Re: Do you wear a life jacket?
I'd look closely at the Mustang MD3184 HIT vest/harness. A more traditional "suspenders" design for much less cost than the Spinlock, with the superior performance of the HIT mechanism. I tried one on at Safety at Sea training last spring, and it was very comfortable.
That's the model I have, and I like it. You barely know it's there. I haven't used the harness on a tether (yet), but I did use it to go up a mast and it worked quite well.
Do they make a crotch strap you can add to it?
