When front-country rescue calls for going over the edge, CMC’s ATOM™ Chest Harness provides exceptional comfort and versatility to help get the job done.
The ATOM Chest transforms the ATOM Sit or ATOM Build Your Own Sit into a full body NFPA Certified Class III Life Safety Harness.
Like other products in the ATOM Harness Series, the ATOM Chest is constructed with a polyester blend webbing that is supple, water repellent, and UV resistant.
The shoulder straps include adjustable steel slide buckles and elastic keepers.
The sternal steel D ring offers an additional attachment point for backup belay systems, suspended rope work and transitions, and upright body positioning.
On the back of the ATOM Chest is a comfortable dorsal pad lined with breathable D3 cloth and a steel D ring to support fall arrest and confined space rescue scenarios.
The ATOM Chest is compatible with a variety of chest ascenders. Visit the CMC website for videos showing how to install a chest ascender on the ATOM using CMC’s chest ascender kit.
The ATOM Chest combines with the ATOM Sit to create a secure full body Class III unit. This level of support is critical for rope technicians who need to manage heavy loads, keep their hands free, and operate complex rope systems.
