Interesting uniform concept

Blackhawk has a new combat uniform concept out there; the biggest feature of which (at least the one they are touting heavily) is an integrated tourniquet system.

Now, I have reservations about this, because there are many situations where tourniquets are an inappropriate response to an injury; and they tend to be applied inappropriately by inexperienced responders; but this gives a very fast option when it's a matter of life and death.

Even better, it can be done one handed, by the injured party. That in and of itself is an invaluable option.

Plus lots of great pockets.
