SHOT Show 17 – GSS Gear / Integrated Stealth Harness-TQ / Misty Mountain 

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

Ish Antonio is well known in the Rescue community and he has come up with a new harness. Manufactured by Misty Mountain, the Integrated Stealth Harness-TQ. It’s unlike anything I’ve seen. The ISH-TQ offers such a low profile, you can wear it all of the time and you’ll have an extra tourniquet at hand as well. In the photos, the Harness is demonstrated on a mannequin so it won’t tighten as well as on a human.

For hasty rappel or hoist mode, you pull the loops down over your rear.

To employ the Full class II Harness, engage the leg loops which attach via Austrialpin buckles.

Additionally, the harness can be employed as a Tourniquet while worn on the leg.

The carabiner is used as the windlass.

It can also be removed from wear and employed on arms or others.

Interested parties should contact www.mistymountain.com or email Ish at i.antonio@ishgear.com. Naturally, GSS Gear will help out with Unit and eganxy purchases.

Misty Mountain Wants To Make Sure You’re Using The ISH Chest Harness Properly

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

Misty Mountain has been designing and building climbing equipment for over 30 years. We highly value the trust of our customers and strive to provide them with the highest quality gear. We have recently become aware of instances where our ISH Chest harness has been used incorrectly. We want to make sure we do our best to inform operators on the proper use of the ISH Chest harness and prevent misuse.

The ISH Chest must be used in combination with a sit harness. The proper way to tie-in is to pass the rope through both the chest and sit harness tie-in points. This is the method for attachment that the ISH Chest has been tested to and certified by the UIAA. This is the only method of attachment that has been third party tested and approved.

For users who want a higher single point attachment for activities like insertion and extraction, we have discovered a way of doing this with the ISH Chest and a sit harness that relies upon attachment to the top of the load rated adjustable tether that connects the ISH Chest to the sit harness. This method has been tested by Misty Mountain in-house and is load rated to 15 kN. Please note that this is NOT the method by which the UIAA tested and approved the ISH Chest, and this method has NOT been third party tested or approved.

The user should never tie-in or attach solely to the ISH Chest sternum loop. The ISH Chest harness was not designed for this direction of pull and will fail if misused in this manner resulting in serious injury or death.

Please review the attached ISH Chest Technical Notice. Please contact Misty Mountain if you have any questions about the use of this product.

Misty Mountain is redesigning the ISH Chest double buckle piece to reduce the potential for misuse and this redesigned unit will be incorporated into all ISH Chest harnesses beginning in 2017. We are currently having this information translated into Spanish and we will provide this translated notice as soon as it’s available.

Misty Mountain Cadillac Tactical Climbing Harness

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

At Outdoor Retailer, Misty Mountain showed me their new Cadillac Tactical Climbing Harness but it was still a few weeks from release. But now, it’s fully available.

Misty Mountain is well known within the relatively small cadre of military mountaineers. They reached out to these customers before beginning work on the Cadillac and asked what these professionals were looking for. According to Misty Mountain, they were repeatedly told, “strength, durability, comfort, and abrasion resistance, plus ease of use while wearing gloves, and strong connection points for easier, safer transitions. Make it easy to adjust, lightweight, and super burly so it can stand up to the nastiest environments.” Taking this guidance they set out to create the Cadillac Tactical sit harness.

They’ve used the latest materials to create this harness. Misty Mountain’s description is more than adequate:

The new Cadillac Tactical features a monochromatic color scheme, four quick adjust buckles for ease of fit, four strong, integrated nylon gear loops with TRELLEBORG high abrasion reinforced Kevlar fabric. TWEAVE DURASTRETCH High Tenacity Nylon inner layer is durable and abrasion resistant. Removeable leg loops feature auto-block loops for easy rappel back-up, adjust for dorsal rise and offer quick release option. Wide, layered comfort comes from tough 1000 Denier CORDURA nylon laminate sublayer to spread forces over a wider surface area of closed cell, cross-linked .25″ EVAZOTE foam padding. Soft foam edges roll for comfort, and black anodized 6061 T-6 Aluminum 2 piece quick adjust buckles work smoothly but lock as needed with 1″ tubular Climbspec nylon webbing.

Cadillac Tactical harness strength rated to 16 kN (3,600 lbs), gear loops and rear haul loop rated to 10 kN (2,250 lbs).

The Cadillac is a sized harness offered in XSmall – XXXLarge. Berry compliant and available in Coyote or Black, if you’re at Modern Day Marine next week, stop by the Extreme Outfitters booth and check out Misty Mountain.
