LL Bean Microlight UL 1 Person Tent

The LL Bean Microlight UL-1 (MSRP $299) is a single person double-walled tent that weighs 1 pounds and 14 ounces, including an inner mesh tent, aluminum poles, and exterior rain fly (but no stuff sack bags or tent stakes). It is easy to squeeze into narrow or small campsites, making it a good option if you camp in heavily forested terrain where there aren’t a lot of good places to pitch a tent.

Example responses

I carry (A) a store-bought first aid kit made by Adventure Medical.

I bring a store-bought first aid kit, but I’ve added a SAM splint to it and more bendryl in case someone has an allergic reaction in our group.

I don’t carry a first aid kit. My hikes aren’t long enough to need one. But I’m interested in see what other people do. 

I’ve found that commercial first aid kits are rip-offs. I assembled my own using stuff around the house and in our bathroom cabinet.

  1. I certainly carry a modified first aid kit. After taking wilderness first aid courses, I modified my McDavid kit with triangle bandages for splints, added more safety pins, more duct tape, more gloves and other barriers between me and any accident victim’s fluids. I added Benadryl, eye wash in tubes, and sanitary napkins for very bloody cuts. I also carry a cold compress that activates with shaking.

  2. I carry a (C) first-aid kit I’ve assembled by myself. I find that I can easily tailor it to the actual activity I’m doing that trip. I have found that most things are easy to buy and cheaper than buying a whole kit.

  3. Thanks to everyone who participated in this survey. Lots of helpful information here.
