Petzl Avao Bod Croll Fast Harness

Discontinued - Please click here for the replacement Petzl Astro Bod Fast

Please note that the sizing of the Bod Croll Fast harnesses has changed, size 0 is for a small adult (waist 23.6 - 35 inch / height 160-180cm - also consider wearing the harness with winter clothing or overalls), size 1 is for a normal 'frame' (waist 27 - 43 inch / height 165-185cm), size 2 is for the larger frame (waist 31 - 51 inch / height 175-200cm)

The Avao Bod Croll Fast harness is a re-designed Navaho Bod Croll Fast 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 harness suspension versus Petzl Navaho harness
- 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.
- Fitted with the new version of the Petzl Croll.
- Two soft links at the waist for attachment of a Podium Seat (requires two Petzl Spirit karabiners)
- 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 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 and Out of Area may be a two day delivery and overseas will be longer. For time-critical orders we advise calling us so we can process the order as a matter of urgency and confirm the delivery schedule. We cannot be held liable for any consequential loss caused by late delivery, or failure to deliver.

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.

Please allow slightly longer for the busier periods at Christmas and during the sales. All goods are subject to availability and in the event we are unable to supply your goods within thirty days you will be informed immediately and advised of the expected delivery date. Outstanding orders / items can be cancelled at any time. In instances where payment has already been made, an alternative or refund in full for the item(s) concerned will be given.

Some of the timed delivery options are available via the website, for others including a Sunday delivery, please call the office for a confirmed price and to arrange the alternate delivery. Important Note: Timed deliveries are subject to stock availability (we will contact you if any of your order is not in stock so you can confirm if you would like us to split the delivery) and must be placed by 3pm Monday to Friday (after 3pm please call us as you may still be able to catch our couriers).

Low delivery charge guarantee
If you get to the basket stage of the order process and feel that our delivery charge is too high, then simply contact us and we will look to reduce this, possibly by opting for a slower delivery service (normal deliveries are next day - except for the highlands, islands etc)

Delivery Address
Goods will be delivered, by our appointed carrier, to the address given by you on the order form. It is important that this address is accurate. In most instances the parcel will not be left without a signature. If you ask for your delivery to be left somewhere without a signature then this is done at your own risk, we will not be liable for the theft / loss of your package. Please provide us with a delivery address where the parcel can be signed for between the hours of 8:00am and 6:00pm. We are happy to arrange delivery to your place of work if this is convenient. We cannot be held liable for any consequential loss caused by late delivery or failure to deliver by our appointed carrier.

If we receive no such notification, you will be deemed to have accepted the items as satisfactory.

Collecting from store
Items can be collected from our store anytime from Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm (excluding Bank Holidays and Christmas / New Year shutdown). Please call us to confirm the day and time you would like to collect so we can have your items and paperwork ready for your arrival.

Cancellation and Returns Policy - Non trade customers

We hope you will be completely satisfied with every purchase made from Abaris International Ltd as we strive to offer you excellent quality, value and service at all times. Whilst we try to be as flexible as possible with returns, we have to be aware of the safety critical nature of many of our products, and the need for us to guarantee the safety, quality, maintenance and storage of these products.


In line with all other professional suppliers of Personal Protective Equipment / Personal Fall Protection Equipment and for the safety of all our customers, we are ordinarily unable to exchange or issue a refund for any personal safety equipment such as ropes, harnesses, helmets, descenders, ascenders, karabiners etc once the items have left our premises, or in the case of orders sent out by post / courier, received by a customer. This does not apply to any item which has arrived faulty or damaged, or if the item has been dispatched as ordered, but is unwanted due to the description on the website being incorrect or misleading.

If we have sent you the wrong item please contact us as soon as possible (latest within 24 hours of receipt of your order), and subject to the time of day we are made aware of our error, we will endeavour to send the correct item out to you the same day, and arrange delivery of that item and collection of the wrong item the next day (slightly longer for Highlands and Islands and overseas). The item needs to be in its original and undamaged packaging and with its tags / labels still attached. We will not be able to accept return of any product that does not meet these criteria.

In certain other limited circumstances we may be willing to offer an exchange or refund, but need to be notified within 24 hours of you receiving the goods and require the product to be in exactly the same condition that it left us i.e. in its original and undamaged packaging and with the tags / labels still attached. If the tags / labels have been removed then the item is not returnable under any circumstances. Any goods accepted back for any other reason than we have made an error or the item is faulty, will be subject to a 15% inspection / re-certification fee, as we are required to complete a full PPE inspection on the item before it can be deemed suitable for resale, even when an item is returned to us unused and has seemingly not been removed from its packaging. Once the item has passed the formal inspection we will refund the cost of the goods minus the 15% inspection / recertification fee. Goods must be returned to us at your own expense and must be adequately packaged to protect against damage. If you fail to take reasonable care of the goods before they are returned to us, or have used insufficient packaging to return them to us and this results in damage or deterioration, the item will be returned back to you. We recommend that all items returned to us be sent recorded delivery with insurance paid as a minimum.
