New Tactical Medical Solutions SOF Tactical Tourniquet – Wide

By The ITS Crew

We’ve been hearing about the new SOF Tactical Tourniquet – Wide for some time now, and just realized it’s now available!

While we haven’t been hands-on with this new design, we’ve heard great things about it from those who have been. We’ve always preferred the SOF-T over the CAT when it comes to Tourniquets and have never hidden the fact that the CAT has some inherent issues.

The new SOFTT-W represents a fantastic upgrade from the previous version of the SOF-T, eliminating the Alligator Clip-like routing and thumb screw retention. Even though we felt the SOF-T was the best thing on the market, the previous routing/retention system always seemed bulky to us. The thumb screw always presented an issue too, as it takes somewhat fine motor skills to turn.

As everyone knows, fine motor skills go right out the window in situations that would require you to perform self-aid with a tourniquet. Needless to say, the new SOFTT-W looks to offer some solid features and we can’t wait to get hands-on with one.

Update: We’re now offering the SOFTT-W in our store! Look for a detailed review coming soon!


The SOF Tactical Tourniquet-Wide (SOFTT-W) is the result of an exhaustive 24 month research initiative compiling end-user research and laboratory studies to develop a more effective, easier to use tourniquet for all environments. High-strength, light-weight alloy components are used in critical areas of function ensuring reliability in the most challenging of circumstances and on the largest of limbs. This was all accomplished while reducing the weight by an amazing 25%.

The high strength hook and buckle interface was designed for security, strength and ease of application. The design allows for rapid routing of the tourniquet strap while eliminating need for re-threading the webbing through a buckle. By eliminating the requirement to re-route the webbing the tourniquet is easier to use when operating under stress and reduces application time, both of which can result in reduced levels of blood loss and better quality patient care.

The SOFTT-W also 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.

Each tourniquet ships with two UV resistant black rubber bands for mounting to your individual equipment.
