the conditions above). Very easy to use and apply. I would recommend regular practice (do not tie off completely, insure that you can still place two-fingers easily under the band). Any first aid equipment is only of use if applied correctly and at the right time. Simple elevation (above the heart) and direct pressure on most type of standard cuts (non-arterial) is normally sufficient to stop bleeding. The strapping is strong and easily to tighten and the plastic tighting arm locks securely in place. It is easy to loosen when required. Can be applied to any limb irrespective of width, as the loop can be fully undone/then refastened for securing around a thigh for example. I have not used in a real-life situation. If i do and a life is saved it well be 5 stars!.

4.0 out of 5 stars NICE hammer: good grip and practical, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use my hammer for mutilple things including; dismantling wooden palletts for converting into firewood kindling. The Claw works well for removing nails with mutilple head sizes, in addition to being used to split joints apart. The hammer head is made of tougthened steel and hammers nails into wood easily with little scratching or over side of wear and tear (no indentations present). I have not used the nail grip function as yet perferring to hold the nails by hand. The ease of use and tight grip control reduce teh likelyhood of missing and hitting your hand instead!.The lower handle is rubberised giving excellant grip and no slippage/rotation when in use. I am sure this tool will last for years of use if stored correctly (dry environment). Generally of a good quality construction and design which I have come to expect from this particular range of tools.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice item, Nice size, range is ok, 30 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good build quality and extra frequency range added over it predecessor. In urban areas the range is somewhere between 1-2 miles at maximum 5 watts broadcast power. You will need to scan frequencies first before choosing a frequency to chat with your mates. some internet views on the % watt power being illegal for use in the UK. Good item to have in your Grab bag. It can also pick up local radio (FM only),. The battery life is sufficient for general use. At this price range ideal to purchase in pairs for use outdoors. In non-urban areas you can expect a larger range. With the options of both UHF and VHF you can choose the best frequency for your environment.. VHF for non-urban areas generally gives better range. The scanner function is a little limited. Multiple security functions available for relatively secure conversations. $ stars due to limited range in urban areas.

6 Inch Cyalume Snaplight 8 hour - White - Qty One
Offered by Symbolism
Price: 3.95

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor light only usefull as a marker., 30 Mar 2014
Very poor light, only useful as a marker for an hour or so. ONLY gives ~3 inches of 'useful' light outside actual stick. I don't expect them to be of much use in an emergency apart from perhaps marking exactly where you are (if attached directly to your body). After a very short period of time will only see the shape of the stick. No use in a power cut situation...

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality clamps, A little tight, screws are basic silver kind., 30 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice quality plastic clamps. The screws are basic silver kind and you will need raw plugs if planning to install into brick. Only screws supplied.A little tight when used with he Maglite. But it better to be tight then to loose. Make sure you take your time when lining up the two brackets. Important to be perfectly in line to provide optimum ease of use.

2.0 out of 5 stars You will not receive this product: new version blister kit does not contain self contained blister pads, 29 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Firstly I did not receive this item as described here. I received the new item Spenco blister kit: comment from supplier below:'The product has been recently changed by the manufacturer. The UPC number of both the old and the new item is the same if you need to verify,. We apologies but we currently only carry the new item that is being manufactured'.
Why has the picture/description not been removed?. You actually receive the Spenco blister kit: which is a totally different product. I had already purchased the Spenco blister kit from another source, so now I have two. Spenco Second Skin Blister Kit - Natural. No offer of a refund from supplier for misinformation as new product is different in every aspect. in my view. As it does not contain any self-contained adhesive pads. if you wish to buy pads then Compeed kits are probably you best answer. Compeed Underfoot Blister Plaster - Transparent, 5 Pack

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong Long Lasting: Not for sensitive skin / man-made fibres / Dissolves Plastics.., 26 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lifesystems insect repellent products containg DEET are always my first choice. As this particular product is maxium strength care must be taken if you have sensitive skin and around teh face. I have used this product in the amazon rainforest (peru) and at the riverside in UK. Repells a wide range of insects including the pesky biting houseflys present in the UK. I mainly use when I am around water and seems to work for the well for between 6-8 hours depending on the level of pespiration (can sting if used close to the eyes, travels with perspiration so be careful), so i personally only use on the lower half of the face and Upper Neck opting for a lower strength cream based product for the forehead and around the eyes. The cream is also easier to apply to these areas. Can be used on cotton-based clothing as well: not to be used on plastics / man-made fibres as well dissolve these items.Excellant delivery service received in 48 hrs.
