Chinook Medical SOFT Tourniquet (SOFTT)

Chinook Medical Gear

The SOF Tactical Tourniquet (SOFTT) by Tactical Medical Solutions is easy to apply, 100% effective, and provides reliable hemorrhage control. The SOFTT is available alone or may be purchased with a protective Universal Tourniquet Pouch (UTQ) to keep it on-person for quick access.

The Special Operations Forces Tactical Tourniquet (SOFTT) is proven to be 100% effective during US Army Institute of Surgical Research testing. It uses the same application method for arms or legs, which minimizes training and reduces the risk of mistakes in the field.


Benefits and Features

  • Durability: The SOFTT is constructed of quality, high-strength materials. The tourniquet handle is machined from a solid piece of aircraft aluminum and maintains its strength in extreme temperatures. The tri-rings are molded Acetyl, a high-impact plastic that will also maintain its strength in extreme temperatures.
  • Reliable: No hook-and-loop is used to maintain tension. This greatly reduces the chance of accidental release of the tourniquet during patient movement. The buckle will also perform when wet, dirty, muddy or sandy, unlike hook-and-loop fasteners.
  • Safety set screw prevents accidental release of pressure during tactical patient movement.
  • Dual locking rings provide a backup in the event of a broken ring.
  • Low maintenance: Safety screws and buckles are factory coated with a rust preventative/lubricant.
  • Repairable: The SOFTT can be easily repaired if it is damaged. 550 cord, boot laces or zip ties can be used to replace the tri-rings. Nothing is indestructible and being able to repair equipment in the field is a necessity for soldiers.

A tourniquet can be a lifesaver, but only if it's readily available. The UTQ is an inexpensive and simple method to keep a tourniquet on your person and protect it from harmful UV rays. The UTQ is MOLLE, PALS and duty belt compatible, Berry Amendment Compliant, and Made in USA.
