Exceedingly common, painful, and frustrating to deal with, blisters are an infamous scourge of the physically active. In combatting this form of dermatological trauma, it can be difficult to know what supplies to compile. Historically, even the best blister kits lack in scope, leaving the feet deprived of optimal attention when out in the field. Whether purchasing a ready-made kit or compiling your own, it can be a trade-off between an all-encompassing suite of contents, and the weight/bulk of the resulting pack. These incongruous requirements do make it tricky.
Armed with a better understanding than most on the causes, preventions and treatments for blisters on every part of the foot, here is my assessment of 14 blister kits available for purchase. When I say best, some are fantastic in their scope. Others are average or even way below par, but are well-known and popular brands. I urge you to use the information to inform your purchasing decision, or help you compile your own kit to strike the right balance between blister management capabilities, weight/bulk and usage scenarios.
So, let’s make a start at the ugly end and work our way up to the best blister kits on the market.
