Hi All

I would highly recommed the climbing harness by DBI-Sala.  I've seen it
advertised in a couple of ham magazines (I just quickly looked in the Dec
CQ and it wasn't there, so it might have been QST).  It is a full body
harness, so you won't suffocate if you fall.  It is easy to adjust and get
into.   I has leg straps, an anchor point in the middle of the back for
your secondary fall support and a hook in the middle of the front if you
are fortunate enough to have a fall arrested system installed.

It also has 2 d rings on the side for the "around the tower" belt.

I think the price was about $100 or so (US$), but I can't remember if it
comes with a "around the tower" belt.
