The TRITON harnesses are LSC’s second generation helicopter-hoistable rescue harness. The 497 Model is standard equipment for the USCG Aviation Rescue Swimmers and Canadian SAR Techs. It is the best swimming harness in helicopter rescue.
Building on the foundation and comfort of the TRI-SAR harness, the TRITON offers numerous enhancements. When attached, its low-profile flotation vest provides variable buoyancy up to 35 lbs in a sleek, field-packable design. Several equipment pockets have been transferred to the waist belt for improved weight distribution and comfort. Quick release buckles on the leg straps allow for easier donning and doffing of the harness, and a chest strap ensures a better fit.The recovery hook has been updated to LSC’s Talon IIS safety hook with swivel and locking gate.
Constructed of Mil-Spec webbing and low profile, quick adjusting, stainless steel and titanium hardware, all components and materials are corrosion resistant for the marine environment.. The positioning of the hoist strap allows total use of operator hands. Ideal for rapid deployment in a multitude of rescue scenarios. Wide leg and waist straps optimally distribute weight for superior comfort and support.
