    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!

    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).

    C.A.T 7

    Posted by Drahc on Nov 27th 2017

    You need one of these close at all times. It's incredibly simple to use with great quality. It will undoubtedly change the outcome of an emergency situation. Don't take a chance by not having one of these in your KIT close at hand.

    Made well and easy to use

    Posted by Jason Brehm on Jan 4th 2017

    The product is obviously designed with "simplicity under stress" in mind. I was impressed with the quality of the product and the ease of use. I will buy more for my other med kits. I am planning on taking a training course with Dark Angel. Great Company to work with. I have really been happy with all the med gear I have purchased.

    CAT Tourniquet

    Posted by Unknown on Aug 24th 2016

    I had to use tourniquets twice in my 43-year police/military/contractor career (on others). Now I keep three with one on my duty belt, one on my Tac vest and one on an additional kit in my SUV.

    Highly recommend Dark Angel to anyone in need of trauma products. I used this company to assemble a complete IFAKS kit. Easy order process, fast shipping, and what I ordered is EXACTLY what was delivered. Thanks - Mike

    Great product from a GREAT company!!

    Posted by Jim Yantosca Jr. on Jun 13th 2016

    I had the pleasure of taking a course with Kerry last summer and learning from him first hand what makes a quality tourniquet and how they have evolved. This latest generation is outstanding quality, beware cheap knockoffs and get the stuff that your life and the lives of others may depend on from Kerry and Dark Angel Medical!!
