    Someone with more experience is welcome to make corrections.
    It's just like a large bike inner tube that has been cut open.
    It works fine on either a leg or an arm.It gets really tight.
    It can be a bit tricky to apply one handed on your own arm though but it can be done with enough practice.
    The CAT is probably better and faster for a one handed self applied application.





    You can use it as an arm sling or even just to old an ice pack in place as well.
    Many uses for such a compact product.

    Applying it to your arm one handed? Are you shooting up again?

    I have 3 SWAT T's, might make a decent pressure bandage at best.

    Hoping CAVMEDIC will post here as that dude is legit, pretty sure his carry is a TK4 only, that dude has seen it all and that should say a lot.

    Not that type of tourniquet!
    The SWAT-T is basically similar to the little rubber tourniquets used to start IVs though, just much larger.

    Hell I am a EMT, I was referring to someone that has seen real deal mass cas, a couple hard tours followed by the rough streets of Indy is a huge difference then a rural area or part time/volunteer.

    You can see some horrific stuff in rural areas.Like hunting accidents (leg blown off by 00 buckshot), chainsaw accidents, car crashing at high speed into big heavy farming equipement or what have you.

    Training and Mindset will serve well even if you don't have a trauma kit. It certainly helps to have the right equipment available, but knowing how to improvise equipment from common materials means you will never be caught without it.
    Praise the Lord, and pass the ammunition!

    I admit, much more than just basic first aid is a serious weakness for me. I have had basic firat aid training and have had cpr training (both cert's have expired), but will be looking for some training in this area very soon. I am becoming more of a believer that if you are going to carry a gun everyday, you should also carry some life saving items and skills to use them. The life you save might be your own
