First impressions of the tourniquick are in with me and I have to say I am a fan so far. Had it for about a week now so I can't fully talk about it, but so far so good. Easy to deploy and ready to go. Lots of mounting options. The one wrap ties are more than strong enough to hold the pouch in place when you deploy.
Loading is a snap.

Pics of mounting below.

I can't see your picutres, but the concept sounds good.

The things to think about are:
Gross motor skills under stress.
Slippery fluids (blood/mud/rain/snow).
One handed operation, even non-dominant hand.
Easy for self-application.

I'll blame the PC for the picture issues. I will try to upload some pictures from the range last weekend. I was running a new plate carrier while shooting. Happy with how I had it set up. Did some drilling with the Tourniquick while I was there. The pouch works 100% as advertised.

 

To practice Gross Motor skills, at the end of the day I did a few application drills after doing some hills up and down in full gear. It was a wet snowy day so I had the added advantage of cold hands with some snow & mud. Generally the drills were all executed one handed and on the first day I had deployment and application to upper arm with non dominant hand down to 35 seconds. Maybe a bit quicker. This I think would be my slowest mode of application.

 

When you pull the pouch the tourniquick deployed my SOFTT-W TQ perfectly. I could easily slide that up without having to open the TQ. Winding with my non dominant hand was tough, given the cold and the grip which slowed me down but I was still able to get it painfully tight. When I get home I will upload some images to imgur and share them across. That seems to be the only thing that works for pictures.
