    Default RIT Rescue P.R.E.S.S.

    Anyone have any experience with using the "P.R.E.S.S." Bail-out system by RIT Rescue? Was looking at various systems and this system looks good & reasonable and may be easy to integrate into our existing harnesses that are internal in our bunker pants.

    If you get the PRESS with the hook and their AL descender, you have a similar, not the same, system to an EXO set up. The descender is also a dead man type descender, let go and stop. This can be placed on a belt. You do not need to be trained as you do with an EXO. I highly recommend you get trained and stay proficient with whatever system you decide to use. If you need more information, email me jason@Jbrescue.com. RIT is in my backyard and I sellthe PRESS system.

    JB - Thanks for the info. Training will be mandatory on a continual basis, but I am looking for a quality / simple to use system that everyone can easily master. I am trained and very familiar with the exo system (good system), but I think I the new "PRESS" with webbing & new AL descender will be easier for our members. Any pro's / con's to the webbing vs. rope? Does the webbing meet the NFPA requirements for the bailout systems? We thought we would use the webbing to make the bag more compact, but didn't know if it is more difficult to feed through the descender device.

    It's a well thought out system. Fire-Dex is putting them in their custom gear. I don't think you could go wrong here.
