    Adjustable Harness - Agir Harpa or KT Winch

    I'm thinking of replacing the break in my harness with a one piece adjustable for use with twin 12s (previous injury makes a standard OPH difficult)

    Does anybody have experience with either the Agir-Brokk Harpa or the Kent Tooling Winch?

    The d-ring accessory thing with the Halcyon cinch looks quite good, although I've seen quite a few negative comments about the cinch, putting me off this.

    They both work very well.
    The KT one is GUE compliant though if you are looking to do Fundies in the future.
    I believe John sells his winch in pairs.
    I actually sell them one at a time as I do not see the need for two.

    Adjustable Harness - Agir Harpa or KT Winch

    I've got both and the KT one just doesn't work, tried it with a few different type of webbing but there's just too much friction for it to work (mate has tried them as well and had the same).
    You also need to add washers to push the backplate away from the cylinder, if you don't then the cylinder pushes against the webbing trapping it.
    Then tried the Harpa loop, left side only, and it works brilliantly with different brands of webbing, really can't fault it.

    Really?, I just fed mine on the webbing and they work everytime, no problems.
    Different strokes I guess.

    I haven't tried the KT version so this isn't really a comparison, but I do have the Harpa (left side only) and can say it's very simple and works well for me.

    Highly recommended. Just make sure it fits your backplate slot as the 'standard' slot size seems to have expanded over the past few years. I think Deep Ideas do current and old-timer versions.

    I agree. I had a KT one for a few dives and had the same problems. I ended up selling it for what I paid for it

    Been using the agir harpa , on both sides, for the past couple months. Seems great does what it's meant to. No experience of the KT kit.

    I have the KT winch on a Halcyon backplate.

    It works great for me.

    KT winch doesn't work?!

    Had it on my red hat back plate well over a year and its working. No need for extra washers on mine, my back plate already has enough of a V shape to stop the tanks trapping webbing
    Why is it that with everything in life I always find a more difficult way of doing it (and not intentionally)

    Adjustable Harness - Agir Harpa or KT Winch

    Does this harpa thing come on it's own or do you have to buy all the webbing paraphernalia with it as well? Interested in the thing but not 37 odd quid for the rest of it.
