Gear Profile: Dark Angel Medical

Gear Profile: Dark Angel Medical

Hey folks. DA here. I wanted to take a minute and talk to you all about some of the gear I use in my books. Whenever possible, I try to use “real-world” gear for the characters.  This includes weapons, equipment, blades, and medical gear.

When I was writing the Ragnarok Rising Saga, I began researching combat medical kits and that led me to Kerry “Pocket Doc” Davis and Dark Angel Medical. He was a combat medic who’d served his country with both honor and distinction. Even better, he was a combat medic who founded his own company, specializing in high-end medical kits for First Responders, Military, and Civilian use. When I began reading about the kits, I knew I was in the right place.

I reached out to Kerry, this would have been late in 2012, right after the first Ragnarok Rising book came out. I asked some direct questions about treating wounds, survivability of certain wounds and injuries, and recovery time. I also asked about battlefield techniques used to treat these wounds. Kerry was more than happy to help by sharing his time, energy, and expertise. I can honestly say, the books would have been very different without him. That’s why you see characters carrying those kits in my other books. Apex Predator, Lakeview Man, and Code Name: Wild Hunt. Characters in those books will carry nothing else.

When Kerry found out I was in law enforcement, he sent me a medical kit, known as a DARK kit, or Direct Action Response Kit. He wanted me to have a kit that could save my life or the lives of anyone around me. I carried that kit through the rest of my career in law enforcement. Hell, I still carry it.

Dark Angel Medical is an amazing company. Not only do they have these incredible life-saving kits, but they also will teach you to use them. In these uncertain times, learning basic first-aid or even how to treat a traumatic wound could save a life. It might even save your own life.

Kerry and the amazing folks at Dark Angel Medical have dedicated their lives to saving people. They have kits to fit any need or role. From trauma kits to IFAK packs to vehicle first-aid kits, they’ve got you covered. I don’t leave the house without one. I keep one in my vehicle all the time. When I was on duty as a cop, I had one either on my belt or in my pack at all times. The life you save might very well be your own.

You might find yourself walking your dog and see someone fall and hit their head. You could be driving home and either find yourself involved in or witnessing a bad accident. You could even find yourself in a situation in your own home with a fall or a nasty cut. My point is, you never know when you need a kit right now and 911 is still several minutes away. If you live in a rural area, 911 might be a long time coming. Get a kit and learn to use it. It could be a loved one whose life you save.

Go to and find the kit that’s right for you. Let’s face it, we all have times when we need more than just a band-aid and some ointment. These kits are for the best of us in the worst of times. We’ve all been there. A medical kit is kind of like a parachute. It’s better to have one and not need it than need it and not have it. Because if you need it and don’t have it, you might never need it again.

Simplicity Under Stress. That’s their motto. When seconds count, keep it simple and save a life. These are the best kits available. Right now, you can use Coupon Code FALL20 to get 20% off your order.
