Petzl AVAO BOD FAST full body harness (ANSI, CSA & NFPA)


  • Comfortable fall arrest, rescue, and work positioning harness
SKU: N/A Category:


The AVAO BOD fall arrest, work positioning, and rescue harness is designed for greater comfort in all situations. 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 CARITOOLs and TOOLBAG pouches. The AVAO BOD 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.

Selling points

      1. – X-shaped dorsal construction wraps to reduce pressure points during prolonged suspension.
      1. – semi-rigid, wide waistbelt and leg loops for excellent positioning; sculpted and lined with breathable perforated foam for comfort during suspension
      – foam shoulder straps are widely spaced to reduce neck chafing; when the waistbelt is loaded, they help distribute this load over the shoulders

      1. – available with leg loops equipped with self-locking DoubleBack buckles or FAST buckles for quick and easy opening and closing

      – in case of a fall on the dorsal attachment point, the load is distributed over the leg loops, allowing the user to remain suspended longer while awaiting rescue
