I'm in the military and have seen these "Israeli" bandages in action. They are extremely effective and it would be great to see them in use in the wider world. As far as this particular product is concerned; it arrived promptly, in excellent vacuum packed condition and with a 2017 expiry date. Top tip: If your travelling abroad, its a good idea to take off the "Made in Israel" sticker as this can, on occasion, cause some unnecessary bother at certain airports.

Excellent piece of kit, really useful couldn't believe how easy its to use. The fact this is available outside of emergency services its worth adding to any first aid kit, I work as a nurse and I'm considering adding it to our first aid kit at work

Of course I hope never to need battle dressings in a first aid situation I'll probably be in over my head with such an injury. Having said that the dressings arrived surprisingly fast during xmas period, were well packed and appear to be just as advertised. One point that bothered me slightly: the instructions are printed on the wrapper which is vacuum sealed rendering the instructions illegible. I first trained in first aid with the Royal Navy so have a pretty good idea what to do with these but a print out of the instructions would be great.

These items are well known and sometimes dubbed 'Israeli bandages'. They were apparently developed for the Israeli military and are ideal for stopping significant external hemorrhage.

So, what do you get in this package?

The bandage is well sealed in an outer pack, I have this in a pocket of my body armour and it has been scuffed and bashed without the packaging splitting or being compromised. There are easy rip notched around the corners, tear this open and there is an inner, sterile, wrapping that keeps the dressing clean and contaminant free. As a bonus, the inner packaging is sterile and could be used as an emergency chest seal if a pneumothorax type injury is encountered.

Anyway, bust open the inner wrapper and you have a nice, six inch (or four, depending on the size bought) dressing. The attached bandage is highly elasticated and very strong.

The magic part of this package is the plastic bar attached to the rear of the dressing pad. As with a standard dressing you press the sterile side of the pad against the wound, wrap the leader end of the bandage round the limb or affected area once. This is where things differ, rather than continuing with a mummy style wrap you insert the leader into the plastic bar then turn it back the way it came. This cranks the bar down hard on the dressing pad and exponentially increases the pressure applied to the wound and, as we all know, more pressure equals less bleeding. The leader is then wrapped round and round in a conventional manner, covering all sides of the pad. A plastic clip at the end of the leader then clips into the wrapped bandage. For extra torque the clip can be inserted, 'Spanish windlass' style, and given a couple of turns to crank up the pressure.

These dressings work amazingly well at stopped hemorrhage and should be seen as dressings v2.0.

Recommended for all situations and an essential addition to any serious first aid kit.

An excellent trauma bandage addition to my mountain bike first aid pack, large enough to deal with a large trauma with easy tie off straps for additional support and pressure on the wound.

Looks good, nicely vacuumed packed so fits in first aid kit. Thankfully haven't had to use it yet! Security man at airport treated it a bit suspiciously but let it through

These are trauma bandages for deep bleeding wounds like slash, puncture, stab or gunshot wounds, or if a limb or digit has been amputated. They are vacuum sealed and are sterile. They soak up a lot of blood and are designed to use pressure to stop the bleeding long enough for an ambulance to arrive and get the injured person to hospital. If the wound is bleeding heavily the bandage can be used as a tourniquet. They come in different sizes, so make sure you get the size you require. Most larger med-kits should have two of each size.
