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. Tests proved that the C-A-T® completely occluded blood flow of an extremity in the event of a traumatic wound with significant hemorrhage.

The C-A-T® utilizes a durable windlass system with a patented free-moving internal band providing true circumferential pressure to the extremity. Once adequately tightened, bleeding will cease and the windlass is locked into place. A hook and loop windlass retention strap is then applied, securing the windlass to maintain pressure during casualty evacuation. The C-A-T®’s unique dual securing system avoids the use of screws and clips which can become difficult to operate under survival stress or where fine motor skills are compromised.
The patented Combat Application Tourniquet® (C-A-T®) featuring the proprietary red tip design and the mechanical advantage of a band within a band has been the Official Tourniquet of the U.S. Army since 2005. The innovations in the C-A-T® are protected by U.S. Patent Nos. 7,842,067 and 7,892,253.

Glad to finally have a tourniquet in my EDC gear. Compact and very easy to install and operate.

If anyone has watched any of Brian’s videos on Trauma first aid or the importance of knowing counterfeit tourniquets, you’ll understand the importance of getting a North American Recue CAT TQ. This TQ exudes quality.

Finally added this extra CAT for my brothers EDC, one never knows what or when something bad happens that this could save me or someone else’s life. My Wind River Trauma Kit came with two, bought an extra for my brother who purchased his first hand gun. I really enjoy Mountain Man’s video’s for all their products on YouTube Thank You Mountain Man!
