Quality Guaranteed

I only buy my TQs from reliable sources that I can guarantee the quality. I know that DAM uses real TQs from NAR and would never sell knock offs like you find on Amazon. these are the real deal and won't let you down when you're bleeding out.

Gen 7 CAT

State of the art must have item for IFAK.. Buy two... one black/orange for actual emergency use, and a blue trainer so you aren't wearing out your primary. MAKE your team practice with it.... remember.... their medical skills may be used on you, so make sure they train...
