In an emergency situation, being able to stop the bleeding could make the difference between life or death. We wanted a way to be able to carry a couple of basic medical essentials in a pouch compact enough to throw into a purse, backpack or pocket.
This pouch is hand-made and hand-painted! Your choice of red, painted exterior design: "Oh Shit Kit" with cross, "Ouch Pouch" with cross or just a plain cross with no text.
1 x Combat Application Tourniquet (CAT) by North American Rescue
Both items are made in the USA.
Pouch Dimensions: 7" x 5". Stuff it full or fold it small!

Many of us carry an extra magazine on your person and/or in your range bag. Why do we not carry a tourniquet too? It should be a part of our inventory, as well as having proper training on how to use one. We know it can save a life, and that life may be your own. Having one with you or nearby within reach can at least stop or slow the bleeding until EMS can render aide.
This pouch is PERFECT. It contains a tourniquet and a QuickClot sponge to stop the bleeding faster than the body’s natural clotting process. The pouch is red and visible. There is room inside to add a couple of bandaids and non-latex gloves too. It is clipped to one of my zippers on the outside of my range bag. I will be purchasing one for my son’s school backpack, and to keep one in every car.
