Review - SJ Works Bicycle First Aid Kits

Many people seem to underestimate the importance of first aid. Coming from a family and friend network of doctors though, I have been made aware on many occasions of the importance of first response.

SJ Works is a Danish brand, who are looking to bring First Aid to the cycling market in a smart and convenient way; with saddle bags, frame bags and top tube bags that contain all the essentials you need for the first treatment of cuts, falls and bleeding.

The bags themselves are good quality: To test their durability, I removed the lightweight First Aid products from the saddlebag; then filled it with tools and used it as a normal saddlebag for a few weeks; it held up to the challenge admirably. The reflective material that covers the bag is a great added visibility aid too.

The First Aid products inside the bag are well thought through, and contain everything that I would normally put in a lightweight expedition first aid kit. There is also a neat booklet with First Aid advice, and a branded reflective trouser clip.

In summary, this is a great idea for any leisure rider, commuter or long distance touring cyclist. Having encountered minor injuries and frostbite on my recent #7Countries7Passes tour, I was reminded of the importance and necessity of First Aid; these little kits are the perfect solution to ensure you can take the correct response when minor accidents do happen.
