The Rapid Application Tourniquet System (R.A.T.S. U.S. Pat. No. 9,168,044) is the fastest tourniquet on the market and is used to stop massive hemorrhaging due to trauma. The Rapid Tourniquet uses a solid elastic core of proprietary material with a polyester sheath, combined with a patented locking mechanism to make an incredibly fast tourniquet to apply to self or others. No other tourniquet compares to the Rapid when being used under stress in terms of time or ease of use.

I train bjj and conceal carry. I am way more likely to need or assist in first aid than self defense. If you train to take one you need to train to save one!
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.
