The PHLster Flatpack Tourniquet Carrier may look like just a couple of straps on a piece of plastic, but the way the straps are attached to the piece of plastic makes this one of the simplest and most elegant methods of carrying a tourniquet. Let’s take a closer look.

You can also use the PHLster Flatpack Tourniquet Carrier for any piece of gear that you want to keep attached to virtually anything and keep it flat and close to your body, a pack, or belt.

Tourniquet Carry

The PHLster Flatpack Tourniquet Carrier is designed primarily to help you carry a tourniquet somewhere on your body, where it can be concealed, covered up and out of the way, or it can be attached to a bag or even a hard point inside your vehicle.

Carrying a tourniquet is now recognized as being practical for anyone who is interested in personal defense, taking care of themselves and others. A tourniquet is a simple and life-saving device that is inexpensive and relatively easy to carry. But you don’t want to throw a tourniquet into your pocket and have it unravel, flop around, and not be staged properly, or even get lost.

Attachment Options

The PHLster Flatpack Tourniquet Carrier is a great way to make sure the tourniquet is contained and staged properly. The PHLster holds different kinds of tourniquets — most people will choose the C-A-T or the SOF-TT — with elastic straps that secure it to the plastic. On the back of the plastic are sturdier rubber straps. Loop your belt through these rubber straps, attach them to your MOLLE gear or even loop your rifle sling through the straps to have the tourniquet at the ready with your other self-defense tools and accessories.

The tourniquet is then easy to deploy from this carrier.
