    I had the opportunity to use the TMT and SOFT-T (or SOF-T Wide?) along with the latest CATs last October on simulated arterial bleed trauma dummies and uninjured roleplayers. I was impressed with both, despite my dislike of the older SOF-T’s. I really liked the TMT. I still really like CATs, although in live humans I sometimes have difficulty gaining hemorrhage control in certain patients.

    I’ve been extremely unimpressed by any elastic tourniquet that I’ve messed with.

    When I look at people carrying elastic TQ's, I get mildly disgusted. Especially when they aren't just internet commandoes and may need to use those on someone else.

    True.

    They are not very much like your average combatant out running around getting a traumatic bleed.

    Their arterial system is also non anatomically connected to their venous system in that extremity and may require a TQ both above and below the bleed.

    Yeah. CATs work well for Military aged and reasonably fit people.

    RATS, SWAT-T? Not my go to, but something is better than nothing. I might look at a few of the new approved ones, but I don't see replacing my CAT or SOFFT-W TQ's anytime soon.

    Yes, specifically those two. Something MAY be better than nothing, but relying on something of a known lesser quality may not be a good way to go.
