The Survival Medical Backcountry Kit XL is a larger version of our Backcountry Kit. Still lightweight and compact, but beefed up a little with the addition of some handy tools, and even more hospital quality first aid materials. The Backcountry series of kits was made for you folks that tend to take your own trail and venture off the beaten path. It really is amazing the amount of high quality items that are stuffed into this kit. And to make it even more amazing, wait until you see the price. Like all Survival Medical products the Backcountry Kit XL is packaged for extended shelf life, so you know the quality will still be there when the day comes you need it.
Shelf Life Details
Most of your medical supplies are comprised of organic materials that break down over time for the same reasons that your home food storage will. Some of the main culprits in this process are light, heat, oxygen, and moisture. In their normal packaging cotton materials will turn yellow and brittle, adhesives will lose their ability to stick, and ointments will dry out.
Survival Medical recognizes the need for a long term solution to this. Over the years we've enjoyed the convenience of being able to buy long term food storage products, put them on a shelf, and know that when the time comes that I need them they will be waiting for us.
Our KITS and BUCKETS are designed with this same convenience in mind. The convenience to buy, put them on a shelf, and know that when the time comes that you need them they will be ready for use.
