Yates Uniform Rappel Belt

posted Mar 2, 2013, 12:53 AM by Ken Buscho   [ updated Feb 3, 2016, 3:02 PM ]
This belt is made out of 1.5" webbing with a braking strength of 7000 pounds.  The buckle is rated at 4000 pounds.  It comes in 2 sizes:

Regular:      Waist size 24"-42"
Extra Large: Waist Size up to 57"

It is designed to be used for an emergency rappel; if you ever did a rappel with just a belt like this, you would come to appreciate the emphasis on 
emergency only.  We, however, plan to use it as a tie-in for use as a safety harness to keep you from slipping.  When you need to rappel, your kit also includes some add-on leg loops that will now let you use the combination to do a rappel. 

They come in 4 colors:
