When it comes to gear, the simplest designs are often the best designs. The new Cat Trap from OC Tactical is definitely a simple design.
The Cat Trap is a MOLLE compatible C-A-T Tourniquet holder that mounts vertically or horizontally with an optional adapter. It consists of a small panel and shock cord. The side of the panel that faces the tourniquet has a section of non-slip material sewn on to improve grip on the tourniquet. The panel is attached to the PALS webbing via shock cord which allows you to adjust the retention and is easily field replaceable.
If you prefer to mount your tourniquet horizontally you can purchase the optional Cat Trap Horizontal Adapter. The adapter is made from Hypalon material so it is thin and lightweight.
The result of the Cat Trap’s simple design is that it weighs very little, it is field repairable, it can be tightened to be nearly completely flat when it isn’t in use, and it is very affordable. Check out the Cat Trap at OC Tactical.
i like that they did a camo cover. too bad the rest of the cat is hanging out to be caught on a branch, or to clash
As a former infantryman who spent most of his days humping through the woods I know exactly what you’re talking about. That’s why we are working on a completely covered TQ holder also. Different missions call for different gear.
