Still haven't got it!
This is my second TQ of this style and I love the size for EDC and stashing places. I also use CAT T style TQs and I find them both valuable tools.
They really undersell the vulcanized rubber.
I work for a large So. Cal PD that has strict uniform guidelines. I needed t tourniquet that could be stuffed in the trauma plate pocket area of my vest carrier (behind plate of course) without causing bulk. Rapid fit the Bill.
The Rapid tourniquet is a must have addition to your every day carry. I wrap them through my belt loops and cover the band with my belt to provide a low vis method of carry regardless of my level of dress. The options of black or tan helps to blend with your various belts. For those occasions when this method doesn’t work, the tourniquet compacts down small enough to fit in a pocket or bag.
Bottom line, a tourniquet is a must have, and the Rapid tourniquet affords a variety of carry options. Combine this with the ease of use and you can’t go wrong.
