C.A.T 7

You need one of these close at all times. It's incredibly simple to use with great quality. It will undoubtedly change the outcome of an emergency situation. Don't take a chance by not having one of these in your KIT close at hand.

Made well and easy to use

The product is obviously designed with "simplicity under stress" in mind. I was impressed with the quality of the product and the ease of use. I will buy more for my other med kits. I am planning on taking a training course with Dark Angel. Great Company to work with. I have really been happy with all the med gear I have purchased.
