1. Editor's Pick: Swiss Safe 2-in-1 First Aid Kit (120 Piece) + Bonus 32-Piece Mini First Aid Kit
With almost 8,000 reviews and a 5-star rating on Amazon, this first aid kit from First Aid Only is, well, extremely popular. It contains 298 essential first aid supplies and features a clear plastic liner in a nylon case for organization. The soft-sided, zippered case is great for automotive use—leave it in your trunk or glovebox. Some of the items included in this first aid kit include fabric and plastic adhesive bandages, burn cream and cold packs, and some medication such as Ibuprofen and Aspirin.
2. Lifeline AAA 121-Piece Road Trip First Aid Kit
This kit has way more equipment and is branded by the Automobile Association of America, AAA. That means its a pretty trusted bundle of safety gear and it promises to be well suited for road trips. Weighing 1.28 lbs, it isn’t very heavy but packs more than you can imagine, including sting relief pads, scissors, tweezers and an abundance of bandages. With over 300 reviews on Amazon, it’s pretty well recommended, but some buyers wanted more quality pieces.
3. Always Prepared Ultra Light & Small 126 Piece First Aid Kit
This kit is more suited for medical emergencies, with painkillers, burn relief and ointments. It’s definitely a good choice for families on the go, as you never know how people will react to new environments. It also comes with a handy hammer, which can be used in serious emergencies to help break a window or remove a seatbelt. There are some missing pieces that’d be handy roadside, like a flare and jumper cables, but it’s a pretty nice kit.
4. Coleman Camping All Purpose First Aid Kit
This kit is advertised as being a go-to unit for camping, but can work in your car, too. It has plenty of bandages, but also lots of ointments and cleaning supplies to ensure that no one gets an infection or anything. It also has safety pins, a razor blade and an instant cold pack as well. It comes in a tough case too, to ensure it can withstand any situation.
5. Always Prepared 125-Piece Roadside Assistance Auto Car Emergency Kit
Survivalists will love this bundle, with just about everything you could think of for an emergency kit. There’s a first aid kit, with items like band aids, tape, gloves, and ointment, but there is so much more. The jumper cables are an essential item for road warriors as are the pliers and reflective triangle. This is a perfect emergency kit for anyone who drives.
6. Protect Life 150 Piece First Aid Kit
This kit is extremely small and portable, with lots of equipment that would be extremely helpful during an emergency situation out on the road. It has such items as a whistle, instant cold pack and a roll of first aid tape. However, it’s not the most automotive related kit, and is lacking things like jumper cables.
7. Thrive Roadside Assistance Auto Emergency Kit
This kit is also perfect for the road warrior, with a reflective triangle, jumper cable, hammer, tire pressure sensor and more. It also includes a first aid kit and tie-down cables. The screwdriver and wrench are also great additions to the kit. Basically, this will be a huge help no matter what the situation.
8. Lifeline AAA Excursion Road Kit
This kit has everything you need for a good roadside assistance pack. While it also comes with a standard first aid kit with medical supplies, it also features a compressor to help inflate a tire, as well as jumper cables and a variety of screwdrivers. It’s a must-have for those who love to take road trips and want to be prepared for the worst case scenario.
9. Lifeline AAA 66-Piece Severe Weather Road Kit
This kit is a lot like the Excursion kit, but better suited to those who live in areas that see severe weather. It’s perfect for those who can get stuck in the snow, as it features a portable shovel, hand warmers and warm fleece gloves and other apparel. It also has a few medical supplies as well. It’s a shame it doesn’t come with the jumper cables or compressor like the other roadside kit, though.
10. ESUPPORT 34 Piece First Aid Emergency Kit
This is a small but robust kit that can be helpfully stored in any small compartment in a car. It’s also incredibly lightweight, at just .32 ounces. It has things that are necessary like bandages and alcohol pads, but it lacks other items found in the kits listed here. Some users have also complained about missing items. However, the pack is affordable and portable.
