Re: Harness and Tether Recommendations?
I'd also like to order a strobe that clips on the PFD bladder, but not sure which of the many ones
to order. What strobe do you have? I see from Mustang's photos that there is a little strap on the inflatable bladder to hold a strobe on the left shoulder. Which model strobe fits there the best?
That is actually a manual inflation tube. ACR makes a strobe that fits over it.
The clip on the bottom attaches to the bottom of the pfd. When the pfd inflates it pulls out a tab and starts the strobe.
That is what I have.
While wearing a tether, also have a knife on a lanyard that can sever the tether if need be. There are lots of discussions about which one is best. I use a Wichard rigging knife. I keep it and a small Mag light with a red lens in a case on the belt of the pfd.
