I am a Healthcare Army; commonly refered to as a 'Combat Medic'. We train on these things until we can apply them on ourselves single-handedly in under two minutes, faster on another person. In optimal (classroom) trials we average under thirty seconds to proper placement.
The CAT is an excellent and simple product of good quality and very effective for the job it was created for. However, as easy and effective as this tourniquet is; it's also just a tool. If purchasing this tool for yourself be absolutely sure that you know HOW to use it and how to know you've used it RIGHT. Application of the CAT is simple, but so is messing up and when you NEED a tourniquet, there's no time to read the instructions.
If you're purchasing this for a friend, check to make sure they also understand how to use it and if purchasing this for a soldier/airman/sailor/marrine/combatant/non-combatant overseas in hostile areas... consider sending more. Thank you.

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.

We use these in the Army both overseas and during training. On all 3 of my deployments, 2 to Iraq, 1 to afghanistan, I personally have had to use the CAT on real world, severely wounded coalition soldiers and civilians. I now keep several of these in my personal first aid kits, my vehicle, my Kelty backpack and my pocket if I believe I'm doing something particularly dangerous. It's light weight, easy to use, and well made so what's the excuse not to have one?

I know a guy who took a 7.62x54R FMJ from a PKM in Afghanistan. It hit him just above the left knee and went right through to the other side. He was able to use the tourniquet on himself while the rest of his team returned fire.

My understanding is that in his wild frenzy to save his own life, he tightened it enough to then proceed to break his femur, an impressive feat, no doubt. That said, it said his life by keeping more blood inside his body than out while he awaited evac.

So it works. We know that much.

Having used this tourniquet while deployed in Iraq, I can honestly say it works. Some that we used worked a little better, but the CAT was easy and reliable. Something that makes a good tool when trying to save someone's life. Using it as an outdoor/woodsman's tourniquet might be stretching it a little. A bit overkill I think. But it's certainly useful and does what it claims.

I have not been able to use it and I honestly hope that I never will. It arrived on time in good condition and good packaging. It seems like a good tourniquet that will complete the job.

Military grade CAT with instructions. This is the real deal! The price point is right, and the equipment is right. I would recommend this item.

This or the SOF tourniquet is a key component in all of our aid kits, at home, in vehicles, in back pack, I keep a tourniquet and some quality trauma dressings handy always-sometimes help is a long way off. . .
