hit. When we unpacked the Quikclot it became clear that the product was far too large to fit in the wound (it's about the size of a bean bag used in
the game Corn Hole), so we placed it on top of the opening and then wrapped it tightly with an Israeli Battle Dressing (IBD).
This stopped the bleeding until I could get to the ER. When the Dr. took off the IBD, the 'bean bag' fell away and the wound immediately started bleeding again. It was apparent to the ER doctor that the IBD was the only thing doing the work to stop the bleeding.
In my observation, the quikclot sponge was a waste of money, and I certainly won't trust it again especially on arterial or blood vessel cuts.
My employee, who is also a 3 tour veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan, agrees. He suggests the Hemostatic powder instead of the sponge. The powder is used by the military and is far more effective as it fills any wound configuration.
Like many Amazon shoppers, I rely on reviews when buying products like this. So please do not give a product a five star review if you've never used it!
I'm buying Celox Hemostatic Agent in 2g packets and one IBD for each med kit. (I hope I will never have to review that item!)
Our Crisis Casualty Care (TC3) Instructor walked us through the improvements the Quik Clot folks have made over the years. The product is well known, widely used, and credited for being a potentially life-saving yet inexpensive item to have in your range bag, bug-out emergency bag, 1st aid bag, etc.
If you run with scissors, flirt with danger, or want to be prepared - keep this stuff handy.
I noticed that (as they do with so many items) Amazon also offered the "More Buying Choices" and showed a reduced price for USED Quik-Clot.
...Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not ashamed to cut costs, use coupons, take advantage of my PRIME membership, or anything else I can do to save money. But, (and I am NOT speaking from experience) I would say you should pay a little extra and ignore the USED Quik-Clot. But hey, that's just me.
No matter what:
- This is good (might be life-saving) stuff to have around. The price is right - don't leave home without it.
I've injured myself in the past a few times when a QuikClot would have come in handy. And I've also assisted others who I wish had one of these available. If you've ever stopped to help someone in a bad auto accident you'll know exactly what I mean.
Now I keep one in my garage, one in each of our cars, and I also carry one when on long bicycle rides. The farther away you are from medical assistance, the more important one of these becomes. It's a cheap price to pay to save someone's life--or maybe even your own.

Beware, this sponge DOES EXPIRE so monitor it and set a reminder for yourself when you have to replace it.
1) Expiry date is for May 2016 (comes vacuum sealed). I'm assuming once double vacuum sealed it will last even longer!
2) The real deal. Military grade for civilians.
3) Large enough to cover most major wounds, if you're bleeding from an area larger than this than you can kiss your butt goodbye anyways!
4) Relatively compact and can fit in perfectly in a maxpedition FR-1 medical pouches
1) A little pricey, but for its potential to save a life I suppose its not that big of a deal.
