A Tactical Tourniquet, like the ones used by special forces, have been proven to be 100% effective during USAISR testing.
It is constructed of quality, high strength materials. The tourniquet handle is manufactured from a solid piece of aircraft aluminum and maintains its strength in the most extreme temperatures. The tri-rings are molded Acetyl (a high impact plastic).
No Velcro® is used to maintain tension. This greatly reduces the chance of accidental release of the tourniquet during patient movement. The buckle performs well when dirty, muddy or sandy. All metal components are factory coated with a rust preventative lubricant.
