D.A.R.K. (DIRECT ACTION RESPONSE KIT) Slim Trauma Kit and Individual First Aid Kit (IFAK)
The D.A.R.K. Slim, which is similar to our signature kit, (The DARK) has everything you need, and nothing you don't when it comes to a lifesaving trauma kit. The DARK Slim is packed tightly with more trauma supplies than you can typically find in other trauma kits this size. This tactical style trauma kit, or Individual First Aid Kit (IFAK), was designed with "simplicity under stress" in mind, for when you need it most. The DARK Slim is trusted by both, the Military in the world's worst environments and Law Enforcement Agencies around the country. The D.A.R.K. Slim is perfect for the Military and Law Enforcement as a tactical trauma kit, and for First Responders and Civilian use.

High quality product. Came highly recommended and I was impressed with what was received. They shipped faster than expected in a Covid environment.
I have purchased a number of Dark Angel products since taking one of their classes and been impressed with all them. I picked up the Slim for my battle belt, which I use when working rifle drills on the range or when I'm camping. It keeps everything I need close at hand without being obstructive. It held up great during a rifle course I took over the Fourth and I'm very happy to have another piece of Dark Angel gear with me if I ever find myself in a situation that requires it.
Great stuff has everything quick access which is great when in full gear.
This slim kit lives up to its name. I was on the fence by price but once I received the milspec kit, I was highly impressed and I am now thinking about going to their medical course out of state. I feel more prepared with this kit and I'll be ordering more refills. My backstory is that I survived two violent gun crimes (bad school/ city areas). If I had known about these years ago during those horrific times, I could’ve saved lives rather than watch people bleed out rapidly while EMS took minutes. As a survivor I am very pro gun. These are ideal for go bags for civilians. The price isn't high for what you get, but the results are there. Think of this thing as a life jacket. Chances are you’ll never need it but if you do really need it, poor training or a bad kit is no good and people die. Thanks for such a high quality kit. I believe every range bag, car, home, etc needs one of these. I wish public schools had more of these kits in their clinics for saving people during tragedies.
Really cool setup. Came in less than s week of ordering. Alot smaller than I thought, which is good because my plate carrier is already packed. Best thing was I used my Health Savings Accounts to pay for it.
I purchased the mil-spec variant. Excellent Quality. Great content for its size, and at a reasonable price. I am over-all very pleased with my purchase.
Love this company, just as any professional downrange should. Fast shipping (8 days from POO to Kandahar, Afg) for an IFAK that screams commitment to quality inside & out; when it's your life or a brother's on the line you'll be happy you didn't skimp. Probably the most well thought out & put together trauma IFAK on the market, cannot recommend these guys enough.
Overly impressed with this company. Ordered this product last week and in exactly 7 days later (I live APO so this is incredibly fast for shipping). I am love the kit and gear that I ordered. I am definitely coming back. Dark Angel, keep up the outstanding work
As a patrol shift, we made the decision to get the Slim kits as opposed to using our department issued IFAKs. They’re less bulky to the point where you can put it conveniently on a duty belt and it’s super easy to deploy. As a shift, we’ve also used our kits 4 times in the 3 years we decided on the change. Highly recommend this to anyone that is on the fence of which kit to buy. For reference, I work in a large busy city and specifically work in the entertainment district aka bar district.
Been stocking up on medical and building my own kits for years. These kits are ready made and good to go. I dont rob anything from them and they are always good to go. Best yet is my HSA insurance pays for these kits to be prepared. These truly are the perfect ready made kits in a durable, and portable system. I keep one on me always.
Kit is amazing it’s everything you could need the only thing I don’t like is the placement of the scissors as size of scissor handle. When they are in the side pocket the handle sticks out past the front of the kit which makes packing it in a backpack a little difficult because you don’t want to damage the backpack or the kit. If they could find a way to put the scissors on the back side of the kit it would be much better.
A great piece of kit. Item shipping was fast and the Salesperson was very helpful. I will be back.
