Not much to say here. It is what it says it is. There where a rash of sellers selling cheap knockoffs of this product for a while so I was a little nervous about buying. But the ones on Amazon are for real. So a word of caution, if it's half the price of this one, it's a fake. Good product, good seller. I bought this for my dad for Fathers day. He is a LEO and I built it into a "blow out kit" along with a lot of other stuff I picked up of amazon.

I recommend you study the application of a tourniquet before using this device. They are a drastic measure.

The Combat Application Tourniquet, C-A-T, is an excellent, must have, and highly recommended addition to your first aid kit. The C-A-T Tourniquet has been researched and proven to be effective. When faced with a catastrophic injury to an arm or leg from a traumatic event with significant arterial bleeding then this tourniquet is a reliable and necessary piece of gear that has saved many lives. This tourniquet is fast and easy to apply one handed, under stressful conditions, and is combat proven on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan. Time is of the essence when faced with a serious injury with significant bleeding requiring immediate and effective control of bleeding. This tourniquet can literally be the difference between life and death.

Based upon research from the United States Army Institute of Surgical Research (USAISR) Battlefield Tourniquet Recommendations - Issued July 28, 2004:

"The Combat Application Tourniquet (C-A-T) was effective 100% of the time in quickly and effectively occluding arterial blood flow in both the upper and lower extremities in all trials...Pain scores (pinching and circumferential) were dramatically lower with the C-A-T than any other strap-style device evaluated."

Research after this 2004 study has come to the same conclusion. Hence, the Combat Application Tourniquet should be a part of any serious first aid kit or medic gear. Get this tourniquet and be prepared for the worst case scenario.

This is a great item that I believe everyone should have at least a tourniquet on their person for immediate use. I carry two on me while at work as a police officer, one in my med kit and one in a voodoo tactical pouch.

I use these professionally as a Paramedic and they are strong, and very effective. Bought one for backpacking and four wheeling, when I am far away from definitive care.

I now own two combat application tourniquets. As a carpenter I have a risk of dismemberment. I hope I will never have to use this product!

The tourniquet I received has a red tab on the Velcro strap and a white Velcro stay for the windlass. The photo clearly depicts an all black tourney. However, I actually like the white Velcro stay so I sharpie the time of application onto it. If anyone has ever relied on a CAT to save a life you know how effective they are. I believe they are an essential part of any trauma kit, military or civilian. These are perfect for one handed self application as well. One of these and a compress should live on the front of your vest/carrier, along with a "boo boo" bag including band-aids of different sizes, steri strips, 4x4s, IV tape and chloraprep. You can stick the rest of your IFAK in a rip away pouch on your pack or somewhere else with a SAM splint, tegraderm, asherman seal and such. But whatever, this is a CAT, it works REAL good.

that one should have in the pack. Easily applied with one hand. Would be good for holding a dressing.
I recommend that it be packed in the one hand configuration.
