The TouRniquet of choice
Effective, fast and robust. Refined in the field and made to last, the
DNIPRO Tourniquet is your first and only choice for life-threatening haemorrhage control for limbs.
Comfortable and reliable in use, with or without tactical gloves. Made of Aluminum alloy – Duralumin. Independantly tested in Australia and stronger than then alternative windlass tourniquets.
Completely closes and securely holds across the gate. Perforated hole in tab allows you to quickly find the edge of the velcro by touch
It is extremely tensile and tear-resistant, but has a light stroke when the gate is rotated.
Increased stregnth in the backplate material and design however ensuring malleable to conform or bend to limbs. It securely holds the (reinforced) windlass retention gate. These features improve on known failure points in other models whilst ensuring the tourniquet remains flexible to conform to limbs of different sizes.
Extra padding to the sections between backplate and routing buckle, reducing pressure points and protecting tissues and skin on the limbs from pinching, increasing efficacy and reducing harm.
Convenient and reliable in operation, curved to increase efficacy and negate trauma to the underlying tissues, provides fast belt threading and will survive extremes in heat, cold, ultraviolet light, and marine environments greater than plastic.
Saw-tooth design to adequately grasp and lock the strap on application of first ‘bite’. Assists in reduced need in functioning windlass operation.
Now the outer belt does not interfere with the rotation of the gate on the platform and the twisting of the inner belt whilst additionally reinforcing the platform from below.
Added padding between the back plate and routing buckle ensuring increased comfort and better protects the skin and muscles on the limbs from pinching.
The DNIPRO is a 100% Ukrainian product and arguably the most successful tourniquet having proven its worth through the Russo-Ukrainian war. With casualties in the hundreds of thousands and almost every Ukrainian fighter making it to surgery having a least one applied, it stands to be the most succesful in modern combat history if not already.
Taco design securely holds the tourniquet enclosing it entirely and protecting, primarily, the inner nylon belt (working tensioner attached to the windlass) from harmful UV and environmental fatigue (e.g. hot-cold variations, dirt/grit and other exposures over time) reducing its strength and decreasing known chance of ‘first time’ failures.
Elasticised banding along sides allow for extra minor item retention, e.g. marker pen, cyalume etc.
