    One thing that I’ve always wished Woodlore would offer is a first aid kit tailored for the wilderness. Just a base kit would do in a well designed outdoor friendly case, so that we can add items and tailor it more specifically to our needs. There is only one company offering FAKs aimed specifically at the outdoor market and is not bushcraft oriented.
