In general, our hoist harness is constructed without shoulder straps in order to secure maximum comfort and to allow the winchman to move his legs freely in order to support the rescued person during the hoist ride to the helicopter.
Likewise, to prevent the winchman to slide in case of a head down position, the harness has a unique design of the front part, where the waist belt locks itself on to the hips. It is important that each winchman has a harness that fits him perfectly, which is why our harnesses come in different sizes.
Custom designs can usually be made upon request, if the EC type certification is not breached. In short, we have a hoist harness for every winchman.
MULTIPLE WAYS OF SUSPENSION
All Lite Flite hoist harnesses feature their specially made tang for Quick Release Box, QRB. Some harnesses are delivered with an additional D-ring in front of (shown) or behind the QRB tang. The latter can be utilized by using a karabiner suspension strap.
