Fortunately, I haven't had to use it yet. I purchased it because it was a bit cheaper than the Israeli bandage and I thought I would add it to my trauma kit. Based on the picture, I don't see the pressure applicator that the Israeli bandage uses, but it looks like it has the clip to secure the bandage. It appears to use velcro and is stretchy so I imagine it will apply a good amount of pressure to the wound if used properly.
