I found this kit to be a really nice balance of essential items for the traveler or for a basic medical kit to keep in your car.
* Nice packaging - I really like the case that comes with this kit. Unlike some hard cases in which first aid kits come packaged, this one has a soft-sided and zippered case that opens to reveal separate compartments holding the items. It even comes with a handy hook that you can use to hang it wherever. Nice touch. The case doesn't seem to be especially heavy duty, but does appear to be reasonably well made.
* In addition to medicines for pain and fever, the kit also contains antihistamines, antidiarrheals and antacids to take care of your stomach, critical when you are away from home.
* The kit also has a small set of tweezers to take care of splinters, and moleskin to soothe blisters from a day out walking.
* A decent set of adhesive strips and bandages are also included.
* The kit comes with a book full of useful medical advice that seems to be well organized and informative. There's no replacing training and education in an emergency, though; the book is good and handy, but you don't want to be referring to it for critical first aid information when you are stressed out and in the middle of an emergency.
The expiration dates of the medicines that came with the kit had about a year left on them, at the earliest. You should always check these, however, and make regular rotations of fresh medicine a habit for any perishable medical supplies and first aid kits.
I use this particular kit for domestic and foreign travel and as part of our car's emergency kit. The size is good for a couple of people for a couple to a few days and doesn't take up too much space in luggage - about the size of a small-to-medium toiletry bag. I have other medical kits for camping and backpacking that are better suited to the space and weight needs of these specialized activities.
