The SOFTT - W Gen 4 is renowned for it's efficacy and ease of application.
5.5" Aluminium Windlass- The increase in length eases the process of securing the windlass into the clip and tri-ring, increasing the effectiveness of the dual retention system.
Quick-Compression Buckle- added to the tourniquet recently, allows for smoother buckle manipulation due to its rounded edges. This also allows for easier one-handed application and overall faster application time.
Made in the USA.
One of the cheapest priced CATs I can find without forgoing quality. Exact same as you would find in QAS major trauma kit.
