    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?

    boston leather has pretty good accessories. i use a gut belt with a home made bail out kit that fits in my pant pocket. i have a big beener with tube webbing on it and then a beener for my belt and a plate decender. all with 60' of kevlar tape/rope fits in my right pocket. i got everything from thefirestore.com for less than an evac kit

    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).

    Yeah, it has a million uses. Once you get used to wearing it you forget it is there. Mine is lefty too.

    You might want to take a look a the the PacMule over at "thefirestore.com"
    I love mine and it is real handy as a truck/escape belt. add a 8mm rope and roll
    From the firestore website:
    the PacMule is
    # Extremely light weight
    # Highly visible
    # 1-1/2” Belt webbing rated at 10,000 lb.
    # 3M Scotchlight® reflective material on front of padding provides high visibility in any light
    # Allows for hands-on ladder climbing with tools secured
    # Convenient quick tag and search line attachment
    # Provides 4" of wrap-around comfort
    # Equally distributes weight of equipment
    # 3”-wide D-rings snap out of the way when not in use
    # PacMule Escape and Ladder Belts are constructed to meet or exceed NFPA specifications
    # 3 Waist Sizes Available: Large (34"-40"), X-Large (42"-50"), XX-Large (52"+)

    I hope this helps

    Default 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 ?
