Blue Force Gear Tourniquet NOW! Pouch MOLLE Mounted Helium Whisper w/ CAT tourniquet
The Tourniquet NOW!™ Pouch is the perfect balance between speed and protection, in a platform that allows you to add a tourniquet for your everyday carry. The TQ Pouch gives you superior protection yet quick access to your CAT or other similarly sized tourniquets. In line with our other medical equipment, such as the Trauma Kit NOW!™ and the Micro TKN™ – the Tourniquet NOW!™ Pouch can be accessed with one hand (or even a single finger) - simply pull the tab down and remove the tourniquet.
Previously, you had to decide between over-built flapped or zippered pouches, hard ‘open top’ pouches, or having your tourniquet exposed with rubber bands. The first option can become too complicated or time consuming, searching for a zipper pull. – time that cannot be afforded when seconds is the difference in survival. Exposed tourniquets will experience faster degradation from UV rays, water, sand and debris.
The Tourniquet NOW! Pouch starts with the Helium Whisper® MOLLE attachment system made of ULTRAcomp® - a battle proven, high performance laminate. This creates a small and light yet secure MOLLE attachment for the Pouch on any MOLLE warbelt, plate carrier, pack, or any other platform. The tourniquet fits inside an elastic keeper attached to the lid that is then folded up and secured on the top with a hook and loop field. Lastly a BLIP – or Ball Loaded Index Point makes for the perfect ‘pull’ with gloved, wet, or bloody hands.
