D.A.R.K. TRUAMA KIT - civ (red color)
Hope to never use it, but always wanted a kit I could rely on for dangerous injuries. God has protected my family while living out in the countryside in Louisiana but I plan on having this in case just in case those machete swings miss, or that barb wire decides to jump out at you. Kit looks solid, I'll tell in time if double stitching is needed or if these heavy duty threads will hold. Canvas seems like the real deal, and everything is organized and pressure sealed. Recommended by my brother who does all the research, it feels like a well built design and I hope after it's lasted decades I can put it on the shelf never having used it, but grateful it's within reach.
Great kit, has everything you need and the layout is perfect.
Great trauma kit, perfect size.
I needed a quality, fully stocked trauma kit to keep with my range gear. I heard from several street medics and other medical pros that the Dark Angel kits were the best. This fits my needs perfectly, is a great size, and the molle on the side let me attach a second CAT.
Been researching several different IFAKS, in my occupation you never know when you'll need it. We are provided with one, however with me 2 is one and 1 is none. This IFAK is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you Dark Angel.
I’ve been looking for a good quality kit for my setup. This one seems to be really good quality and definitely worth the money. The Molle is especially good and seems strong
Needed an IFAK for my instructor belt and my buddy who owns Fenix Ammo recommended Dark Angel Medical. I did my own research and features of this pouch make it one of the best. From the extra long pull tab to open the top flap to the pull cord that is wrapped up in the vacuum sealed contents itself; this pouch is set up for quick deployment. Very pleased with the turn around time and the quality of the pouch and contents.
High quality gear that I hope to never need but am glad that I do.
After refreshing my knowledge and obtaining my Advanced Bleeding Control certification I went looking for the best kit to replace my cobbled together training supplies. After hours of research I made the best choice with the D.A.R.K. Kit. This is everything you need in quite possibly the smallest yet still accessible package possible.
DARK Trauma Kit
This kit lives up to the reputation that Dark Angel Medical has developed. Great customer service with short shipping times. Everything is vacuum sealed with a detailed inventory list so you know what you have without breaking into the package. I would highly recommend getting this if your active in shooting sports.
Excellent Quality, and Craftsmanship!!! I did think it’d be a little smaller, to where I could run it on the back of my belt but it wasn’t, so it’s on my duty bag. Just gives me a reason to order another one from them!!!
Peace of Mind
This kit gives you what you need to stop a bleed an nothing you don't. Great bargain!
This kit has everything that I need in an easy to access quick deployment pouch. I have created my own version in the past for my team but this works better. Everything you need nothing that you don't.
