The image presented for the .3 is deceptive. The .3 does not come in a silnylon pouch as depicted in the image. I believe the pouch is a good part of the value of the product as it is bright yellow and is highly visible when in the pack and finding it quickly is of utmost urgency. Since the virtual shopping experience does not allow for hands on inspection of the product the images are critical that they are accurate and depict the product being purchased.

No pouch as pictured and all the medicines included are already expired. Very disappointed! I don't know if it's a first aid kit to save my life or not!

Very disappointed that the item I received was not like the one in the photo. I did not receive a pouch with the first aid kit. Which was one of the reasons that I choose this item. I am not sure if I was mailed the wrong thing but I didn't receive the kit that was shown on the amazon website.

The picture shows a water proof nylon bag that the contents come in. I did not get the nylon bag but a cheap plastic zip lock bag. The bag is not what the picture shows or what I expected. Cheap do not buy

Great value! Lots of great first aid equipment in here, including blister pads/moleskin type material. That alone is almost worth the value of the kit. Excellent for backpacking, ultra lightweight, waterproof bag, and I personally believe there is enough in the kit for 2 people for a couple days. I bought the .3 and am very satisfied!

I bought the .3 Adventure Medical Kit for my brother-in-law. He plans to keep it in his day pack for day hikes. Although I didn't use it, he was very happy with it and said it has everything he needs for any problems during a day hike.

The picture of the packaging featured online for the Medical Kit.3 is different from what I received.
I got a resealable plastic type bag that says "waterproof" on it. The resealable strip is pretty much that of a Ziploc bag and for the first use you would "tear here". For less than $11.00 (what it cost) I could have gotten a full box of each item at the dollar store! I rarely give 1 star reviews but I am not happy with this. SO not worth $11.00. Also, I received it today 12.31.12 and it expires on 12/2013. I'm not sure what the average shelf life for first aid kits is, but 1 year for bandages and antibiotic ointment seems too short.

The ONLY good side to this is I bought this for an emergency kit I put together and since it is so small and light it won't take up much room in by "go bag" at all. One always hopes nobody gets injured at all of course, but if anyone has more than a paper cut I doubt it will be much help.

Small size and convenient.
I use mine for cycling and would fit in back of cycling shirt.

I bought the .7 kit too. The larger kit reseals with a zipper. This is more like a 'freezer bag seal'. Press to close. Not sure if it would remain watertight once opened.

I ordered mine in April 14, disappointed the expiration of contents shows September 14. (Seller issue)

One would think the seller would have kits that have a year before expiration.

I would have given the item 4 stars if not for this.

I purchased this kit for my every day carry pack. I wanted a very small, light, first aid kit to handle normal injuries and medical issues. I own one of the much larger .9 kits which was very impressive.
The kit arrived in a sealed plastic zip lock bag, much like the larger kit, though this one lacked the carry bag and was sealed with a single piece of wrippable plastic in addition to the zip lock mechanism. The kit contains a selection of bandages, wipes, and pills to deal with small scale pain and injury--see Amazon's description for specifics. My kit came with the advertised materials with a couple years remaining on the shelf life. The packaging is a little larger than a standard sandwich bag and about an inch thick fully loaded. It is very light. The materials are high enough quality to get the job done, while remaining inexpensive enough to be disposable.
Pros:
This unit is small, light, easily carried, and seems to live up to its advertising. You don't want something like this to be a fix-all kit; it's something to handle lesser booboos, scrapes, cuts, and the like. It is perfect for its intended role.
Cons:
The kit doesn't come with the advertized bag--which isn't a problem for me but I feel should be pointed out on principal. Based on its limited scope I would have expected this kit to be an inch or so smaller in at least one dimension. It gets the job done--but in a package that really could be shrunk down some. The .5 case isn't much larger and offers considerably more utility. The reason one buys the .3 is for its portability so the excess space is less than ideal when you're looking at putting it in a pants pocket or a small carrier on an EDC bag.
Final thoughts:
In the sense that the .3 has all the items as described, it's a good product. From a form and function point of view it could be better. I'm happy with my purchase, but at this size factor and price point I'll look at moving up to the .5 or .7 when the components need replacement.
