That’s ok. Cuz it sure as hell works for me. And many more in the field.

Test things yourself instead of reading about it. You’ll learn a lot more. Maybe you have, and it’s not for you. That’s cool to. There still in business so it must be doing something right.

Being in the private protection sector we can’t wear tons of bulky gear.

Remember, the only thing that’s bad about the rats is that it’s basically a thick bungee. The thin design “could” cause damage more then the wider design of the others. Ya gotta look at why, not just cuz they said so. Know the limitations of all your gear. If the person even carries it, cuz thats90% if not more of the ppl I know. They never have medical supplies on em

If you want a slimmer and smaller profile then a CAT, look at the SOFTT-W and how to flat pack it.
