Gear Review: Z-Medica QuikClot Sport

Stop big bleeds fast.

The military uses Z-Medica QuikClot Sport on the battlefield. It’s a sponge with zeolite, a mineral that absorbs water molecules in the blood, leaving only the larger platelet and clotting molecules behind. It stops big bleeds in three to five minutes, according to the Armed Forces (we trust them). $20; .9 oz.; z-medica.com
