Im by no means an expert on tourniquets, but make sure you get a real one and not a fake. The SkinnyMedic guy in the video below indicates there are a lot of fake TQs on the market. STOP Buying Fake CAT Tourniquets The video is a little light on determining real from fake.

Although I was trained in my FA class to make a TQ in the field, including the windlass, thats difficult to apply to ones self -- possibly down to one hand, possibly not thinking clearly through pain and shock...

There are a lot of TQs available on Amazon. Is the TQ at: CAT Combat Application Tourniquet - GEN 7 (Gray Time-stamp) , recommended?

What brand name is recommended?
