SOF-T or CAT? Both of these tourniquets are superb, but there are some subtle differences. The CAT is a bit simpler and as such a bit easier to use, it is also lighter (weight 65 g). The SOF-T is extremely durable but maybe a tiny bit slower to use and heavier (weight 110 g).
The CAT is often prefered for personal use as a part of an IFAK whilst the SOF-T is maybe better suited for CLS and medic use. Nevertheless both work perfectly in any role and the most important factor in choosing a tourniquet is probably personal preference!
