I wrote an article a while ago about basic EDC gear. That said always carry a cutting tool, a way to start a fire, a light and a tactical pen. Id like to amend that with an idea I am starting to work on after writing about tourniquets and pressure bandages. That is to also include a tourniquet.

My idea is to find a small pouch that I can put on my belt that will hold an Olaes flat pack pressure bandage and a RATS tourniquet. The idea came from the RATS being the smallest and easiest tourniquet to carry but I wanted to wrap it flat pack style so it doesn’t bulk out a pocket. So it is always on you and not just in the car or a shoulder bag or knapsack.

I always pick up a blade I don’t always pick up a medical system to support that blade.
