    I'm going to bump this thread to eat a little crow. After all my arguments about TQ prep I've had someone point out something that I had never considered.

    While a TQ threaded through both buckles is very secure, it's also going to be slow as hell if I have to unthread it completely to put it over a limb that's been totally shattered (think: Blasted apart or run over by an armored vehicle).

    for the last few months I've been running my TQs threaded through one side of the buckle. Additionally I melted the last 1in of Velcro on the strap to aid in threading it through the buckle in a hurry.

    So this is me saying that if blast injuries are a real threat, threading it through both buckles and folding the last inch or so over (like I was doing before) isn't the optimal solution. Mea Culpa for passing questionable info.

    Have you had different experiences where TQ design becomes a factor?

    Big Green issues this one (or something similar): http://www.amazon.com/C-A-T-Combat-A...rds=tourniquet

    It has the loop-over that was previously mentioned


    I prefer to use this one (because it can be configured for use only with one side pulled): http://www.amazon.com/Softt-nh-SOF-T...rds=tourniquet

    I apologize if this is confusing, also for making folks click all over the internet. I'm at work and I can't get pics uploaded.

    Belly,

    I've carried and used both the CAT and the SOF-T. I've gotten away from the SOF-T because of the weight difference. I don't see a whole lot of difference in performance. They should both work fine.

    I just got a Flickr account set up. I'll go through and sort it out over the next couple of weeks. I'm due to up date this anyway. The pictures were from a couple of years ago and I've adjusted some things since then.
