It’s often during the moments directly after an emergency strikes that we begin to jot down a mental — or sometimes physical — list of all the things we wish we had. A 10-pound bag of rice in the cabinet. A stash of extra contact lenses. Toilet paper. (Or maybe a bidet?) Of course, we can’t expect to have the forethought to cover all the bases, but one thing that’s smart to have around regardless of the state of the world is a first aid kit.

Of course, you don’t need to overthink a first aid kit, but if you need a well thought out example of one, look to the one made by the survival company VSSL. Its take on first aid is to stock a kit roll with tape, bandages, sterilizers, antibiotic ointment, pain killers, gauze, gloves and more, and slide that inside a waterproof, military-grade aluminum cylinder. Oh, and the cylinder is also a flashlight. And it has a compass.

VSSL made its first aid kit with the idea that adventurers could stash it in a backpack, but there’s no reason its lightweight and compact form isn’t perfect for a kitchen drawer (or a bug-out bag). Right now, VSSL has the kit marked down by 25 percent and is including an extra first aid roll too.
