When NAR began work on the C-A-T® GEN 7 they considered every element that defines a tourniquet designed for combat use. They were challenged to find the best, most forward-looking way possible to enhance performance and maximize application success. But they didn’t do this alone. Leveraging input from after action reviews, researchers, material scientists and you, the end-user, NAR was able to create the most advanced C-A-T® to date. Every component of the C-A-T® GEN 7 is optimized for performance and reliability.The C-A-T® GEN 7 has a single routing buckle system that (1) allows for extremely fast application and effective slack removal (2) Simplified training with single protocol directions for all applications. The patented C-A-T® is a true one-handed tourniquet proven to be 100% effective by the U.S. Army’s Institute of Surgical Research. The NAR C-A-T® Tourniquet Pouch makes a great carrying case to keep this life saving device close at hand.

    This is an authentic CAT & is top quality.
    I hope I never have to use it.
    But if I do I know I can count on it to work...

    As good as it comes

    High visibility tourniquet. On top of its usability, the color is perfect to stick out in forest areas (hunting, hiking, camping) or in low visibility situations such as nights or aftermath of explosions.

    It is the "Gold Standard" in tourniquets, plain and simple.

    Great redesign of a proven tool!

    The Gen 7 addressed on of my issues with having a different self-application method for the arm and leg. I used it in two classes last week and the feedback has been great. I may end up replacing some of my SOFTT-W's with them.

    Easier to use than the SOF device

    Posted by Peter C on 03 04 2014

    Comparing this to the SOF, the SOFT, the SOFTT and SOFTT-W will show you that they are really close to the same thing. The small differences that make this one my favorite is that the locking mechanism is easier to lock, and the reminder to record the time is built in with the locking steps. The SOF series devices do pack down a little smaller, but not enough so you would notice. All three colors are exactly the same device, so choose safety orange, black, or training blue. The device can be reused, so you don't need a special training device to learn how to use it, just put this one on to learn, then take it off and put it in your kit. I don't know why the blue one costs more.
