A tourniquet, at a minimum, is something that we all should carry. However, if you are going to practice successfully applying your tourniquet, you must use a dedicated practice tourniquet and not your "real world" one.
The SOF®TT-W 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. It also features a quick-connect, snap-lock buckle design, allowing rapid re-routing of the band around trapped limbs without rethreading.
