Petzl Avao Bod Fast Harness (Previous Model)

The AVAO BOD FAST fall arrest and work positioning harness is designed for greater comfort in all situations – including stage rigging, rescue, and rope access applications. The X-shaped dorsal construction wraps to reduce pressure points during prolonged suspension. The harness also facilitates carrying and organization of tools with multiple equipment loops and retainers for attaching CARITOOL tool holders and TOOLBAG tool-holder pouches. The AVAO BOD FAST harness has a specific construction that allows the user to hang from the dorsal attachment point for a longer time in case of a fall.
