CMC Rescue Harness™


Back in 1983 we designed our Rescue Harness™ to meet the needs of search and rescue better than a recreational climbing harness.



  • The D-ring attachment point made connecting carabiners easy even when hanging in the harness.
  • Extra wide waist and leg loops created more of a work platform than the slim profile of a climbing harness.
  • Today’s harness has waist and leg pads with breathable D3 cloth for greater comfort, a rear waist D-ring for travel restraint and gear loops on each side.
  • With more than a quarter-century of use-inspired evolution, our Rescue Harness continues to set the standard for superb comfort and performance.
