    Default The Best Belt?

    I am looking at buying a belt for our RIT team. What are your feelings on the different belts? Any advice, or suggestions are greatly welcomed! Thank you for the help.

    I am going to comment on what I've seen. I have seen some very successfull teams simply using the belts on their SCBAs. They use large carabiners on the belt, and acts as a large handle. That way you can have a hand on your lead and a hand on your vicitm at all times. Also ensures your SCBA is properly donned.

    FDNY utilizes harnesses made by Gemtor, Inc. They have been tried and tested many times over. They are manufactured in New Jersey.
