Description

The R.A.T.S. (Rapid Application Tourniquet System) was designed based on feedback from the battlefield where soldiers required a tourniquet that could be easily applied and offered a low profile carry. The tourniquet is already in use around the world by varrying SOF elements and has been proven on the battlefield. The R.A.T.S. can fit just about anywhere on your kit and can be quickly applied to an extremity using one hand.

  • 1/2″ Flat Bungee Cord quickly stops the bleeding
  • Low vis carry profile
  • Half the price of traditional tourniquets
  • Robust locking system
  • Made in the USA

R.A.T.S. FAQ:

Q: The band looks very thin. Will it cause tissue damage?
A: No. The R.A.T.S. tourniquet is designed to expand with tissue as it swells from injury. Traditional nylon tourniquets cannot accommodate the swelling tissue, and can potentially cause damage. The elastic used in the R.A.T.S. will more effectively allow for tissue expansion without the pressure of the tourniquet increasing.

Q: The band is not as wide as a standard tourniquet. Will it stop heavy femoral bleeds?
A: Yes. The R.A.T.S. measures at .5” wide. The repetition of wraps is so effective because it functions in principle like “tandem tourniquet placement”.

Q: Is this TCCC approved?
A: TCCC does not approve or deny any medical equipment for the military as it is no longer a function of the committee. Authority lies with the medical director of each area or jurisdiction. With that said, the R.A.T.S. is currently undergoing evaluation by TCCC. So far voting members of TCCC have tested and recommended the R.A.T.S. for use.

Q: Can this be used on children and K9s?
A: Yes. The design of the R.A.T.S. allows for it to be used on smaller extremities where as current issued tourniquets, to include the CAT, SOF-T, and METTs, do not.

Q: Who currently uses the R.A.T.S.?
A: Many teams in the SOF community, DOD, and LE.
