A tourniquet is a must-have piece for any first aid kit. The The SOFTT-W tourniquet by TacMed excels in extreme reliability and strength. The machined aluminum hardware can take a beating and works flawlessly in any temperature and climate.

The SOFTT-W is supplied with an illustrated user manual.

Why a tourniquet?

The modern battlefield and mass shootings have shown that the risk of having to amputate a limb because of a tourniquet was applied is not really an issue, while blood loss is among the most common reason for loss of life. This has changed the approach to tourniquets and instead of the last option to treat limbic hemorrhage, they are now pretty much the first thing you do. There's not an IFAK on the market today which doesn't include a CAT.

For more info, here's a clear article with dos and don'ts along with other verified info.

SOFTT-W or CAT?

Both of these tourniquets are superb, but there are some subtle differences. The CAT is a bit easier to use one-handed and lighter (65 g / 2.29 oz). The SOFTT-W is extremely durable an can be easily buckled on or off. It's also a bit heavier (110 g / 3.88 oz) but folds into a flatter package for easy carry.

The CAT is often preferred for personal use as a part of an IFAK whilst the SOFTT-W is 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!

Käytin SOF-T:ia kaupunkitaisteluharjoituksessa aktiivisesti, ja sama side kesti koko viikonlopun ajan moitteetta ja toimii edelleen. Tämä on tosiaankin taistelupelastajille tarkoitettu kapine - SOF-T ("softi") on vaikea kiristää omaan käteen (tai olen vain nakkisormi) koska se pitää esikiristää vetämällä ja siitä puuttuu CATissa oleva velcrokiinnitys. Softi lähti itsellä pyörimään vedon mukana kättä ympäri. Kahdella kädellä Softin saa kuitenkin helposti paikalleen, ehkä jopa nopeammin kuin CATin.
