pros: Versus the cat and sof-ts, *these are VERY lightweight, ridiculously so. *Can get just as tight, and in my opinion, tighter. *Requires less fine motorskills, so CAN be faster to apply when you're nervous, vs fumbling with velcro and tabs. *This has no moving parts. *And, can be applied one handed proficiently,- you wrap it around with no pressure, and then start stretching it, and it will stick to itself, and hold- start wrapping tighter. *Very unlike cat's and soft-t's, where you're a dumb*ss if you never took it out of it's wrapping, because they require preparation to be applied. These, do not.Read more ›

Pair that with the versatility -- can be used to make a compression bandage with a gauze pad, a sling, assist with splints, and so on. You can't go wrong.
The 1 and 2 star reviews are incredibly rediculous. It can't hold an ice pack, but does work as a tourniquet? Well no duh! It's a tourniquet, not an ice pack holder. It's not meant to hold an ice pack.
As for the expiration date, all medical devices and appliances have an expiration date. Yes that means CAT-Ts and everything else too. Even simple cloth bandages have expiration dates.
UPDATE after doing a little more research and some learning.
There is a HUGE negative for this product though. It can apply too much pressure and cause more limb damage. In comparisonn to losing your life though, I'd say it might be a fair trade... BUT I'd rather use something liek a Soft-t or Cat-T even because of the greater control. However if money is an issue, then this is better than nothing, and I'd rather lose an additional six inches of my leg than my life. But again, if you can get a better option do so.
Fortunately though, unless you're out in the boonies, EMS is not that far out so you'll likely be in a hospital before any permanent nerve damage can occur. If out hiking, or if you live in the country where it might take a half hour for an ambulance to show up, you'd be much better served with a better product.
This is an ok solution for a cash strapped PD that has the option of these or essentially nothing.
