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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

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.
