FIRST AID: Consider This Sutures Alternative For Your Backcountry Kit

Its called the Zipstich and it beats the hell out of a butterfly bandages when it comes to dressing a nasty deep wound you might get in the backcountry until you can come up off the mountain and get to a hospital.  They are pricey ($29 per unit) but could be priceless in handing a laceration situation. Here’s how they describe the technology:

“Introducing ZipStitch™, the only surgical-quality wound closure device available without a prescription. It is completely non-invasive and easy to use, wherever you may be. ZipStitch enables you to treat cuts with hospital-grade technology, when you can’t get to an ER for stitches. Continue your outdoor activities with less interruption and avoid the potential pain, hassle and out-of-pocket costs associated with a trip for stitches.” ORDER HERE

“Everything you need to treat and close a laceration when you are out of hospital range: ZipStitch, Alcohol wipe, Gauze pad, Bandage. ZipStitch is a good value at $29.99 vs. a trip to the ER which may cost up to hundreds of dollars in out-of-pocket costs depending on your insurance.”

Even if you don’t buy one of these, I hope this reminds you about backcountry first aid preparedness. Always continue training, have a plan, and carry first aid essentials every time you head out into the great unknown. Be safe:
