Blue Force Gear – Tourniquet Now! Pouch

Monday, August 13th, 2018

SAVANNAH, GA-June 27, 2018- Blue Force Gear® announced the debut of the Tourniquet Now!™ Pouch to its growing line of medical accessories, each designed with focus on mission-critical essentials, including IFAK carriers and medical item storage, all while remaining versatile and lightweight.


“While working with some of the top tier medical professionals,” said Stephen Hilliard, Director of Product Development, “we found that they are dialed in on the effects of UV degradation on tourniquets. We wanted to make a quick access TQ pouch that offers more environmental protection than our standard TNS Strap

Performance and Usability

The Tourniquet Now!™ Pouch is the perfect balance between speed and protection in a platform that allows you to add a tourniquet to your everyday carry. The Tourniquet Now!™ Pouch gives you superior protection yet quick access to your tourniquets. In line with our other medical equipment such as the Trauma Kit NOW!™ and the Micro TKN™ – the Tourniquet Now!™ Pouch can be accessed with one hand – simply pull the tab down and remove the tourniquet.

Previously you had to decide between overbuilt flapped or zippered pouches, hard ‘open top’ pouches, or having your tourniquet exposed with rubber bands. The first option can become too complicated or time consuming searching for a zipper pull – time that cannot be afforded when seconds is the difference in survival. Exposed tourniquets will experience faster degradation from UV rays, water, and sand and debris – not to mention the possible failure of the rubber bands holding the tourniquet.


The Tourniquet Now!™ Pouch was designed around the CAT tourniquet but can fit the SOF, RATS, TK4, SWAT-T, or other similar sized tourniquets and serves as a great all-around rapid deploy pouch. The tourniquet fits inside an elastic keeper attached to the lid that is then folded up and secured on the top with a hook and loop field. Lastly a BLIP™ – or Ball Loaded Index Point makes for the perfect ‘pull’ with gloved, wet, or bloody hands. . The ball doesn’t rely on friction; the bones in your fingers positively engage it. BLIP’s form is both easy to pull and impossible to miss. . As with all Blue Force Gear equipment, it is made with excellence in the USA and carries a limited lifetime warranty.

Technical and Colors


The Tourniquet Now!™ Pouch starts with the Helium Whisper® MOLLE attachment system made of ULTRAcomp® – a battle proven, high performance laminate. This creates a small and light yet secure MOLLE attachment for the pouch on any MOLLE war-belt, plate carrier, pack, or any other platform.


The Belt Mounted Tourniquet Now!™ Pouch allows you to carry a tourniquet on your belt – easily the most effective life saving device. Whether a trip to the mall, the office, or through the woods – a tourniquet should always be with you. The pouch fits on any pants belt or duty belts up to 2” wide.

Dimensions – 2” x 2” x 7”
Weight – 41 grams empty
Colors – Black, Coyote Brown and MultiCam.

Pricing and Availability

The Tourniquet Now!™ Pouch is available now at

Pricing ranges from $29 to $39 per pouch.

SOF Select 18 – MATBOCK Introduces New Material for J-LIFT and R-LIFT Litters

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018

Last week, I stopped by MATBOCK’s shop in Virginia Beach to check out their new Ghost Heavy material. It boasts 750 lbs sq in tensile strength and over 400 lbs tear strength.


Previously, the J-LIFT was made from Trelleborg material, weighing 36 oz.
Now, it’s made from MATBOCK’s new Ghost Heavy material and weighs just 12.4 oz. You can also see how small the litter folds up, fitting in this pouch.


So far, they haven’t been able to get the material to absorb anything, meaning it can be deconned over and over. It also features all Kevlar stitching.

The panels are big enough for wrist carry and it accepts poles.

The material is also now on the R-LIFT l, bringing the weight down to 5.5 lbs with the backpack.

This is an inline change for both systems; same part number, same price.
