No longer the last resort, the Gen 7 CAT is the most widely-fielded tourniquet in combat theatres. Quick, effective and easy to apply with one or both hands. Single-Use only. Length: 6.5" Width: 2.4" Weight: 2.7 oz. From the North American Rescue website: "The C-A-T® GEN 7 has a single routing buckle system that (1) allows for extremely fast application and effective slack removal (2) Simplified training with single protocol directions for all applications. 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.
C-A-T® Gen 7 Requirements Driven Enhancements:
Single Routing Buckle
- Faster application and effective slack removal resulting in decreased blood loss and fewer windlass turns to achieve arterial occlusion
- Simplified training with single protocol directions for all applications
- Increased diameter for enhanced strength
- Aggressive ribbing for improved grip
- Bilateral beveled entry for rapid windlass lock
- Bilateral buttress for added strength
- Sonic welded to clip for constant contact
- Color changed to Gray for tactical considerations (Black C-A-T Only)
- Reinforced, beveled contact bar maintains the plate's integrity and decreases skin pinching"
Product arrived quickly. Full communication on eta’s and what to expect. My edc trauma kit is incredible as well. Love these DAM (Dark angel medical) things
I was a Combat Medic for 35 years in the military. I have to use the CAT TOURNIQUET from your kit at a motorcycle accident. Your medical equipment is awesome.
First time buyer at Dark angel medical, I must say top of the products, I will definitely be purchasing more from Dark angel medical. Thank you !
I liked the CAT-7 so much I had ordered 4 more. I have the blue training one that I use to train others and I had ordered what I needed from DARK Angel Medical so that to leave one in 3 vehicles.
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.
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...
I bought 3 recently. One for the range bag, one for the car and one for the house. A must have!!
Great product, fantastic service
I have 6 - I have them everywhere - great product - great customer service by Dark Angel Medical
2nd TQ from Dark Angel. Great quality!
Looks to be made of quality material. Only experience is in training, Hope it's a long time before I ever have to use it.
This is my fourth CAT from Dark Angel Medical and is the central part of my competitive pistol med kit. Don’t leave home without one!
