The newest evolution of the SOF® Tourniquet (GEN 5) sets the benchmark for prehospital tourniquets. It has a true 1 ½” tourniquet strap providing a wider compression pattern than most standard tourniquets, or tourniquets with a 1” constricting band moving through a 1 ½” sleeve. This broader compression pattern allows for increased patient comfort and additional arterial compression. The tourniquet handle is machined from a single piece of high strength aluminum bar stock. The strength of the handle virtually eliminates the risk of product failure. It is then anodized to minimize the products signature in a tactical environment. Upgrades allow for smoother and faster one-handed and two-handed applications for the most effective bleeding control as well as a "pressure indicator wedge" stitched into the webbing to ensure a solid "first pull" to remove all the slack and facilitate a successful application.
Its innovative design comes from years of extensive research, material testing, and end-user feedback on and off the battlefield. It continues to evolve with your changing medical response needs when bleeding control is needed most. The SOF® Tourniquet easily slides over an arm or leg. It unclips at the buckle to fit around hard-to-reach areas, such as a trapped limb.

Very simple and easy to apply!!
I run two of these in my kit every day on shift. One on person, one on plate carrier. I have practiced with them and also applied under stress, easy to use, simple to deploy. Highly recommend this product. If you don't carry a tourney on shift, you're plain wrong.
I'm convinced these are are TQ I'd bet my life and someone else's life on. After taking several emergency med classes, IMO they are the apex of current TQ design. Buying several more.
