The SWAT-Tourniquet (http://www.redflarekits.com/pc/4912/cl/SWAT+Tactical+Tourniquet) is a unique and multipurpose dressing. Its name provides a description for usage Stretch, Wrap, and Tuck, but also the communities for whom it was developed - military and civilian Special Weapons and Tactics teams. These teams operate in an environment that has a high incidence of penetrating trauma, and most (two-thirds) of preventable deaths in the operational environment are from extremity bleeding.

The SWAT-Tourniquet (http://www.redflarekits.com/pc/4912/cl/SWAT+Tactical+Tourniquet) allows a more rapid means to control extremity bleeding and allows application higher into the groin and axilla than other tourniquets. Its ease of application is one of its greatest benefits; individuals can effectively apply it in seconds with little to no prior training. At a third of the cost and weight of other combat used tourniquets, this tourniquet should find its way forward with every tactical operator.

Weight = 95 grams or 0.21 lbs

For the record, I buy these from a local vendor. However, they are simply the best, easy to use, one handed tourniquet system. Our guys are carrying them in their patrol jumpsuits as they are simple to use and work great.

Highly, highly recommend them for everyday and when needed use.

Thanks Morris!
They are also tiny when folded, about twice the size of a matchbox.
