The SOF® Tactical Tourniquet-Wide (SOF®TT-W) is the result of an exhaustive 24 month research initiative compiling end-user research and laboratory studies to develop a more effective, easier to use tourniquet for all environments. High-strength, light-weight alloy components are used in critical areas of function ensuring reliability in the most challenging of circumstances and on the largest of limbs. This was all accomplished while reducing the weight by an amazing 25%. The high strength hook and buckle interface was designed for security, strength and ease of application. The design allows for rapid routing of the tourniquet strap while eliminating need for re-threading the webbing through a buckle. By eliminating the requirement to re-route the webbing the tourniquet is easier to use when operating under stress and reduces application time, both of which can result in reduced levels of blood loss and better quality patient care. The SOF®TT-W also has a true 1 ½” tourniquet strap providing a wider compression pattern than most standard tourniquets, or tourniquets with a 1” constricting band moving through a 1 ½” sleeve. This broader compression pattern allows for increased patient comfort and additional arterial compression. The tourniquet handle is machined from a single piece of high strength aluminum bar stock. The strength of the handle virtually eliminates the risk of product failure. It is then anodized to minimize the products signature in a tactical environment. Each tourniquet ships with two UV resistant black rubber bands for mounting to your individual equipment.

I opened the Amazon app on my phone and ordered another before the day was out. I suddenly felt very vulnerable without it. I now carry one in my personal vehicle and should probably have another for the house.
As an aside, I really don't think you can go wrong with this or a North American Rescue CAT. A firefighter ended up tossing me a CAT when he heard I had used one that I had paid my own money for. Now I have both. Obviously I'm partial to the SOFTT-W, given our history.
While I think the R.A.T.S. looks cool, it is not an ideal replacement for several reasons. First and foremost, it is only effective for self-application. It would be difficult to easily achieve tension working on another person, even in cooperation.
Anyway... 5 stars.
