About Adventure® Medical Kits
Adventure® Medical Kits, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tender Corporation Inc., is the world leader in innovative first aid and outdoor survival gear that help people enjoy safe outdoor adventures. Co-designed with top emergency, outdoor, marine and travel medicine experts, AMK’s activity-specific products are specially designed to prevent and treat common injuries and ailments that occur during outdoor activities, mountaineering, hunting, sailing, hiking or traveling the world. Many of the kits follow AMK’s unique Easy Care™ system, which organizes hospital quality supplies into injury specific compartments, allowing the novice or pro to quickly and confidently administer first aid. Additionally, the kits come with Easy Access Bandages™, a revolutionary new way to package and apply bandages on the go. The company markets a wide range of survival products, including its top-selling Escape® Bivvy Sack and Pocket Survival Pak™, and bug repellents and bite treatments, such as Ben’s® insect repellent and the world-famous AfterBite®. More recently, the company has expanded into the hygiene category, with the release of the Adventure® Hands Sanitizer and exclusive distribution into the outdoor retail channel of Fresh Bath™ Wipes , both of which help reduce the likelihood people will contract an illness while out in the field.

Developed by Z-Medica Corp., QuikClot® is a hemostatic agent designed to stop high-volume -- including arterial and venous -- bleeding. QuikClot® works by removing the liquid components from blood, allowing the platelets to clot rapidly. Whereas blood can take between 10 to 30 minutes to clot using direct pressure, QuikClot® will clot blood within five minutes. QuikClot® is made of a granulated mineral substance called Zeolite, which comes encased in a porous surgical sponge. It is biologically and botanically inert, leaving little chance of allergic reaction.
