[pct-l] Suture Kits

As a physician hiker, I have never  considered carrying a suture kit.  I
also do not carry stri strips.  I rely on good old duct tape for most of
my needs.  Although it is lacking in visual appeal, it is very sticky,
very durable, and somewhat water resistant.

If you have a cut that is too big to close with tape, I doubt that you
could suture it without prior training and experience.
