Gen 4: The SOF Tactical Tourniquet Wide is the product of a 24-month long research initiative that resulted in an effective, easy to use tourniquet. The high-strength hook and buckle interface allows for rapid routing of the tourniquet strap without the need for rethreading the webbing thought a buckle. This ease of operation reduces application time under stress. The SOF-T Wide has a true 1.5" wide tourniquet strap, unlike most standard tourniquets. This allows the SOF-T Wide to offer a wider compression pattern for increased comfort and arterial compression.
The blue color of the SOF Wide distinguishes it not in functionality, but so you can keep your training tourniquet separate from the one you keep for emergencies.
The SOF-T Wide Tourniquet's ease of use, reliability and light weight are just a few of the reasons it's being carried by Military (conventional and special operations medical and non-medical personnel), EMS, law enforcement officers, contractors, federal agents, and prepared citizens (individually or as part of active shooter kits). It is also becoming one of the most popular options for EDC situations that call for extremity hemorrhage control. In terms of everyday carry, it's ease of use eliminates the fear of a large learning curve.
This variation of the SOF-T Tourniquet has the quick-compression technology buckle, is 1.5" wide, and comes in trainer blue.
Made in the USA.
