The only harness made especially for bowmen working at height.
Adapting climbing harness technology, the new Mast Pro is the only
harness made especially for mast ascent and working at height in the
Mast Pro is a safer solution than the traditional Bosun's chair for
ascending the mast. Fully ISO/CE certified, the harness allows the user
full use of arms and legs without the possibility of tipping out.
If I am a bowman, can I use my Mast harness instead of a Deck harness to clip my lifeline onto?
Mast harnesses fit around the waist. Deck harnesses fit around the
strongest part of the body, the chest/ribcage. Should you fall
overboard while attached onto a Mast harness at waist height, your back
is not supported and will probably break if you are not conscious to
hold up your upper body.
Can I wear a Mast harness and Deck harness together?
The Deck harness can give more support to the upper body when going
aloft if you feed the attached halyard through the loops of both
harnesses. Since they fit on different parts of the body, ie the waist
and the chest, they do not interfere.
Is the Mast harness available in more sizes?
The Mast harness is designed to fit all. Undo the adjustment straps
from the elastic belt loops and pull the belt parts together. The
smaller the size the more the belt parts will become overlapped and
vice versa. An elastic loop on the inside of the belt will hold the
overlapped parts together.
