About Lifeguard Water/Ice Rescue Harness

The LGS harness is the #1 harness for public safety divers. Features to look for in a water operation harness for diving and surface ice rescue are rapid girth-size adjustment capability for proper girth sizing, between individuals and for different exposure suits. Shoulder strap adjustment capability for proper height adjustments - tether point should be at solar plexus height. X-back design, not a Y-back design, to avoid any pressure on back of neck.

A stainless D-ring tether-point built into the harness that is separate from the girth- closure system. A secure girth-closure system - the Lifeguard Systems harness uses double D-rings plus a hook and loop back-up system. Parachute nylon stitching for strength and durability. Harness should have stiff material webbing to prevent the webbing from twisting, binding up, and working its way in-between the wearer's ribs.

A back D-ring tether point option for double-tether point systems for surface operations and for tethering a tender on a steep embankment. Color-coded sizing for easy and quick donning of the right harness and two tether points for attaching tools. Harness comes with a 12 month limited warranty.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Does this come w/ the shears and knife?
JOSH D  No it doesn't.
DAVID H  Mine did not come with shears or knife, nor were any advertised with it, from what I recall. I will say that the construction was very good and strong. Also, they sizes are quite generous. Although there is a wide range of adjustment, order based on intended use. If wearing over a float coat or vest, go by the listed sizing. If wearing close to the body get a size smaller.
JOHN H  No, ot is just the harness
JASON P  Unless something has changed no.
Rob P  there are 3 sizes listed. I am 6'0", 210 lbs of average build and wish to use the harness both with a wet suit and a dry suit. What size should I order?
JAMES D  I am the same height and about 190 lbs. I dive with a Viking Pro tec drysuit. I ordered a large and it fits fine over my drysuit.
FLOYD P  Hi Rob, The first harness I bought was a XL this was a little big for me even in my dry suit so I bought a Large and this fits both for my wet suit and dry suit. I am 6'4 and 230 lbs Hope this helps at 6'0 and 210 I think the large would be the best fit for you.
JOHN H  Rob - I am 6'0" and about 210, my suit coat size is 46 long and the large is a little big on me in a 3mm wet suite, I have not tried it in my 7mm. If your suite coat size is smaller than 46" you should ge the med size. I am going to have extra velcro put on my large so that I can use it with differend size wet or a dry suit. John
ORVILLE H  try the Ex Lg but that may still be tight with all that gear.
JASON P  The middle size should be sufficient.
Patrick D  Is this the same setup as a normal harness?
JAMES D  I use this harness to dive under the ice. I do not know exactly what you are referring to a "normal harness". It is excellently put together.
FLOYD P  I have used this harness for several years (now on my second harness) only for public safety diving. The D-Ring on the back for safety lead and the rings on front makes this the perfect set up for boat or land operations. This would not be good for high angle work or in my opinion swift water as there is a potential to slip out of the harness
DARRELL C  I am a Public Safety Diving Instructor. I bought this harness and use it on every PSD Dive. This harness is used for tendered diving. The set up goes under your BCD and a tender line hooks to the front. The set up is the standard rigging in Public Safety Diving. It places both your cutting tools in the "golden triangle" (the upper chest area) for ease of access and less entanglement issues. I don't know if this answers your questions, but I highly recommend this harness. I have used it for over three years. It is a standard piece of equipment on our dive team. I hope this answers your questions.
FRANCIS B  The set up is the same and the harness is nice, but the 'one size fits all' with the velcro does provide a nice tight fit as a typical commerical diving harness. It would be better designed with a buckle. The strap tends to slip through the d-rings if the velcro is not secure. The smaller divers on the team have more of an issue that the bigger divers as there is more stap length past the d-rings
