Noted as the best prehospital tourniquet in the February 2008 supplement of The Journal of Trauma

The patented C-A-T® is a true one-handed tourniquet proven to be 100% effective by the U.S. Army’s Institute of Surgical Research. Tests proved that the C-A-T® completely occluded blood flow of an extremity in the event of a traumatic wound with significant hemorrhage.

The C-A-T® utilizes a durable windlass system with a patented free-moving internal band providing true circumferential pressure to the extremity. Once adequately tightened, bleeding will cease and the windlass is locked into place. A hook and loop windlass retention strap is then applied, securing the windlass to maintain pressure during casualty evacuation. The C-A-T®’s unique dual securing system avoids the use of screws and clips which can become difficult to operate under survival stress or where fine motor skills are compromised.

The patented Combat Application Tourniquet® (C-A-T®) featuring the proprietary red tip design and the mechanical advantage of a band within a band has been the Official Tourniquet of the U.S. Army since 2005. The innovations in the C-A-T® are protected by U.S. Patent Nos. 7,842,067 and 7,892,253.

This product would get a 5-star review if it came with some information on how to properly use the C-A-T. The C-A-T is an item I helped to develop training materials for when I worked as an Army civilian and I also saw plenty of training materials from the C-A-T creator, both written and format. Want to help people be prepared? Provide appropriate training and education on the product. Note from Infidel Staff: We offer this training in the Driven DVD. You can also find it readily available on YouTube.

One of the easiest tourniquets I've ever used. I recommend that everyone put one in their fist aid bag and carry one where they can reach it with either hand.

A must have for anytime you go shooting. An excellent tourniquet that belongs in your range bag, and bug-out bag. You are crazy to go shooting without one.
