    The Ankle Kit

    Posted by Kenny Ortega on Oct 3rd 2018

    This ankle rig is much more comfortable than I thought it would be. It holds all the necessities in a compact, easy to carry package that leaves no excuses for not carrying it. It's a great piece of kit that could save a life someday.

    Ankle Kit

    Posted by Jon on Aug 3rd 2018

    A lot of the reviews were saying the supplies will work their way out, and the kit rotated on the ankle too much. I’ve had neither experience with this. The small bungee retention works well, and it stays oriented the way I put it on. It’s lightweight, relatively small, and is very comfortable all day. My job requires me to walk and be on my feet for 8hrs+, and I walk an average of 10miles a day. If there was an issue, on the first day of wearing this, I would’ve known. My only request would be to have a video showing how it stock it, maybe better than I have, and to make the pockets just a 1/4”-1/2” talker, because the vacuum sealed packs are a bit sharp if you don’t get the tucked super well.

    Always ready trauma kit

    Posted by John Martin on May 31st 2018

    I was a grunt doc a lifetime ago and now I am a teacher. Between the school shootings and jilted idiots stabbing people over prom rejections, I do worry about being able to make a difference when the SHTF. Our nearest Fire Department might only be minutes away, but that is no consolation to a stabbing or gunshot victim. And school nurses? Sorry, not convinced they can to the work. So I have a kit in my desk but I still wanted something closer to hand. This kit is it. I got quickclot control dressing, a chest seal kit, a compression bandage, and a tourniquet. They even throw in a pair of nitrile gloves. This is gonna handle a lot of bleeds - and certainly will keep a bleed under control until I can get someone to show up with my bigger kit. I've been wearing this for a week now and it is comfortable. It doesn't present much of a tell either. The tabbed bungees keep the gear in place and the pouches themselves provide for a pretty snug fit. This means stuff isn't going anywhere until I want it out. The tabs also mean that I can slip the restraints quickly. This is a sign of a well-engineered product. If you are looking for something that will handle the unthinkable, that is convenient to wear and is unobtrusive, you can't do much better than this. I do recommend you spend time developing that muscle memory by practicing reaching for what you want. This is a great kit at a solid price for the value.

    Ankle Ifak

    Posted by Robert on May 21st 2018

    This kit is very comfortable, so far. I wear long socks and Kuhl pants or blue jeans for a typical work day servicing corporate clients as a programmer, and the kit fits very nice just above my mid top boots and fits securely to my leg without shuffling around. There is slight printing, but really nothing to be worried about considering the amount of trauma gear on-board, and frankly not that noticeable with my low-top hiking boots. I adjusted the SOFT tourniquet with windlass to the side in a "flat-pack" fold for a more shallow profile. (check out https://youtu.be/pN7Gxn4Avq8). Next I pocketed the front and back chest seals, together with the combat gauze, then the 4" ETD dressing, and finally the decompression needle. I carry the D.A.M. military trauma kit in the side of my bullet proof backpack when on location, but this seems to be the perfect CCW / EDC solution, at least for me when not carrying my pack.

    Ankle Kit

    Posted by Bryan on May 11th 2018

    It took a couple of days to break in, but after wearing the kit for a week it has become almost unnoticeable. The kit fits well over boots and boot cut jeans. It is comforting knowing that I have the gear on me to possibly save my own life or the life of another. My only critique is that the bands that loop over the contents to hold them in place tend to not stay in place and stuff tries to work its way out of the pockets. I would recommend this kit to anyone who is serious about their EDC; whether you are carrying a gun or not, you should always have medical supplies with you.

    Stocked Afak

    Posted by Will Holmes on May 4th 2018

    I wore the ryker afak for quite a while so my review can only compare the dark to the ryker. I appreciate the elasticity of the dark afak, the ryker is not elastic. The dark has both an elastic ankle band and elastic pockets that securely holds contents along with the much appreciated red tabbed bungies. The ryker has neither elastic pockets or bungies. The ryker afak has an inner pocket on the ankle band to hold chest seals which greatly reduces bulk. The dark does not. The ryker is also more heavily constructed and is overall a bit larger than the dark. This, to me, made the ryker more comfortable as it's thicker material spread the pressure of the contents on the ankle. The ryker also comes with an extender to go over larger boots. This could easily be fabricated for the dark. The ryker doesn't have sharp edges anywhere, the dark does. Each afak has pros and cons. I do feel the contents are more secure in the dark. My CAT always tried to hop out of the ryker, the dark's bungie holds it secure. Not to mention the dark has a pad that extends out of the kit for the tq so it doesn't bite into your leg. I wish I could give it more of a review but I cannot as I've only had it a short amount of time.

    Ankle Kit after 2 weeks of use.

    Posted by Matt on Mar 16th 2018

    I have been wearing the ankle kit for 2 weeks now and thought it was time to write a review. I average 15k steps a day at work and have found it quite comfortable to wear once it was a bit broken in and the components have begun to conform to my leg. My only complaint with the kit itself is that I wear ankle socks and some of the edges are quite sharp and have caused hot spots and discomfort while wearing it. My other complaint is that the kit arrives in pieces with no explanation of where things go. If you have substituted any of the components then the pictures on the website don't help very much.

    Ankle Kit

    Posted by Connor on Mar 14th 2018

    I’m a schoolteacher and have been wearing this everyday for 8+ hours each day through teaching, and even coaching. This is a great product, but I would expect nothing less from Dark Angel Medical. This will fit just the essentials, but that is all I need at the moment for EDC. Low to minimal printing with Vertx Delta Stretch pants. I am using a SOFT-W which fits fine, but I also carry a RATS tourniquet in my pocket given the age of the students I work with. There is ZERO excuse not to have IFAK essentials, especially so with this kit. This is my first experience with this company, but I am definitely a customer for life.

    Ankle Kit

    Posted by Brandon on Mar 8th 2018

    I have worn a tourniquet with an ankle strap for about 6 years. The strap I used to use was far more flimsy and would wear out in about 1 1/2 to 2 years and would only hold a tourniquet, but it worked for my purposes. I have been using this ankle kit for about a month now and overall I like it. It is very well made, holds the items secure, and lightweight. The things that I don't like or would like to see improved are: the tab and cord to hold the tourniquet in is not necessary and would likely only get in the way when you need to get the tourniquet out in a hurry; more adjustment. I am 6'2" and 205 lbs, when I wear this as tight as I like to I only have about 1/2" of Velcro secured, and I would like to be able to tighten it a little more. These are only minor deficiencies and can easily be remedied by the owner but they are why I only gave it 4 instead of 5 stars.

    Ankle kit - Trauma kit

    Posted by Bob on Mar 7th 2018

    Excellent quality and fits well with any boot cut jeans. Items are easily removable but yet not too easy that they work themselves out while moving around.

    Awesome rig, only thing I would like to see different is to have the kit all up together when I receive it, but I am sure they do that on purpose

    Ankle Kit Review

    Posted by Josh on Feb 23rd 2018

    I've carried a trauma first aid kit that fit in my back pocket that is roughly the size of an overstuffed wallet and is really uncomfortable to sit on. This new ankle kit has been a great relief for that, as well as allowing me to carry more trauma kit, and a better tourniquet. It took a little bit of getting used to and some time working with the packaging so the corners wouldn't poke my leg. The CAT-T does stick out a bit under your pants, but if you're wearing boot cut, it's not very noticeable.
