The R.A.T.s (Rapid Application Tourniquet) was designed based on feedback from the battlefield where soldiers required a tourniquet that could be easily applied and offered a low profile carry. The tourniquet is already in use around the world by varrying SOF elements and has been proven on the battlefield. The R.A.T.s can fit just about anywhere on your kit and can be quickly applied to an extremety using one hand.

Features:

  • 1/2” Flat Bungee Cord quickly stops the bleeding
  • Low vis carry profile
  • Half the price of traditional tourniquets
  • Robust locking system
  • Made in the USA

Taking 5 after the climb.

I always like to take 5 minuets after a climb to sit back and take in the view. The conditions were perfect on Fridays mini adventure.
As always my pack did great, I had it compressed right down with no problems. Every time I use this pack I’m just as impressed with it as I was the first time I took it out!

New SAR helmets!

With the SAR team being completely run on donations and fundraising, all our personal equipment is self bought!

Quite a few of our members have now bought multi role helmets to fit in with the amount of different work we carry out as a team, and all the training we do both with the team and in our own time!

Hands down the only helmet iv used that compares to my Ops Core.
Now my helmet is the same as the one picture only in red. (White photographs better)

The helmets have strips of SOLAS tape as well as replaceable vent covers that glow in the dark. They are also fitted for hearing protection or comms, and come with ballistic rated pull down eye protection. This is perfect for use in confined spaces or whilst dealing with road traffic accidents. They can also be fitted to take different headlights.

These are now the current issue helmet to wide range of emergency services.

Both my helmet, my brothers, and my buddies (the one pictured) have been retro fitted with Velcro patches so they can be fitted with the different Glint/glow markers or CyFlect markers from Ru at rtknives@hotmail.com. I have carried out extensive real world use and testing of all the markers made by Ru, and the team are fully impressed with them. That much so we are willing to place them on our gear and helmets.

The full specs and helmets can be found here - http://www.future-safety.com/manta-multi-role-sar-helmet/

For the markers simply contact Ru - rtknives@hotmail.com

Water-to-go 

Staying hydrated whilst exercising is key! However sometimes it is not always possible to carry enough water. 
Sure you can always boil water, however this is still a lengthy process and not always ideal when on the move.

I have been using the Water-to-go drinks bottle for quite sometime now, and it has been perfect for my needs! It provides you with safe drinking water whilst on the move with its built in filter! 
Something I wish I had whilst deployed.

No more messing about with filter tablets or pumps. 

Not only that they are very cost effective and one of the cheapest filter systems on the market!

I was asked by a follower to do a re post on my custom SAK.

This is my day to day EDC tool I wanted a simple knife with a few basic tools.

I then sent this down to my good friend Ru from rtknives@hotmail.com to add some custom g10 scales. As always he did a great job!

I have seen a few other SAK’s that he has put scales on and they are all very nice!

A good friend from the Search & Rescue team snapped this shot of me as we climbed a limestone ridge.
