Product Description

The Red Tip TechnologyTM is exclusive to the North American Brand. The C-A-T® is a true one-handed tourniquet proven to be 100% effective by the U.S. Armys Institute of Surgical Research. Tests proved that the C-A-T® completely occluded blood flow of an extremity in the event of a traumatic wound with significant hemorrhage. The C-A-T® utilizes a durable windlass system with a free-moving internal band providing true circumferential pressure to the extremity. Once adequately tightened, bleeding will cease and the windlass is locked into place. A Velcro® strap is then applied, securing the windlass to maintain pressure during casualty evacuation. The C-A-T®s unique dual securing system avoids the use of screws and clips which can become difficult to operate under survival stress or where fine motor skills are compromised. New Features include a Windlass Rod 2X as strong with increased diameter and improved grip, Re-enforced Windlass Clip & highly visible Security Tab with writable area to record the time of application, and Red elliptical tip to assist user in locating and threading during application.

I have doubts this is the same North American Rescue brand I was issued in the Army. There was no tag to write the time/date on, and the instructions were the work of a kindergarten class. It holds up to pressure good though, so even if it turns out to be an imposter brand, I would still but again for the price.

The one I received was a cheep chines counterfeit. You do not want to go cheep on a piece of equipment that your life or the lives of your loved ones may have to count on. Just buy the product direct from American Rescues and avoid the risk of getting a counterfeit item that will fail to work at a critical time.
If you go direct to North American Rescues website you can read that there has been a counterfeiting problem of this product. What angers me is that someone would be so greedy and immoral as to counterfeit life saving equipment, a T-shirt or a handbag who care but something that will kill someone if it fails, which this one will, do to its cheep flimsy construction, how can you justify counterfeiting an item like this. You can also go to the FDA's website to see counterfeit warnings, google it.

I have been issued legitimate NAR CAT tourniquets in the past, and this (I'm fairly certain) is not one. This is misleadingly advertised to make you think this is made by NAR, but in fact appears to be manufactured by "Phil Durango," whoever that is...Buy a real one somewhere else. Don't stake your life on this thing.

My wife and I completed a trauma class and ordered a tourniquet. This came and was about 1/2 the cost of the dealer cost we could have used form the class. These were the same tourniquets the class offered. I've since ordered 2 more.

There's not too much to say about a tourniquet. I've practiced with these, and found that they work fine, and one handed application is fairly easy. My only complaint is the method used to secure the windlass after tightening. I think the method found on the SOF-T is a better design, though less simple. In the end, these tourniquets have been field proven to do the job and having either this or the SOF-T is better than the tourniquet you don't have.

I don't have first hand knowledge using this product but a Sergeant in my police dept. used this product to save the life of a teen who fell off a moving train and severed a leg. I carry mine in my go bag but C-A-T easily fits in pant cargo pocket or on vest. I think that every police officer should carry this product with them. Period.

Nice tourniquet, but the gen 2 is a bit better. In an emergency these are much better than trying to secure an appendage with a belt, shoelace, rope, or whatever cord you have lying around.

This is the third CAT I've purchased. This model has improvements from the first ones I bought and used. Well worth the money!
