    Battlefield tests by the US and Israeli military shows that it works just fine. You can not use it on arterial wounds because the pressures are too great for the clotting to work, for those you need to have a Israeli Battle Dressing. To me, the IBD is far more important than Quick Clot as it has so many more uses and applications. I carry both in my BOB and on my load out and range bags.

    For the IBD's;

    A good price here

    Different sizes here

    Article about the development of the IBD

    A short article I found on the use:

    A very long article about the use:
