We use the Gemtor Class-2 harness. Gemtor recently redesigned their Class-2 for the FDNY. The changes are specifically for use with the FDNY's new personal escape system. A sliding D-ring was added for the escape bag and with the new lightweight Pompier hook, it is a real nice harness. Even though the changes were made for the FDNY, it is a nice harness for anyone.
As it applied to RIT applications, it is a "homerun"! Both as a rescuer and a victim, it has many uses. http://www.allhandsfire.com/page/AHF/CTGY/gemtor

I've thought for so long of getting a GUT belt (as in Gut brand) but I am just not sure of the utility. I have not been able to find any accessories, besides personal escape stuff, for the Gut belt and I would like to use it as a truck belt as well. Anyone know of any good accessories specifically for the gut belt?In time

I love my gemtor and I feel naked without it on a call. My station rags on me for having it but it has a million uses and counting. It doesn't get in the way and fits nicely. I recommend a left opening model in case you want a PSS (best system on the market I think).Being a fireman here in Rescue isn't what you do, it's what you are.

Yeah, it has a million uses. Once you get used to wearing it you forget it is there. Mine is lefty too."If Prometheus was worthy of the wrath of heaven for kindling the first fire upon earth, how ought all the Gods to honour the men who make it their professional business to put it out?"

Fire Innovation Belts
You guys that are using the Fire Innovation Belts which model are you using and how do you have yours set up ? In their video a second strap is added to convert the belt to a class II harness. Have any of you added a second Multi-Use strap in addition to the one that comes with the belt ? Where have you found the best prices on these belts, direct from Fire Innovations or another vendor ?
