For long or more challenging trips, it is important to pack a larger selection of common items and even some additional items such as:
Additional bandages: Gauze pads, “ACE” bandages and butterfly bandages.
Additional drugs/lotions: Ointments for wound healing and relief of skin irritations
Additional tools: An arm Sling, SAM splint, a thermometer, some forceps, and/or an instant ice pack are some worthwhile suggestions.

Sawyer Insect Repellent is a versatile picaridin spray recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) as safe and effective for most people. Our testers liked the evaporating smell and how the spray feels once it dries.
Insects and arachnids that bite in self-defense instead of to feed -- such as yellow jackets, bees, wasps, hornets, certain ants or spiders -- cannot be repelled with insect repellents.
The number of bug-borne diseases is increasing, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And the number of places they're spreading to is also on the rise.
