FYI, got the bandages in today from the Ebay seller. Perfect condition. Cracked one open to play with it and practice how to use the thing. If you have these and have not used them I would suggest opening one to do the same, as well as teach everyone else around you. It is a little harder than it looks in the you tube videos. Especially getting it to stay in the cleat when you flip it back to go the other way. When you have to open up one of them for real is not the time to learn how to use it. I did also recently order a few different packets of Celox which is for stopping blood loss. Since I will soon be concealed or open carrying everywhere I go I got a Celox-A which is in a applicator like a big syringe for things like gunshot wounds. Not planning on getting shot or accidentally shooting myself but I'd rather be prepared. Along with some small 2g packets and one large 35g packet. It is expensive but the way I see it a 25 dollar pack of magic powder that could potentially save my life is pretty good investment. I would really be kicking myself if I did not have it because I did not want to spend the money!! It's Like quick clot only better because of no exothermic reaction and no hospital detox....And also picked up the CAT touniquet. Decided it was time to invest in my medical kit a little bit.
Also, you can pull and wrap that elastic part pretty damn tight without worrying about it breaking. Honestly I doubt you could break it by strength alone.
I should have got some of these a long time ago. Relatively small and light weight. I'll keep at least one in my pack anywhere I go. Gave a couple to my dad to keep on his boat. They would make great gifts.... At least I'd be pretty stoked to get these in my stocking anyway
Maybe not everyone would.
