Review: Lia Medical Tourniquet Trauma Kit

I cannot stress how important it is to have a well stocked first aid kit in your house. I almost hate to use the word "kit" in that. It should almost be a closet, in my opinion. I have one closet shelf dedicated to first aid supplies, which is quickly filling up. I will need another shelf soon. 

   A tourniquet kit was one thing I was missing in my first aid closet. However, I acquired this Lia Medical tourniquet kit. It comes with one tourniquet (obviously), one bandage and one emergency blanket. I am certified in first aid, so I took the classes and practiced tourniquets during the course. I am confident that I can use this kit if the need should ever arise - which I pray it does not.
   My husband wants to add this to his bug-out bag, which I am not opposed to. If a time should come when we do have to flee our home, I would prefer the tourniquet be in the bag. And if I ever should need it here at home, I know exactly where the bug-out bag is. It will take me just as long to get the tourniquet out of the bag as it would the closet.
   I made sure this tourniquet was not cheaply made. It would not be good if it would break in the middle of tightening it. My husband loaned me his arm and it passed the test. There were no problems, not even concerns that it might not hold.
Full disclosure: I was sent this product free of charge in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
