JCK hit the nail or nails on the head, great advice all around. A point touched on by others and one that can't be stressed enough is EDUCATE YOURSELF!!! Take a first aid class (or invite me along on any Middle/Main/Lodore/Selway/Hells/Smith etc... trip you might have). Know what is in your kit and how to use it. Think about what potential damage may happen to your friends/companions or more likely those you run across. Do not be part of the problem, Be part of the solution...

Adaptic non-adhering sterile dressing - especially on a wilderness trip where the dressing needs to be long term.

Add latex ace style bandages to shed water from big open wounds. I'll always have several rolls on hand. Lots of clean cotton cloth and alcohol also has value.

Not sure I saw anyone mention it yet but I am sold on some Cavit or Tempanol. This stuff works great for tooth injuries. Never knew how valuable it was till I broke a tooth off mid run last year and my buddy had some for me.
