Petzl Avao Bod Fast Black International Harness

Limited stock in Size 0 for urgent orders please contact us for availability

ANSI approved full body harness with triact karabiner and fall indicator in all black. Ideal for riggers, military or those in the wind turbine market. The Avao harness is a re-designed Navaho with some great new features:

- An X-shaped dorsal (rear top) section which has a 'double yolk' (an inner and and an outer section) is linked through to the leg loops ensures that the pressures exerted on the user during suspension are distributed better and offers greater comfort. When in suspension from the dorsal attachment the pressures are on the more evenly distributed rather than being solely distributed on the waistbelt as was the case with the Navaho Bod).
Petzl Avao Bod Harness Dorsal Attachment Point Suspension
- The waistbelt and leg loops have been widened (deepened) to limit pressure points and give better support as well as now being lined with perforated foam to allow for better ventilation and provide more comfort.
- The leg loops feature re-designed 'Fast' buckles which now operate using a pinch type motion rather than a single finger push providing even greater security, but still have the looped over design to ensure that even if the fast buckle unlock action is somehow triggered when being worn, the buckles are highly unlikely to come undone when the user is in suspension (no chance a casualty in rescue or protestor in public disturbance can release them).  
- The two side D's can now be flipped back against the waistbelt to reduce the risk of snagging.
- The Avao now has five gear loops which combined with the retainers for Caritools offers plenty of space to store equipment.

Like the Navaho:

- The waistbelt and leg loops are semi-rigid and pre-shaped to make the harness easier to put on.
- The harness waistbelt and shoulder straps feature self-locking DoubleBack buckles which do not require re-threading to be locked.  
- Foam shoulder straps widey spaced to reduce neck chaffing.

We hope everyone has an enjoyable and relaxing Christmas and wish you a happy and healthy New Year. 

We pride ourselves on our rapid service and aim to despatch all orders promptly. The majority of orders placed before 3pm Monday to Friday are sent out the same day as the order is received and delivered the next working day - See below for information on timed and weekend deliveries (This is dependent on stock availability, we will contact you on the rare occasion something is out of stock). Orders to the Highlands, Islands may be a two day delivery and overseas will be longer. Please also note that our cheaper non-courier delivery (via Royal Mail) can take in excess of 3 days. For time-critical orders we advise calling us so we can process the order as a matter of urgency and confirm the delivery schedule.

Please note that orders placed after close of business Monday to Thursday will be processed the next day. Orders placed after close of business on a Friday or at a weekend will be processed on the Monday.

If you opt for courier delivery you will receive an email or text on the day we dispatch your order informing you that it is enroute, and a further email or text at around 7:30am on the morning of the day of delivery, giving you a 1 hour window when your delivery will arrive.

For operating efficiency we reserve the right to send your order via courier rather than Royal Mail (you will not be charged any additional amount for this upgrade).
