The centerpiece of our new harness is the patented (ANSI) aluminum AustriAlpin Cobra™ quick connect buckles. Cobra buckles are of the strongest load-bearing quick-release fasteners available, and will not open while under load.
We have also widened the waist strap of the harness to distribute the load across a greater surface area, which results in more comfort for the wearer. Another new feature is a Fall Arrest Indicator located near the dorsal D-ring. A stitched warning label will display if the harness has been subjected to excess forces on the dorsal D-ring.
Signature features of the CMC/Roco brand remain, including heavy-duty work-positioning side D-rings, Velcro Web Keepers, and a larger center D-ring that accepts multiple rescue-sized carabiners.
