Back to modifying FAKís...

I carry a small FAK more often than anything largish. I had been carrying an AMK Ultralight .3, but in their wisdom (and I wonít rationalize why) AMK has made the decision to shift from the small nylon pouch with a waterproof inner bag to a Waterproof DryFlex Bag. The AMK UL.5, ,7 & .9 kits still come with the nylon outer pouch.

IMO the DryFlex bag alone is not adequate. One comment on REIís page for this kit described a sealed/unopened kit getting wet inside when his kayak capsized. Apparently the DryFlex bagís integrity failed (pinhole?) which is why you want a tougher outer bag. So rather than buy another AMK UL.3, Iím downsizing an AMK UL.5 to carry the minimal contents of a UL.3. Okay, maybe a little more than the .3.
