NOTICE: 390FRC Harness is only recommended for use in a work environment where Arc-Flash hazard exists. For daily work use in non-energized situations the standard 390RTR harness is recommended. The Nylon webbing which 390RTR the harness is constructed with is much more durable and abrasion-resistant than the Nomex/Kevlar webbing used in the construction of the 390FR Harness.
