All in all a pretty good kit.<br><br>You might want to consider adding a few other medical items like paracetamol / ibuprofen for pain/ fever and lomotil (diphenoxylate+atropine) for diarrhoea and the like and some antihistamine - piriton or polaramine.<br><br>

personally i think that, taking painkillers is worser than the pain...<br>bear in mind that im only 15, so buying medicine without persprition is hard !<br>besides i didnt had much space left...

PC2K,<br><br>Very well done. How much of it can you get into the tin? <br><br>Wish I had done as good of a job at a PSK at 15 as you have with yours.<br><br>It is likley that there are legitimate pain killers and anti sick medications available over the counter, perhaps your parents could research this with you (and a doctor if needed as well).<br><br>All in all, great job!

PC2K,<br><br><br>Just wondered how much of the content list that you provided was able to fit into the tin. >Smile< It seems like marvelous packing job. <br><br>Each time I repack my kits, it gets harder and harder, at some point one has to go to two tins due to the "new & better" components that I keep adding.<br><br>Regarding the medications, I understand your thinking, and am not advocating packing anything that one might be uncomfortable including in a PSK. As each person is unique, so to are their needs and PSK's.<br><br>Be safe.

well i fitted everything inside exsept for the tape i used to seal the tin with. i think it is allready bulky enough without something on the outside.. that why i don't have paracord around it.<br><br> i had that problem of repacking my stuff to, wenn i got new stuff.... my first psk i actually carried as EDC thing was 8x5x1.5 cm the second 9.3x5.8x2 cm and the current one is 11x8x3 cm... and it is FULL !!
