I’m gonna be honest, I loved the new MARCHH kits, even if they’re a bit different. Very effective outside of the piece of junk tourniquet they use. Get CATs.

Yeah I have 2 masks 40mm threads. I’ve been looking at Mira Safety and they seem to have them for an okay price of $79.99 with 20 year shelf life. Anyone have experience with them? I used to buy some Israeli ones from Atlantic tactical but the manufacturer stopped selling them.

if i'm out and about and i get tagged by a rattlesnake, what should i do? i thought slapping a tourniquet on was the answer to keep the venom from reaching your heart, but it sounds like doing that will basically guarantee you lose your limb because it lets the venom sit and eat away at your tissue

Woah! Snake bites are dry (no venom) about 80% of the time. If the bite has venom, a tourniquet is not a good idea. Keep your heart rate down, stay relaxed, drink water and get some assistance. Snake venom is processed in the body just fine and only extreme cases need antivenom

A tourniquet will increase tissue damage greatly. The most dangerous part of a venomous bite is infection from the puncture wound.

@XXXEXTENCIONCORD Paramedic here. Definitely a tourniquet, preferably a TMT, CAT, RMT as they’ve been proven most effective. It also wouldn’t hurt to keep some rolled gauze for packing a wound if needed. I’ll post my IFAK in second.

It’s held up pretty well and has a ton of space. I take it anytime i go shooting or on longer distance trips.
