I’m not talking about the Swedish band but rather a kit to help you when you get hurt 🙂
The complete package weighs in at roughly 100g and the yellow ripstop bag weighs about 8g so it’s really lightweight. Inside the bag there’s a zip-lock bag that’s really easy to open and close to get to what you need. This makes it really easy to refill and still keep the kit waterproof after its first use.
