One of the major causes of failure in tourniquet application is insufficient constricting pressure on the initial application prior to turning the windlass. The SAM XT Tourniquet differs from other windlass tourniquets in that it features an auto-stop system that allows for instant tightening of the constricting band to the proper tension prior to engaging the windlass. This saves time and ensures effective occlusion of blood flow when pressure is applied with the windlass. SAM XT is CoTCCC recommended.
Weather-resistant hook and loop system functions when fully submerged, providing maximum security in the harshest weather. Outer material is optimized for night vision.
Secures the Metal Windlass Rod using an intuitive angular design, making windlass locking easier and more efficient.
Durable nylon construction distributes force as targeted pressure for maximum strength and flexibility, able to bend on smaller extremities without breaking.
Innovative auto-lock technology activates locking prongs, eliminating slack typically found in all other tourniquet applications.
METAL WINDLASS ROD
Machined from extruded bars of strong, lightweight 6061-T6 true billet aluminum for consistent reliability when compared to plastic composites.
Velcro-dependent tourniquets can fail when wet or dirty. The all-weather Precision Strap is made of single-layer nylon webbing. It features intervaled holes that lock with the TRUFORCE™ Buckle to create a consistent, efficient primary security system. The secondary hook and loop system secures the remaining strap, adding stability and safety.
Intuitive design allows for quicker, easier tourniquet application. Material is optimized for night vision.
Blue Trainer option also available.

Seems like a solid TQ and I like the metal windlass auto-lock technology that they incorporate in the product. Only thing I am concerned about is the two plastic prongs that the auto-lock technology uses to lock the tq to prevent slack, I haven't had any issues with the prongs but I would like to see it possibly be upgraded with a stronger feeling/looking polymer or metal if possible.
Bought this with personal funds to wear on my RSO vest. Gratefully I haven't had to use mine but it seems a well-thought evolution of the windlass-style TQ. Still working the best way to prep it for one-handed application. Definitely worth a look!
Excellent TQ. At first, I was a little disappointed at its plastic hardware (I have preferred SOFTTs), but I have learned to appreciate it. The velcro band allows for easy gripping and no sliding - much easier to apply on an arm with one arm than a SOFTT. When the TQ is tightened, it "snaps" the buckle into a lock position for easy windlass tightening without loosening at all. Releasing the buckle is a bit of a pain, so make sure you test that out first. don't crank down on it until you're sure of its positioning. The strap is very thick and stiff - very inflexible, and sturdy. The windlass is metal and is very well checkered (with sharp fine texture), but that may get filled with dirt, so I'll keep an eye on that as time goes on. When you get it, make sure to thread the strap through the buckle and then put it into your pouch. If you don't, that's a pain, but at least the stiff strap makes it fairly easy to do. This is longer than a CAT and SOFTT packaged, so it didn't work in my Sarma TQ holder and barely fits in the Condor one. Keep that in mind.
