Buckingham Ergolite Harnesses

Recommended Posts

I have the ergolite. If you use a normal crab it an get hung up on retainers that hold your rope bridge because the gape in the crab is larger than the rubber stoppers

That makes sense.

What about a chainsaw lanyard attachment on the back? and positioning a snap gate biner on each hip?

Thanks for your help so far.

I put a few caritool clips on it which you can use onrme to clip your saw on and I put a crab on my strop and I attach it to the tool loops on the back . Your side D's are easy to find withut looking with your snap locks.

Try one first before you buy it ill suit you straight away or it wont

 

 

I tried it on in a shop and had a good lean on it, twisting round trying to simulate various work positions.

It felt good but I was slightly detected by the short bridge and lack of chainsaw lanyard attachment on the back.

Would mounting a swivel on the bridge have the effect of elongating the bridge ? And I put a crab on the end of my chainsaw lanyard to clip on the to one of the loops on my back and then I got a Capitol clipped on my hip to hang it off

What loop is on the back Richie and is it for a chainsaw lanyard?

I was toying with the idea of getting one of these as they appear to be similar to my current harness the don blair. I like the Don Blair as it's got a lot of back support, large d rings, capable of hanging large saws off it etc. Can't help you with the Buckingham harness but if you like the look of that then look at the Don Blair as an alternative, it looks a bit historic and definitely not one for the cool kids!
