Särmä TST Tourniquet pouch
An extremely simple tourniquet pouch, made from extremely strong military webbing with a quick and easy to use velcro flap. A true "Keep It Simple, Stupid" design, it doesn´t get much more simple and functional than this. Fits the most common military tourniquets (CAT, SOF-T etc.). Finnish MILSPEC quality!
FirstCare Emergency Bandage
The Israeli Emergency Bandage is something of a standard in "the industry", everybody knows it. These are pretty much the best tactical first aid dressings in the world, easy to use and extremely effective.
Kaaos Gear Tear-off IFAK
A standard size IFAK, designed and made to measure to fit exactly the medical gear issued to Finnish SF personnel. Tear-off design, the pouh can be quickly ripped off it´s mount for very easy access to the contents. Proper Finnish made quality gear!
Särmä TST Medical patch
A small velcro patch indicating the presence of medical supplies or aid. Velcro attachment for pouches, packs and clothing. Size 4 x 4 cm. The full colour version also doubles up as a Swiss flag!
TacMed SOF-T Tourniquet
A tourniquet is a must have piece for any first aid kit. The The SOF Tactical tourniquet by TacMed excels in extreme reliability and strength. The machined aluminium hardware can take a beating and works flawlessly in any temperature and climate.
Sharkmed Tactical Survival Blanket
A good quality aluminium foil "space blanket". Green on the outside, silver on the inside. A very important piece in any first aid kit, these very same blankets are also used by the Finnish military.
Piranha Trauma Shears
Trauma shears are an essential piece of any medical kit, these cut through clothing, gear, leather and even zippers, but also finer stuff such as gauze. Safety tip, ergonomical and grippy handles with rubber coating, the Piranha Trauma Shears are a real fine example of trauma shears. The many fine and thought out details make these a tad better than most cheaper alternatives.
Särmä TST IFAK pouch
A zippered clam shell style medical pouch designed to fit the Finnish issue IFAK setup, plus some additional medical supplies. Also functions as an advanced utility pouch if you need that extra level of organizing options.
QuikClot Combat Gauze Z-fold
Hemostatic gauze is an excellent addition to any first aid kit. QuikClot quickly forms a natural blood clot which helps manage and stop bleeding in wounds which are otherwise hard to bandage. This impregnated gauze is also easier to use than the old granules which have a tendency to fly all around the place.
A tourniquet is a must have piece for any first aid kit. The legendary CAT is a long time favourite, an easy and sure choice for any IFAK or medic bag. Lightweight and very easy to use.
We recommend checking out the user manual (also supplied in paper form together with the tourniquet): Instructions for Use
CAT or SOF-T? Both of these tourniquets are superb, but there are some subtle differences. The CAT is a bit simpler and as such a bit easier to use, it is also lighter (weight 65 g). The SOF-T is extremely durable but maybe a tiny bit slower to use and heavier (weight 110 g).
The CAT is often prefered for personal use as a part of an IFAK whilst the SOF-T is maybe better suited for CLS and medic use. Nevertheless both work perfectly in any role and the most important factor in choosing a tourniquet is probably personal preference!
