As an athletic trainer, choosing from our athletic trainer kits is one of the most important decisions you will make. The correct athletic trainer kit will enable you to do your job efficiently and correctly, as you will have all your supplies ready to hand when you need them.
Some of the questions you will need to ask yourself before making this decision are:
How important to you is portability vs. ease of access? These two design objectives are often at conflict with each other. If you are on the move a lot, you may prefer an athletic trainer kit that you can easily carry around e.g. one with straps, handles or wheels. However, if you will not be moving from place, it will be more important for you to easily find what you need at any given moment. Your choice will likely sacrifice wheels, straps, etc. for ease of access. How many people will you be responsible for looking after? The larger this number, the greater the size of kit that will be ideal for you. What working conditions will you encounter most frequently? If you will frequently encounter ice, snow, mud or other adverse conditions, you should choose from one of the athletic trainer kits designed with durability in mind. Your kit will be a relatively expensive investment. You will want to have as many years of service from it as possible before having to replace it.
