Going forward, the Gen 4 will be replaced by the newest SOF®T tourniquet.
The SOF® Tourniquet Generation 4 (SOF®TT-W) is a true generational upgrade to the most effective tourniquet on the market, featuring 4 key upgrades:
Retention Clip makes the windlass easier to secure in one-handed applications. If you desire an even flatter fold and have more experience with tourniquets, it's available without the retention clip. Email us after your order and we'll switch it out for you.
The New 5.5" Windlass machined from a single piece of aircraft-grade aluminum bar stock and anodized.
The Gen 4 still maintains its true 1.5" tourniquet strap which creates a wider compression pattern resulting in additional arterial compression and increased patient comfort.
Additionally, each tourniquet is shipped with two UV-resistant black rubber bands for mounting to your individual equipment.
The SOF® Tourniquet Gen 4 is approved for use by the Department of Defense, and the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care. It is the tourniquet of choice for the American Red Cross. It is used by everyone from elite military operators around the world to the largest police departments in the country to fire and EMS paramedics on the streets to civilians in everyday public places just trying to be prepared.
