MAKE YOUR PURCHASE A SUCCESS…
Refill Immediately after you use your conents
A common issue, we use those plasters while out on the trail… you get home and away goes the kit and it is not until you need it the next time their is an injury on the trail… but you don’t have enough plasters. Not refilling when you use stuff leads to a depleted kit and not having what you need, when you need it. Buy a refill kit when you buy your first aid kit so that it’s ready
Familiarise yourself with your First Aid Kit contents
It is not just about having a first aid kit and carrying it but also knowing what’s in it and how to use it. Familiarise yourself with the kit when you purchase it. Any multi day trips you undertake may require you to help in an emergency – would you know what to do? If not gain some knowledge about first aid.

Always Tell Someone
Always tell someone where you are going, how far you are going and for how long. If you are riding alone or alone with your kids this is a must for every ride.
