Ferno Challenge Pro Full Body Harness
The Challange Pro from Ferno is an amazingly lightweight, full featured, incredibly comfortable harness. When I talk about comfort, I am not talking about walking around with a harness on. I am talking about being in suspension because that is what really matters.
Ferno claims that rope access is one of its applications. This is really the only thing it is not good for. Please don't try to use it for rope access. Everything else, however, is ideal. One of the very few fall arrest style harnesses that is actually ok to hang and fall when attached from the front.
A very well designed, well made, high-end harness with a multitude of uses. A solid piece of rope access equipment.
