    Harness Break suggestions Please

    Had a really good dive today on a Rhib out of Newhaven today however getting back in the boat was a struggle to say the least.

    Getting out of my one piece harness was a right workout!

    I dive twin 12's. Has anyone got any suggestions for a strong and robust break I can install on my webbing?

    I know the DIR lot will have a fit but I keep my diving simple and don't go in caves etc!

    Thanks in advance.

    The DIR lot won't give a shit what you do lol, what you do with your gear is up to you. I only get involved in debates about this sort of thing if people start spreading misinformation about the GUE configuration.

    I had a OMS harness when I had twins, and it had a break in both sides. You can just get a regular buckle and add it in, I used to have this one:

    Get yourself the Harpa, it's an expensive Dring made by Agir Brokk (various other manufacturers make similar ones) the webbing on your harness just glides through it but when harness is done up it locks everything into place. Makes getting in and out of a harness a doddle and you don't have to have any breaks. Got mine on my left side and love it.

    Alternatively I have seen a video on YouTube of someone removing the whole rig by pulling it over there head like a tee shirt in about 5 seconds but that's a little bit adventurous for me so I'll stick with my expensive Dring

    I use one of the ap push to unclip clips. Not the one you sqeeze this types I think says press on the front. I have it about ten inchs up from the bottom thread holes on the back plate. Had one on a harrness for so long the webbing wore out, never had a problem with the clip. I have no adustment in harrness just got local cobbler to stich it in.

    I modified a OPH with a left hand shoulder break. I added a break just below the left shoulder D ring. If it ever broke the stage would have held it in place.

    In the end I ended up swappng it out for an OMS Comfort Delux. Dive what suits you and feck what anyone else says
