    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

    Posted by Sturminator on Oct 5th 2020

    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...

    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.

    I attended one of the Dark Angel classes and after training with several tourniquets, this is the one I now have with me at all times. Easy to use and effective.

    Best tourniquet I've used

    Posted by Mike Drake on May 6th 2018

    Replaced my older SOFTT-W with this tourniquet after attending the dark angel DART class. Fast to deploy easy to apply. I will definitely be ordering more in the future.

    Very well thought out

    Posted by R on Jan 17th 2018

    While I can say that I've thankfully never have had to use it the CAT tourniquet is a fantastic piece of kit. The sheer wide ranging uses of a tourniquet, spanning from venom control to arterial bleeding makes it a crucial piece that is often pasted over. Once you get this particular example in hand it's pretty evident that the designers tried to put as many useful and time saving features into the design while also making it simple enough that a novice or bystander could preform or assist with it's deployment. This is a must have piece kit, especially if you carry a firearm (professionally or personally).
