SOF New Wide Tactical Tourniquet - Black
The newest evolution of the SOF® Tourniquet sets the benchmark for prehospital tourniquets. Purposeful upgrades allow for smoother and faster one-handed and two-handed applications for the most effective bleeding control.
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.
In developing the SOF® Tourniquet, we asked customers about their experiences and the features that would be most important to them. The feedback gathered is shown in the tourniquet’s improved design and effectiveness. It is stronger, lighter, and easier to use so you can stop the bleed anywhere life takes you.
Our patented SOF® Tourniquet was designed by a Special Forces medic while on deployment in Afghanistan in 2003 to save lives. It is still the preferred tourniquet for elite military forces and emergency responders worldwide.
NOTEWORTHY UPGRADES IN THE NEW SOF® TOURNIQUET:
1) PERFORMANCE COMPRESSION BAND
Completely redesigned webbing maximizes compression during the application process. At a true 1.5” width, the new performance material glides through the Rugged Buckle for quick, snag-free operation and minimizes loss of pressure over time after application.
2) SLACK INDICATOR WEDGE
Stitched into the Performance Compression Band below the windlass. The contrasting wedge offers a visual confirmation you have pulled all excess slack from the band. This is a critical step for proper tourniquet application and results in fewer windlass rotations required to reach occlusion.
3) RUGGED BUCKLE
Engineered to remove excess slack in a single fluid motion. The buckle’s shape stabilizes the Performance Compression Band at any angle of engagement. The new Rugged Buckle is an advanced, lightweight composite design with superior strength over previous versions.

The SOF Wide Tactical Tourniquets are my favorite to use and to have at the ready incase I the need to use arrises. They fit easily into a back pocket, jacket or cargo pocket.They Flat wrap down very compact for carry and I carry several in my vehicle and EDC Bag. Highly recommend and the price is excellent. Shipping was very FASt!
I never used one before, but this came with a little pamphlet showing how to place it on and use it on your body, feels like it's made out of strong materiel. This doesn't feel cheap and secures easily in place. For the price and how great it seems to use, I will buy another one at a later date. I hope I never have to use it.
SOF- Tourniquets are issued to my medic unit where I work as a paramedic. I've researched these tourniquets myself and I'm sold on the construction and functionality.
Also, Live Action Safety was freaking FAST on the shipping. And the price was very competitive too! Thanks!
I like the re-design without the thumbscrew and the metal windlass
This product is great,i like the locking action.i believe this will benefit well.
This tourniquet is intuitively designed. It is simple to use during high stress situations and highly effective.
