SOF Tactical Tourniquet
- With proven 100% effectiveness in USAISR testing, the SOFTT is one of the most trusted tourniquets for controlling severe extremity hemorrhage on the battlefield. The simple application, durability and reliability of the SOF Tactical Tourniquet make it one of the U.S. Army's top choices for tourniquets. Unlike other tourniquets that require you to learn two methods of application and implement the proper method when under stress, the SOFTT is applied the same way to an arm or leg. The SOFTT is constructed from high strength materials that retain their strength in extreme temperatures. The tourniquet handle is machined from a solid piece of aircraft aluminum while the tri-rings are molded Acetyl, a high impact plastic. A dual locking systems guarantee that tension is maintained at all times, and the primary system has a back up of its own should it be necessary. Safety set screw prevents accidental release of pressure during tactical patient movement. No velcro is used to maintain tension which greatly reduces the chance of accidental release of the tourniquet. The fastening system will perform when dirty, muddy, frozen, or wet.
