The Complete Combatant has field tested the PHLSTER Flatpack Tourniquet Carrier (with the deployment tabs). We have found that it exceeded our expectations and we proudly offer this to you!
PHLster FLATPACK Tourniquet Carrier: The Flatpack (video) is the most versatile and lowest-profile tourniquet carrier available and it eliminates any and all excuses for not having a vital and life-saving tourniquet on-body. Until now, the EDC of a tourniquet involved a number of compromises. Windlass tourniquets, like the combat proven North American Rescue CAT and TacMed Solutions SOFTT-Wide, required bulky cases or pocket carry with rubber bands. Some people also resorted to ineffective gimmicks like slim elastic bands marketed as “tourniquets”, which often prove difficult to operate with one hand or might not adequately occlude blood flow. The Flatpack solves all of those problems. Simply flat-fold your tourniquet ("how to" video) of choice, strap it to the backboard, adjust the cord tension to your preference, and carry however you want. The Flatpack comes with two soft loops installed for horizontal belt and MOLLE carry. The loops can be easily removed, making the Flatpack a slim, easy to access pocket alternative to slow and cumbersome rubber bands.
PHLster High-viz FLATPACK Deployment Tabs: The PHLster flatpack is a versatile tool for any situation. The new Hypalon pull tabs can be ADDED and usde in many creative ways to help deploy your tourniquet. The tabs come in a kit including three tabs and three replacement shock cords for the Flatpack Tourniquet Carrier.
The FLATPACK Tourniquet Carrier (x1) and the Deployment Tabs (x2) are sold together.
