I’m new to carrying tourniquets as part of my EDC. The RMT is excellent quality and simple to use. I purchased a couple for my wife to carry in her Med-bag with the kids. We will purchase more.
Perfect and essential for any EDC loadout
This is one of, if not the best RMTs I’ve seen. The leather loop helps accomplish one-handed application on the often difficult location of the upper arm. I intend to practice even more so that I am better able to accomplish that task, as everyone should be able to apply a tourniquet with one hand. There are some good videos available from the site to view different methods, and I encourage everyone to review them and practice. The design that makes these so reliable and effective may make one-handed application require more practice than other Tourniquets. I fully intend to become proficient because this is a high quality RMT, and once snug, the ratchet makes it easy to complete the correct application. I highly recommend this RMT due to its high quality.
This is the place to get the items you need to be prepared to help during an emergency. Vdevgru does the research for you, if it's offered for sale it's the gear to have. Prompt shipping and well packaged. Will be purchasing more items in the future.
This is the best TQ out right now, it is very effective and you can use the same one you carry to train with, that is huge. Would definitely recommend over a CAT TQ.
