D.A.R.K. (Direct Action Response Kit) has everything you need and nothing you don't to help yourself, your loved one, your teammate or a complete stranger in a "time-is-life" situation. In that type of situation, you don't need confusion, you need simplicity and that's what the D.A.R.K. is all about....SIMPLICITY UNDER STRESS.
The packaged, vacuum-sealed D.A.R.K. insert is roughly the size of two AR-15 mags placed on top of each other. The bag is a very durable 5-mil thick with quick-rip perforations at each corner with one side of the bag featuring a zip-style closure should the bag need to be resealed and stowed.
Complete Kit Includes:
We utilized a monochromatic color scheme with no red in order to be a "non-identifier" and a non-snag design based on feedback from our end-users in-theatre. Maintaining the same overall size as our 1st generation pouch, it has a redesigned cap-style lid with a pull tab similar to those found on early magazine pouches. The pouch has a built in TQ pouch for securing and protecting the TQ from the environments, 1" wide nylon webbing on each side for attachment of other pouches, placement of lightsticks, chest decompression needles, trauma shears or markers. It features a quick-deployment lanyard which is pulled up after the pouch has been opened. This allows a rapid deployment of the kit insert and minimizes effort with decreased fine motor detexerity. It also has built in pull-tabs on the back to weave into MOLLE channels and a color-keyed drain grommet in the bottom.
