I'm curious what your thoughts are on the safety harnesses available in the market?
What are your favorite harnesses out there? Is the NFPA rating important when your training just as much as it is on the field? What would you change with the current harnesses out there?
Are we talking about a rescue Class III harness? A truckman's belt? Harness integrated into bunker pants?
We use the big CMC Class III rig for TRT. I think they are to bulky and am going to buy a Yates harness when I get off injury leave.
Class III rescue harness such as the Yates Voyager, PMI Avatar, and Petzl Navaho to name a few. What do you like about the Yates harness?

There are many out like the Yates, but for the price, simplicity and of comfort I just like it. And Petzel is French, I just hate that.
