Re: Harness and Tether Recommendations?
And I'm probably in the minority on this, but I would NEVER use a tether with a snap shackle at the harness attachment point while singlehanding, instead of the double-action style hooks at the outboard end... I understand the arguments in favor of them, but they are far outweighed by the risk of an accidental/inadvertent release, IMHO...
I have a buddy who cuts the loop on the quick release to avoid the inadvertent release. I have never has one accidentally release.
