A Quality Bandage
After seeing one of these bandages demonstrated during my most recent Combat Life Saver course, I knew I had to have a few in my own kit. This is a high-quality and versatile bandage and well worth the price.
Saw it in action. It works.
Was at recent training involving shooting on steel. One of the participants was struck with a good sized chunk of an FMJ round. The impact was into his right bicep. The bleeding started immediately and did not appear superficial. One of the instructors, a been-there-done-that guy who is squared away, grabbed his personal med bag and pulled out one of these bandages.
The wound was producing a fair amount of flowing blood when this bandage was applied. The bleeding immediately stopped and the bandage was rock solid and quick to apply.
EMS transported the injured person. Upon arrival at the hospital, the doctors noted how high speed and very well designed this bandage was.
To summarize, IT WORKED.
For the price I just ordered a dozen. One for each BOB and each member on my tactical team.
