Safety Direct's complete line of lightweight harnesses are manufactured in Canada and have a proven track record for comfort and durability.

The PARACHUTE STYLE HARNESS is made of durable polyester webbing with quick connect buckle fasteners. Grommeted leg straps are offered as an option to the quick connect buckles. Adjustable leg, shoulder and chest straps can be positioned to the optimum location for the worker and will stay in place. The sub-pelvic strap evenly distributes the forces generated in a fall. Webbing is available in standard red and black, or can be special ordered in custom colors. The Kevlar® and maximum visibility webbing is available in one color only.


All harnesses meet or exceed CSA Z259.10-06 certificaton and comply with ANSI Z359.1-1 2007.


Standard capacity is one person weighing up to 310 pounds (141 kilograms) including the weight of tools and clothing. All of our harnesses are available in custom sizes from Small to 4XL. For capacities over 310 pounds (141 kilograms), please contact us.


Harnesses are constructed from synthetic webbing because of it's superior strength and consistency.

  1. Nylon (Polyamide) is a strong and cost effective material suited to most fall arrest applications. It has good strength to weight ratio, good abrasion resistance and is unaffected by alkalis.
  2. Polyester has superior strength and chemical resistance when compared to nylon.
  3. Kevlar® has similar strength properties to polyester with added resistance to heat, flame and sparks.
  4. Maximum Visibility has five rows of reflective material on both sides of the blaze orange polyester webbing.
