CONCEPT FRIDAY...BONUS - Prototype H Harness

After shooting the Y and H Harness video, I thought I'd try to apply what I learned from the Arbee Harness(bra type) to an H. Here's what I came up with.

I'm going to have to do some caving with this harness. Comfort is close to...if not equal to..the Arbee. This harness actually holds me even more upright.

Which is better??? Ehhh....I think it might come down to how each will be used for other activities than ascending. For example...I think the Arbee will be better for bolting.

This is a first try....still needs to get the "cinch buckle" out from under a backpack strap.

This harness has potential.

FYI I am attaching the lower legs of the "H" directly to my 1/2 round.

Caves are rare and precious things. Cavers...even more so. Treat each accordingly.
