    couple of years ago i bought some quick clot i think that was the brand and it had a shelf life of 5 or 6 years if i remember it correctly. it was the granules. i have 3 old cars and i always wondered if the heat of the car in the summer would cause a faster derogation of the quick clot. now just recently i watched some training videos and realized a piece of rope is not a good idea for a tourniquet and now i am looking for 4 of them. it also covered chest wounds and breathing saying in a pinch any plastic will do to help them breath. of course now i believe i should have something sanitized and built for it and will be looking for 4 of them an extra one for the home. i think this is very important stuff and the first aid kits i bought have very little in them for major trauma. which is silly. they give you some bandages and antiseptic, real minor stuff. this other is truly life threatening. i realized that way back when and that is why i got the quick clot. it was before i noticed it in any of the kits being sold, whereas now a days it is in there. thanks for my continuing education. it is kind of disappointing that the quick clot has a shelf life and it is not that cheap when you have to buy 4. does the heat reduce the good until date on it??

      QuikClot devices were designed to withstand a variety of environments. The EMS, law enforcement, and military products were designed to withstand high temperatures, high humidity, and below freezing temperatures. It is advised that all products be stored in a dry location, out of direct sunlight, and not in direct contact with heat sources.
