    Hi all - anyone have experience with Dark Angel Medical's AARK pack? It's an acronym for Adventure And Recreation Kit apparently. At first glance this seems like my ideal daypack. Gray, easy access to first aid, concealed carry/ccw pocket, admin/organization area, hydration compatible but not required, small enough for true EDC, etc. I'd love to hear about someone's experience with it before shelling out $130.

    No direct experience, but The AARK looks like a mostly clone of the Grey Ghost Gear Stealth pack.

    I have had a GGG Stealth for about four years. I would not recommend it for EDC.
    . Too small, as it barely fits an iPad
    . Long straps designed for body armor, not Starbucks
    . Concealed carry pocket was a mess, way too difficult to access in a hurry

    I do like the looks for the Boston blow out type pouch on the AARK... That would improve the GGG version with more utility.
