This is such a versatile tool that the military has a section of its bandaging field manual devoted to the thing.
These are the "basic" multipurpose bandage, used since time beyond memory. There is an excellent manual, FM8-50 Manual on Bandaging and Splinting, that includes an excellent section on bandaging with these. Considering how much you can do with these, no camp kit, hiking backpack or Bug Out Bag should be without 3 or 4 of these.
I expected the slings to be a bit more substantial.
