Prudent Prepping: Quick Hits

The dust has settled and the First 72 Hours have passed. Follow along as I build a long term plan via Prudent Prepping.

This is going to be a bit short, due to Life and Obligations taking up my extra time. 

Tourniquet Information, part The Latest
In last week's tourniquet post I neglected to mention or link to a video showing one way to set up a CAT tourniquet for quick deployment. Our Esteemed Editrix very thoughtfully took the opportunity to post a link to one of those YouTube videos. When I said I completely forgot to add that link, she mentioned "Something something snoozing something." What a pal! 

(Editrix's Note: What I said was "You snozt, therefore you lost.")

Another item I didn't mention is the nifty TQ carrier I ordered along with the two CATs from North American Rescue.

C-A-T Holder
From the NAR webpage:

The C-A-T® Holder was specifically designed to allow personnel to place their C-A-T® Tourniquet on their vest or gear for rapid and easy access. It is made of 1000D IR Signature Reduced Nylon with MOLLE/PALS-style connectors. The C-A-T® Holder protects your tourniquet from the elements and has an easy-open elastic pull tab.

NOTE: Accommodates both Gen 6 and Gen 7 C-A-T® Tourniquets (not included)

  • Tailored specifically for your C-A-T®, to protect it from exposure to the elements
  • PALS/MOLLE-style connectors for versatile attachment to the duty vest, gear or belt (mounted horizontally or vertically) for rapid & easy access
  • 1000D IR Signature Reduced Nylon
  • Easy-open pull elastic tab with tourniquet ID patch – “TQ”
  • NATO stock numbers available for COY and ODG. Contact Customer Service for details.
  • NOTE: Accommodates both Gen 6 and Gen 7 C-A-T® Tourniquets (not included)


With the very sturdy straps on the back, you will not have a problem mounting this anywhere! I've not decided at the moment where this holder is going to stay, but I do believe there will be several more coming to me very soon.

As others have mentioned, I'm getting away from all-black items, especially those things that may be stored inside my various bags, and a red TQ holder fits that requirement perfectly. There are several other colors besides red and black but, mostly camouflage and military rucksack colors, but no purple, so I may have a hard time 'selling' the carrying of a TQ to the Purple Pack Lady.
Wish me luck!
Recap And Takeaway
  • One North American Rescue CAT TQ Holder ordered directly from NAR: $19.99
  • Nothing was ordered last week, but reviews for several items are pending... pending me finding time to actually write something.
