Sam XT Extremity Tourniquet

For hundreds of years, the tourniquet has functioned as a lifesaving tool on the battlefield and in search-and-rescue operations. The goal is simple, to prevent continued blood flow to an amputated or severe wound, thus preventing a fatality via blood loss. However, the application of a tourniquet is crucial in its effect, which is why the Sam XT looks to ease the application process while upping the reliability factor of this tool.

What makes the Sam XL Tourniquet unique is the piece’s buckle technology, which auto-locks the device when the desired pressure is reached, eliminating all tourniquet slack. It’s made from 100 percent nylon and the Sam XL’s TruFlex plate distributes targeted circumferential pressure where necessary. Its metal windlass rod is also machined out of lightweight 6061-T6 aluminum, and the precision strap offers enhanced support resulting in increased stability and safety. This piece comes in either all black for the military or orange and black for civilians and is engineered to preserve life during the most crucial of moments. While there is no word on pricing at this time, it is currently available for order through their website. [Purchase]
