The plane is 10 hours shy of your destination, your dress is ripped, there's a screaming child in the row next to you and – on top of it all – the in-flight meal didn't agree with your stomach. Even veteran travelers can't avoid the unexpected ills of travel, but there's a lightweight and convenient way to prepare: Pack a TravelMEDIC kit by Adventure Medical Kits. Guard against those memories that are not fondly retold with this 2-ounce kit containing an assortment of bandages and medications to treat scrapes, blisters, head and stomachaches, fevers and more. Not your run-of-the-mill first-aid kit, the reusable TravelMEDIC fits conveniently into purses, briefcases and glove compartments.
