I have several TQs. My ankle IFAK has a SOF-TW (mostly because it folds the flattest) and I have a CAT and SAM-XT in my bag. All of my other kits plait the spares in my truck are CATs and SOF-TWs. Get one of the committee recommended TQs and learn how to use it. Aaand much like your carry gun, carry it it with you-on your person as much as you can.

CAT Gen7 model

CAT no idea what Gen, Aluminum windlass.
