Have you seen the small "flattened" rolls of the duct tape for survival use?

They are pretty compact and there are probably more uses for 100 mph tape than surgical tape. Only downsides I can see are sterility (and IIRC, tape is not sealed or sterile) and allergic reactions to the adhesive.

Along with superglue/dermabond, you have some pretty useful items.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - President Theodore Roosevelt, 1910
