FirstSpear Friday Focus – Partner Series – Dark Angel Medical D.A.R.K. Pockets

Friday, December 5th, 2014

Once again, the Friday Focus series serves to introduce one of FirstSpear’s OEM partners. This time, it’s Colorado-based Dark Angel Medical. We also spotlight Dark Angel’s D.A.R.K. Pocket line manufactured by FirstSpear.

What drove the creation of Dark Angel Medical and D.A.R.K Pocket lines?
Making the kits as simple and compact as possible. We thought by making them easy to use and easy to carry would encourage more people to carry a med kit with them.

Why “Made In America”?
We knew we would be getting nothing but top-rate gear going with an American company and knowing the quality of FirstSpear’s product line beforehand made that decision easy.

How did the relationship between Dark Angel and FirstSpear begin? Why did you ultimately choose FS to manufacture your nylon pockets?
We were actually referred to FS by a friend of ours in the industry and we were impressed by the warm reception we received as well as the genuine interest in helping us make our product better. The quality and timeliness of the work is second to none. Rapid prototyping and excellent communication make this an easy relationship and one we hope to continue for a very long time.

Anything new on the horizon from Dark Angel Medical and FS?
Oh, yes. We are continually striving to improve our products and expand our product line to meet the needs of everyone. A med kit is for anyone. Stay tuned.

D.A.R.K. Pocket

The D.A.R.K. Pocket, also known as the Custom 3rd Generation Pouch, is the load carrying component of Dark Angel Medical’s Direct Action Response Kit. Manufactured from 500D NIR Nylon, the D.A.R.K. Pocket was designed in conjunction with FirstSpear in order to provide an improved, efficient medical pouch.


The D.A.R.K. Pocket features a cap-style lid with a pull tap reminiscent of those found on early magazine pouches. A quick-deployment lanyard which is pulled up after the pouch has been opened allows for rapid deployment of the kit insert and minimizes effort with decreased fine motor dexterity. Built-in pull tabs on the back allow for attachment to MOLLE-compatible gear, and the pouch also features a color-keyed drain grommet in the bottom.


A built-in TQ pouch secures the TQ while protecting it from the elements. 1″ wide webbing on each side of the D.A.R.K. Pocket allows for additional pouches, or placement of equipment such as lightsticks, markers, or chest decompression needles. Also included on each side are trauma shear retention straps which keeps shears stowed during rapid movement.


D.A.R.K. Pockets can either be ordered individually, or outfitted with Dark Angel’s Direct Action Response Kit, which contains a well-rounded assortment of medical supplies in both Civ/LE and MilSpec configurations, and can be further upgraded and customized to better serve the professional end user.


D.A.R.K. Pockets are available in the following colors: Black, Coyote Brown, MutiCam, Ranger Green, and Wolf Grey.

Gen II D.A.R.K.

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

Dark Angel Medical, LLC’s website is back up and with it comes the Gen II D.A.R.K. (Direct Action Response Kit) featuring a new pouch manufactured by FirstSpear. The pouch was changed slightly from the original model. Now, the pouch is a single color with no red in order to be a “non-identifier” and a non-snag design based on feedback from deployed end-users. Not only is it a new design but it’s also a lower price than the original.

The Gen II D.A.R.K still features the same vacuum packed insert as the original.

Kit includes:
– 1x 1 pair Nitrile Gloves, size L
– 1x 1pair HALO Seals
– 1x NPA, 28 Fr
– 1x Israeli Emergency Bandage
– 1x QuikClot Combat Gauze LE
– 1x H&H PriMed Compressed Gauze
– 1x CAT-T Tourniquet

Dark Angel makes a good point, “Magazines go in magazine pouches and med kits go in med kit pouches! Confusing the two during a life-threatening situation would be less than ideal.” Simply under stress is their mantra.

Multicam, Coyote Brown, Ranger Green and Black. Each pouch also comes with a 1″ PVC Medic Square Patch with a subdued cross/medical pouch identifier.
