BLUE FORCE GEAR
Blue Force Gear The Hammock
The Tourniquet Hammock is the quick and easy way to carry a CAT or SOF-T or RATS Tourniquet off of an existing belt or MOLLE mounted pouch that takes up no more additional mounting space and protects the tourniquet from the environment.
Following the huge success of the Micro Trauma Kit NOW!, the biggest question we got was Where do I keep my tourniquet? We always recommended keeping a tourniquet readily available and NOT inside a pouch for immediate access. With the Tourniquet Hammock, you can keep your tourniquet readily accessible right below your Micro Trauma Kit with no extra mounting space needed. As an added benefit, the Tourniquet Hammock keeps the tourniquet better protected against damaging UV rays, weather, and dirt and debris than having a TQ simply rubber banded to your gear.
The Tourniquet Hammock can be mounted to either the MOLLE or belt mounted Micro TKN, or any other MOLLE pouch with a 3 column MOLLE foot print such as the Trauma Kit NOW! Vertical Utility Pouch, and many others. Simply slide MOLLE straps through the slots on the Hammock towards the final installation point so that it hangs down or put the Hammock on first for it to hang at the top.
Excellent quality. Uncertain about the functionality and usefulness. Basically a commercial grade elastic band.
This product is great. I bought one last year to put on my plate carrier at the front as a dangler below my magazine pouches I got from Esstac. It allows me to better access it rather than put it on my neck. Cause let’s be honest here, the one that the Marine Corps issues is shitty, this will allow you to let it hang and you won’t even feel it there the entire time!
Great way to carry a TQ with the BFG MicroTKN. I used to pair the MicroTKN with a Lunar Concepts SwifTQ Carrier, mounting it on my belt horizontally with Speed-Clips. The Hammock streamlines the setup. Easy to install, easy to operate. Great idea for a quick-access TQ.
