R.A.T.S – Rapid Application Tourniquet – A solid vulcanized rubber core with a nylon sheath combined with a unique locking mechanism make this a simple and incredibly fast tourniquet to apply to self or others. The RATS hallmark is use under stress.
The carnage and trauma that resulted from the Boston Marathon bombings showed that a tourniquet doesn’t just save lives and limbs on the battlefield. RATS is a fast, simple, inexpensive, livesaving tool that any first-responder should have at his or her disposal to halt the loss of blood.
Its simple design, which utilizes successive wraps to achieve the right width for good compression, makes RATS faster than a standard-issue tourniquet, and speed equates to life when dealing with blood loss. It can even be applied with one hand.

Elegantly simple design, yet effective...
I own several Combat Application Tourniquets (CAT) and probably always will, but the RATS product is much less cumbersome, simple in design and application, and EFFECTIVE. The rubber inside is very resilient, and the outer sheathing seems like it will hold up well to the abrasion that comes from being strapped to one's kit for a long time. I will likely buy at least one or two more, but I wish they would make one in FDE, Coyote, tan, etc.
I have not used it yet.
I will say it is well made and easy to put on.
I purchased 3 of them, one to carry while working (police) and one for each of my personal vehicles.
You never know when you may have to use it.
