Wholesale Climbing Ropes & Harnesses
A climbing harness is a piece of equipment used in certain types of rock-climbing, abseiling or other activities requiring the use of ropes to provide access or safety (eg industrial rope access, rock climbing, working at heights, etc.). A harness is used to secure a person to a piece of rope or an anchor point. There are three main kinds of harness. A sit string harness is comprised of a waist belt and two leg loops which are normally connected in the front of the hips through a permanent webbing loop called a belay loop. These are the most commonly used harnesses for recreational activities such as abseiling and rock-climbing, as they afford a wide range of movement while still maintaining a good level of safety. Ensuring the harness fits correctly is a key component to avoid pain in the upper thigh area, caused by the leg loops being too tight and creating a tight feeling around the upper legs and groin area. A chest harness is worn around the shoulders, usually with a sit harness so as to provide an additional attachment point farther up the body. This attachment point allows for better balance in some situations, such as when carrying a heavy pack (as the centre of mass is below the connection to the rope) and when the person in the harness may be unable to maintain an upright position (due to injury or other influences). A full-body harness is the combination of a sit harness and a chest harness which are permanently or semi-permanently connected to each other. This kind of harness normally offers a wide range of attachment points. It is most commonly used in industrial/rescue situations, and also commonly used by small children while climbing, instead of a sit string harness. Specialized high performance ropes should be used with the climbing harness and not general utility ropes. Heavy duty static ropes are generally used when using a harness for sports rappelling or any type of climbing. When falling, say 50 feet, the rope will stretch five to seven feet (average) to gradually absorb the impact. They are also durable and easy to knot. Climbing Ropes & Harnesses are also known as government issued mountain rappelling equipment, army navy rock belaying static gear, cheap discounted military safety nylon attachment, rear seated and upper thigh extensions, etc. Climbing Ropes & Harnesses are commonly misspelled as arme navee hikings and hikers geers, etc.
