Designed for Rope Rescue and Rappelling Back in 1983 we designed our Rescue Harness to meet the needs of search and rescue better than a recreational climbing harness. The D-ring attachment point made connecting carabiners easy even when hanging in the harness. Extra wide waist and leg loops created more of a work platform than the slim profile of a climbing harness. Today's harness has waist and leg pads with breathable D3 cloth for greater comfort, a rear waist D-ring for travel restraint and gear loops on each side. With more than a quarter-century of use-inspired evolution, our Rescue Harness continues to set the standard for superb comfort and performance. Work Safety The CMC Rescue School offers training classes for work-at-height rope access and rope rescue. Some courses may include instruction about proper use of the Rescue Harness or similar harnesses used in rope rigging systems.
