RATS Tourniquet American Board of Tactical Medicine Review: MSRP 14.95

The RATS Tourniquet or Rapid Application Tourniquet System came to our attention a couple of years ago. The ABTM was contacted by the manufacturer to perform a review of the product. Upon review, we find that the tourniquet does indeed stop bleeding as advertised. What was the real surprise was the ease and rapidity of the application of the product. The product is very small and can be carried routinely in your pocket even when off duty. It enables you to carry a real tourniquet with you or even two when you’re on duty or carrying off duty. You may very well need both.

Our in house test showed that the tourniquet takes a little of trial and error until you get comfortable applying it. When you are comfortable, however, it goes on REALLY FAST. No moving parts to break and it’s super durable.

Make sure you practice with this or any other tourniquet regularly. This is a perishable skill. You need to have this application really dialed in before you expect it to be deployed with any real efficacy. Regardless, this is a superior product.
