Product Description

We've made these childrens' harnesses more appropriate for little boaters by reducing the hardware and webbing size so they weigh only ounces, yet withstand a 1,000lb. pull on the chest strap. We use strong, 1"W nylon webbing and a rugged, nylon Nexus, side-buckle/adjuster. The harness is worn tether forward and ties into a simple webbing loop to further reduce weight. A cross-back strap keeps the shoulder straps in place. Use with or without the between-the-legs strap, which stabilizes the harness against upward pulls. Tether sold separately.

      No ring to clip in on harness. What's the point.

          Harness has no ring to clip in. How are you supposed to attach a safety line.

            Best made and most adjustable kids harness available. Used for our daughter since 15 months old. She's 3 years old now and the harness should fit for many years to come. We are buying a second for our 14 month old son now. My only complaint besides cost (but that's obvious) is that you really have to exaim it everytime you put it on because of the way the shoulder straps cross in the back. You'll definitely get used to it, but its not entirely intuitive.

              Comments about West Marine Child's Safety Harness:

              I used these when sailing with just me and the kids. I gives me added security knowing the my kids can go up on the bow in choppy weather and I can stay at the helm without worrying about them falling off.
              Kids don't find them uncomfortable which is a big plus.
