Popular wisdom prescribes packing tools to fix your bike on the trail... and rudimentary first aid to fix yourself. The Void R1 provides the essentials in a compact and resealable waterproof plastic package. Bulky bits are vacuum packed and there's a quick guide with basic first aid procedures. Be careful, but not too careful out there.
Works great to carry on every ride.
But it could have done with a few paracetamol in it.
I bought this first aid kit for my dad who, thanks to an electric bike, has taken up cycling. After coming off second best with the gravel a few too many times we've convinced him to add this super lightweight first aid kit to his bag so he can patch himself up on site rather than dripping blood all the way home. The kit has everything that he would need to clean up a scrape or wound and then keep it well protected for the ride home. While the whistle would be helpful if he ever ended up over the bank and needed to draw attention to himself. He reckons he'll be using it to patch up all the other riders he finds in the dirt, but at least it gives us peace of mind that he's got something in his bag if things go a bit wrong.
Very compact and light. Appears to have the most of what would be required for basic first aid. Good range of bandages and wipes in a waterpoof pocket. Good price for the contents provided. I added in a tube of iodine antiseptic ointment and a stretchable wrapping bandage. The first because for many abrasions an antiseptic cream is easily applied and can be reapplied, and the wound covered by a one-use bandage (supplied in the kit) and wrapped in the added reusable cotton bandage. The supplied rubber strap around the kit can hold the extras in place. Nice to see a survival blanket. I can see replacing items may be tricky as those supplied are vacuumed-packed and hence able to fit into the provided pocket. Off-the-shelf chemist replacements will be a bit bulkier and may not fit as easily. You can of course order from the Aide webstie.
Great compact size & next to zero weight - and all the basics you need in the event of an unexpected tumble. Hope I never have to open it but it's comforting to know it's in the pannier.
