Ultimate safety and comfort  Time owned: more than 12 months
When I was shopping for a full body harness to replace my old climbing belt, I learned the hard way. I purchased a couple of harnesses that were marketed as a "tower harness". Indeed, that's what they were. But they had features more suitable for large TV and radio towers. They came with bosun chair-like seat bars and large appendages from which D rings were attached to. They were totally unsuitable for smaller faced amateur radio towers. I finally spoke with a knowledgeable rep who understood my needs, and turned me onto this harness. When you put it on, the first thing you notice is how comfortable it is. I've worn this harness for an entire day and it never lost its comfort. It has D rings in all the correct locations. The main side rings are close to the hips and not on stalks. There is a chest ring along with a rear D ring for fall arrest purposes. There are fall arrest free hook stowage locations on the front of the harness that feature tear-away closures to prevent body twisting in the event of a slip. If you climb, small-faced towers like the Rohn G series, this harness is the one to get. You won't be disappointed. Is it a little more in cost? Perhaps. But you only get one chance, so why not go with a quality piece of safety gear.
