I work in law enforcement. I like to keep a spare tourniquet in my cargo pocket along with the one on my belt. The RATs tourniquet is really easy to use an the fit and finish is great. 100% recommend this product to any first responder, Leo, military
I am a HUGE proponent of your TQ!!! I have demonstrated over and over again how quickly your RATs TQ can be applied at numerous STOP THE BLEED CLASSES.
I have even demonstrated how quickly your RATs TQ works at numerous tactical firearms courses I have been in. In one of the courses of fire(Rifle Manipulation Class), I was tapped on the left shoulder. Instructor told me my left arm was hit and that I had to get a TQ on it ASAP. I had ONLY my right hand/arm to work with. As I tried to get my CAT7 out and deployed, the Velcro got attached to itself, even though it was properly staged. With that said, trying to get it un-Velcroed from itself with only my right hand was taking too much time and I threw it down and had my RATs TQ out and on in SECONDS!!! That was the day I knew how AWESOME your RATs TQ was!!!
Recently did a post to a group, stating that the RATs was by far the BEST and FASTEST self applied TQ hands down, then came the CAT7, and in last place was the SOFT W. Don’t get me wrong, I have and use ALL of those tourniquets, but the RATs is by far the FASTEST and EASIEST to self apply with IMMEDIATE BLOOD stoppage to the limb.
Perfect tool in many ways and I like it a lot because it can be used on children as well as animals.
I decided the RATs was the best option for my needs in a general civilian trauma kit because it's intuitive to use under stress with limited training. It's inexpensive, quick, and versatile for unpredictable instances where professional help is usually close by. The cost allows me to have more of them on hand.
