Dark Angel Medical Ankle Kit IFAK


#1

Many don’t see these as shooting related but in reality everyone should have an IFAK with them when shooting or hunting. I don’t wear a belt and have my overall pockets full enough already so to EDC a medical kit ankle carry seemed like a good option. I have carried this Dark Angel Medical ankle kit every day since just before Christmas. At first it was a little irritating, no blisters just annoyingly there, now I don’t even notice it. It has never came off while I trudge through the woods, nothing lost or damaged. It comes equipped with 1 package of Hemostatic Gauze (QuikClot is what I got), 1 Pair of Nitrile Gloves,1 H&H Mini Compression Bandage, 1 Pair of Hyfin Vent Compact Chest Seals, and 1 Tourniquet (CAT Gen 7). I substituted a R.A.T.S. tourniquet for the C.A.T. Added a decompression needle and a pair of small trauma shears. In tennis shoes the Velcro has a large lap in it and in boots only about half of it is engaged but again, neither way has seen any issues with it coming loose. I have washed the case once due to getting it muddy, no loose threads or shrinkage. When warmer weather hits I will carry it rolled up in the cargo pocket of my shorts. Hope to never have the opportunity to review any of the products it contains, I will update in six months and a year on how things hold up.

Nice looking kit. I need to get a better kit to bring with me.

You can never have too much medical! That looks like a great little kit too. I’m not a huge fan of R.A.T.S. TQ, I prefer C.A.T. TQs, but if you can get a S.O.F.-T., I suggest it for the metal windlass. Also, kudos to carrying a Needle-D, that’s something that too few people know about.
