Just make sure you know what you're doing and how & when to use a tourniquet. It's not like the movies.
This is one item that you should have in each vehicle med kit, backpack, shooting/range bag, bug out bag, etc. (A good, solid compress should also be part of any kit!) Modern combat operations have completely debunked the myth of tourniquet use on heavy bleeding. Tourniquets have saved more lives on the battlefield than the average citizen will ever know. While none of us walking around on a day-to-day basis will probably ever see combat, we will probably see auto accidents, natural disasters, and maybe even a criminal shooting event. Being able to stop massive bleeding in seconds will be critical to saving life and limb. Tourniquets work. (BUT, learn how to use them!) There will always be those who say "I'll just use a belt or shoe lace or whatever I find laying around!" I sure hope I'm not the one you are trying to save!!
I only bought one initially to try it out. (I also got high vis orange.) I had it on my arm, one handed, in less than 45 seconds. Granted, I was lucid and not injured, but it is indeed simple in design. This will be key in a stressful situation!
My only recommendation would be to have something like a "family pack" where the more you buy, the cheaper they are, to encourage folks to get enough for various carry methods or for all members of the family. Remember, ideally, you want to use the equipment belonging to the "patient" on their injuries, not your own personal equipment. You may need it for YOU or a family member. That said, you can always carry spares.
Get one. Get five. This is one item that if you need it, you'll need it desperately.
