*like the product says, you need to practice with it so you know how to use it properly* like any Tournequte (TQ). A key factor is getting the cinch as tight as possible for ratchet to be effective.
This style only uses gross motor skills to apply unlike some others, which is important for when your addrenaline is going and you have other threats to focus on. I keep this as my personal TQ and a cat t for others.
This TQ is alittle bulky when folded due to the ratchet so i keep it flat and tucked into the soft plate pocket of my vest as there doesnt seem to be a good holster for it yet. Really cant notice it when flat and the ratchet buckle makes for an easy grab to deploy. It is easy to deploy once preset.
Only downside ive found is the color options, black or dark blue would be nice to wear on the outside of the uniform, but not necessary.
