Re: Harness and Tether Recommendations?
I understand the concept of force on impact, but wouldn't it be distributed throughout the harness, particularly to the webbing at the rear, and not solely on the attachment point?
That would depend how you fall. Were you perfectly facing your tether and attachment point when the load snatched up? If you're facing slightly away, the load will be on one side or the other of your rib cage with almost nothing on the shoulders. Ideally you go over like the guy in the video and take it on the shoulders.
