The SOF® Tourniquet's innovative design and upgraded features make it one of the most effective bleeding control devices available. Through material testing, extensive research and real-world use on/off the battlefield, the SOF Tourniquet continues to evolve to meet the needs of emergency responders worldwide. Lighter and stronger than the SOFTT-W Gen 4, so you can stop the bleed wherever you may be.

  • Exclusive tourniquet selected by the American Red Cross

  1. Performance Compression Band - Reinforced polyester webbing maximizes compression during the application process. At a true 1.5" width, the 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 Rugged Buckle is an advanced, lightweight composite design with superior strength over previous versions.
  4. High-strength Aluminum Windlass - Machined from a single aircraft-grade aluminum bar stock, the 5.5” windlass features signature conical ends and grip-friendly texture for consistent torque. Its anodized finish minimizes impacts from environmental elements for durability in any scenario.
  5. Tourniquet Retention Assistance Clip™ (TRAC) - Conveniently holds the windlass in place until you can secure it into the Tri-Ring Lock™. The Trac provides steady handling during tough applications and enhances control for one-handed movements.
  6. Tri-Ring Lock™ - Complete the tourniquet application by securing the windlass into the Tri-Ring Lock. It can easily be manipulated with just one hand and prevents the windlass from shifting during patient movement.
  7. Time tag - A tag for documenting the tourniquet application time.



A blue trainer version of this tourniquet is also available here.

    These are great with the clip, you can not also slide a CAT 3 this just makes it easier, but I carry both.

    SOF T GEN 5

    Posted by Hunter on 06 07 2022

    I haven't had the opportunity to check out a CAT 7 but I really like this SOF-T. I currently own this as well as the SAM XT. The SAM XT is a great TQ but is very bulky in comparison to the SOF T. People had concerns with them changing the buckle from metal to a polymer on the Gen 5 but it feels very sturdy as well as slightly lighter than the metal version. I don't foresee having any issue with it compared to the Gen 4.

    An overall improvement on the Gen 4 SOFTT

    Posted by Aaron on 05 03 2021

    Many improvements over the gen 4. Easier to reattach buckle if you can't loop around the limb. Webbing is a touch thicker and is of a more 'seat belt' style of nylon which is softer, but a bit more rigid which seems to make single-handed operation easier. More fabric to tighten for the windlass adds a bit more flexibility and leniency if the original starting point wasn't tight enough. The main buckle is now sturdy polymer, but that does not appear to be a detriment at all. The new design appears to be possibly stronger at that point. Still packs down very compactly and stages well for quick deployment.
