    Great thread and post, Shawn.

    Bottom line: It’s 2019. If you don’t have a proper tourniquet and the skill to use it, you are an idiot.

    I AIWB carry a CAT at 11:00, outboard of my reload. I just slip it into my waistline and the plastic collar for the windlass holds it in place: one arm on my belt and the other on the side flange of my mag holster. It's so lightweight that it never builds enough inertia to even shift, let alone fall out or slip through.

    I carry a RAT in a readyman elastic pouch, usually just in one of my pockets. When I stuff it in I leave a loop out to make it easier to pull it. I'd like to find a different carry option to make sure it is easy to access one handed.

    In my car bag I have a CAT and two SWAT tqs but this arent much use to me if I am bleeding out somewhere other than my trunk.

    Stolen! Wearing it now, and I'll try it tomorrow when I'm back on. Easy way to carry an extra.

    Cargo pockets, pants or shorts. If I'm dressed a little less casual, sports coat pockets. TQ, chest seals, IBD, Quick Clot, etc. Room for it all. I'm old enough that I look like any other old guy in baggy clothes.

    I am stealing that.

    For the time being, I roll up a RAT in my back pocket with a pair of chest seals when I'm in work clothes or jeans. When in cargo pants I switch to a CAT.
