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 EXACTLY like we use in the Air Force ATSO gear. The tourniquet is awesome -- you can actually save a life and, ironically, save a limb with this. This tourniquet cuts off the blood flow to a traumatized limb, which saves the life of the person. But it doesn't damage the tissue. So, quite often, once the troop arrives at the trauma center, they can fix the limb, re-establish bloodflow and save the limb that was injured. This has saved numerous lives in OEF / OIF, and has saved limbs or at least maximized what could be saved. It's expensive, but worth it for your car / home emergency kit.

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 understand standard issue for most Army units. We've issued to each officer along with QuikClot & OALES in a Maxpidetion bail out bag. About the best we can do for them. Hope they never need the items.

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!

This is incredibly useful and everyone should have at least 2. One in your pocket or bag, one in the car.

Heck, get more than that. You can never go wrong with life-saving equipment.

The new version of the CAT includes the white strip for writing down the time of use. This is especially necessary, so as not to even APPROACH the 4-hour time-limit regarding blood poisoning. That is what we consider a "bad thing"

Get some for family, friends, extras. Whatever you need to. Anyone who thinks you should bleed out instead, just ignore them, and keep yourself and your loved-ones safe.
