The Adventure Medical Kits Ultralight .3 first aid kit is a good lightweight off-the-shelf choice (3.5 ounces, $10.95). I also recommend Bob take a Wilderness First Aid course – knowledge and confidence multiply the value of any kit and weigh nothing. Bob will learn how to flesh out his kit with improvisations such as a zipper lock bag with a clipped corner to irrigate his marmot bites, duct tape, clothing, trekking poles, and other items he’ll already be carrying.
