April 18, 2022
LITTLETON, N.H. (April 18, 2022) –Adventure® Medical Kits, the leader in outdoor first aid, announces today the fully revamped Marine series with seven premium medical kits created specifically for boating. The line offers a solution for consumers ranging from everyday recreational kayakers up to large-scale commercial fishing vessels. With a high-grade waterproof design and approval by the United States Coast Guard, boaters can feel safe and prepared for any excursion.
“When designing this series, we wanted to offer the right range of kits and contents to meet the needs of any boater,” says Garrett Cox, Head of Marketing at Adventure Ready Brands, the New Hampshire-based parent company of Adventure® Medical Kits. “Receiving the Coast Guard seal of approval was a pivotal element in the product development process. This credential aligns with our on-going dedication to quality and performance. We take great pride in providing medical kits that meet the high standards of the United States Coast Guard.”
In addition to the Coast Guard stamp of approval, the revamped Marine series is entirely waterproof with an IP67 rating. The seven models are curated to meet the needs of a wide variety of boaters, ranging from solo kayakers to recreational boaters and even to professionals on commercial fishing vessels with a large crew. The first three base models have a dry-bag design for lightweight packability on smaller boats that can carry six people or less, while the four larger models come in a shockproof dry-box container, better suited for larger vessels with more crew members. The contents vary by model and offer a robust assortment of supplies, tools, and instructions needed to treat a variety of injuries and ailments. The complete collection includes:
• Marine 150 (MSRP $64.99)
• Marine 350 (MSRP $119.99)
• Marine 450 (MSRP $159.99)
• Marine 600 (MSRP $209.99)
• Marine 1500 (MSRP $369.99)
• Marine 2500 (MSRP $649.99)
• Marine 3500 (MSRP $849.99)
A popular size from the collection, the Marine 600 (MSRP $209.99), is ideal for six or less people on an extended trip up to six hours away from professional care. The kit’s waterproof and shockproof case features stainless steel hardware and a seal to keep the first aid supplies dust-free and dry, even if submerged for 30 minutes in up to one meter of water. Contents include a wide range of wound, burn, and blister care items, along with medications, fracture and sprain supplies, and an emergency blanket to prevent hypothermia. In addition, a copy of Marine Medicine: A Comprehensive Guide by Eric W. Weiss, MD and Michael Jacobs, MD is included as a detailed resource to help identify and treat over 200 injuries and illnesses specifically related to marine medicine.
“The purpose that drives Adventure® Medical Kits is to ensure outdoor enthusiasts are prepared so they can focus on enjoying the adventure while maintaining safety,” says Cox. “We’re thrilled to offer these best-in-class Marine kits so boaters of all kinds are equipped with the medical necessities needed for any open water excursion.”
