“One of my 10th MTN soldiers was shot through the lower leg while on patrol in Baghdad. He would have bled to death had it not been for the Burke RMT.” – LTC Drew Kosmowski, MD, 10th MTN Division Surgeon
“The build strength is outstanding. I do not find a weak point. The whole thing is solid. We see a couple of advantages to the RMT. Gross motor skill operation. Self-Locking.” – Greg M (EOD) Afghanistan Nov. 2012
“During my pre-deployment train up in August 2008, I purchased two RMT’s (Ratcheting Medical Tourniquet). After spending the next month training with them, I decided to replace my issued CAT with the RMT’s. On December 14, 2008 while on patrol in Iraq I was shot by a sniper in my upper left arm (dominant arm). I applied the RMT quickly and easily above the gunshot wound. I was easily able to tighten the tourniquet strap stopping all blood flow to the extremity and manipulate the tourniquet ratcheting mechanism, with my non-dominant arm, even with the loss of fine motor skills. Because I was able to apply it without looking at it I was able to maintain security and my peripheral vision, allowing me to scan for more threats and get back in the fight quicker.” – Andrew Brady, US Army (Ret)

Excellent all around tourniquet. Simple operation with a little training. Simple and effective is what you want if you are in a situation that you need to use this. Down side is no holders made for this piece of kit yet, but not a deal breaker. I carry the RMT 2" along with the RAT for EDC
Items arrived in Aus. well packaged and quite quickly. Happy with product and service.
One of the better arterial tourniquets on the market. Good price and excellent delivery time
*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.
