About the SOFTT-W Special Operations Forces Tactical Style Tourniquet
The SOFTT-W style tourniquet is one of the most widely used tourniquet currently used in the military, particularly in special forces and other elite combat units.
This tactical tourniquet is constructed using a number of strong, high-quality materials: a metal buckle, a high-impact plastic tri-ring, a moulded Acetyl and aircraft-grade aluminium.
As it uses a webbing band measuring 1 metre in length and 38mm in width, it can quickly and easily be used on virtually any part of the body.
It continues to see use by the world’s most elite and experienced military forces due to its excellent ability to control sever bleeding, not to mention its ease of use and consistent reliability in the field.
