Metolius is a 30 year old family owned business in Bend, Oregon. They’ve done a great job supporting the military. Here are a couple of new pieces.


First off is the low profile Patriot harness that you can wear under body armor if needed. It’s Berry Compliant and features their Safe Tech which means all components on the harness are structurally sound, even the elastic at the rear and the gear loops. It also incorporates a locking speed buckle. This feature is actually available due to the beefy webbing on the waist.


Next is the Strike sit and chest harness combo. Once again all Safe Tech construction, but completely stripped down, no padding. Additionally, you can use it for CASEVAC. There is no rear riser so you can slip it on a patient. One size fits most. Practically made by Veterans in Bend Oregon (Berry Compliant).


Above, you have the Bravo series of carbiners. They’ve engineered these to make them hard to fail. They’ve eliminated gate flutter with a wire gate and incorporated a flared nose. Additionally, these are a little smaller and lighter (30 grams) than others on the market.


The Master Cam is a family of Berry Compliant cramming units that move already been incorporated into the US Army’s MAC Kit.


Finally, we have the Belay Rappel Descend or BRD. That’s what it does and it’s Berry Compliant. It weighs only 82 grams and accepts single or double ropes 8-11 mm.

The left harness is called the Strike. It’s an unpadded one-size-fits all sit and chest harness combo, Berry compliant will all Safe-tech features. This means every structural feature of all of their harnesses are full strength, ie gear loops, haul loop, and bungee webbing in back.


The harness on the right is the Patriot. It’s a lightly padded tactical climber/assault harness in 499 Tan. Additionally, helo gunners like this harness because they don’t have to worry about where they clip in. It’s a slightly lower profile design than traditional harnesses so that it won’t get in the way of other mission equipment.


The new Bravo Wire Gate carabiner was developed on the heels of the Bravo Key Lock. Boasting a 24 kN rating, it’s a lightweight wire gate carabiner in all Black. It’s also available in a lightweight quick draw option.


The green biner is called the Gate Keeper. It’s a locking carabiner for belaying. The additional wire gate keeps the biner oriented in the proper belaying position to avoid cross loading.
