    Hello!

    Does somebody have experience with these kind of Tourniquets?

    Got one as a gift, but I'm not sure about it.

    Looks good in the Videos, but I can´t find any reviews etc. about it.



    Thank you!

    Not familiar with them. The webbing looks thin, to me (~2" seems to be the recommended width), and from what I have been told in the training I've had, ratcheting/mechanical tightening systems are sometimes too easy to overtighten. TCCC still recommends strongly both the CAT and SOFTT-W as the go-to models.

    The stability of this thing is pretty good, I think. Just tried it a few time, and maybe it doesn't look like that in the Video, but they look ok. How ever, I am still not sure about it. Normally I use CAT or SOFTT-W.

    Fast and effective on practice humans. I haven’t broken one yet.
