Tech Harnesses

Four styles to choose from, a seat harness for every need. Over three years in the making. We looked at every harness that we could (hundreds of them), picking and choosing the best features of each, combining and refining them to the point of perfection. The Tech Series Harnesses all share the following features: 3”(7.6cm) waist belt, elastic butt straps, and single pass 5000 lb.(2268kg) buckles. All webbing and hardware exceeds NFPA standards, and all bear labels certifying compliance with applicable ANSI standards.

Tech Harness Sizing

For the highest degree of safety and comfort, a harness must fit properly. The belt on all Tech Seat Harnesses may be lapped on top of itself for smaller people, or a gap of up to 8”(20cm) between the ends of the waist belt may be left to accommodate larger people. Always have at least 4”(10cm) of webbing left after buckling the single pass buckle. Tie the end in an overhand knot after adjusting to fit waist. The harness is oriented properly when the label is on the left leg.

Ropewalker Harness System

Ropewalker Chest Harness

Ropewalker Knee Harness

Ropewalker Foot Harness

A state of the art, simple‑to‑use system which allows the user to ascend a fixed line by himself. The unique system consists of three harnesses, which when used in conjunction with a seat harness and ascenders, will enable the wearer to climb a rope with a minimum of effort. At the 1987 National Speleological Society convention, Rosano Boscarino set a new world record for climbing 100’ (27.5 seconds) and 400’ (4 minutes 10 seconds) using a homemade Ropewalker system. Of course, the average climber will not achieve times to equal Rosano’s record, but it does give some ideas as to the potential. The complete system consists of the following items: one chest harness with a modified Simmons roller(Roller with Plate, page 6), fits all chest sizes from 20”(50cm) to 48”(121cm), one knee cam harness (one size fits all) with 6’(2m) of .25”(7mm) shock cord and spring snap;  and one foot cam harness, one size fits all. Super construction. All load bearing portions are made of 2”(50mm) webbing test strength 6000 lbs.(2722kg). It is a very safe system as the climber is attached to the rope by three independent ascenders. Barring rope or anchor failure above the climber, it is almost impossible for the climber to fall, as the only direction the climber can move is up. The system is available as a complete system or as component parts‑the choice is yours. Because the system is compatible with any seat harness, we do not supply a seat harness with the complete system. Weight of complete system with ascenders is 8 lbs.(2.6kg), complete with harnesses only 5 lbs. 4oz.(2.4kg), chest harness only 1 lb. 12oz. (795g), foot harness only 1 lb. 8oz.(680g). Knee harness only 1 lb. 8oz.(680g). Made in USA.
