A full body harness and tactical load bearing vest are combined offering a unique product for civilian Special Operations and SWAT personnel. This modular harness and tactical vest combination was originally developed by Survival Inc. as the Joint Services Aircrew Vest and Extraction System™ (JSAVES) for US Air Force helicopter pilots and crew.
NEW RE-DESIGN FOR 2014. The 361 was completely redesigned in late 2014. The original design was not designed by Yates Gear, it was sewn under contract for the Navy as a Helo pilot extraction harness. We always disliked there specific configuration. The redesign follows how we build other full body and seat Yates harnesses. The new design more comfortable, more adjustable and much stronger than the original military contracted JSAVES design. The new design also allowed for the integration of to rappel loops at waist level. This was necessary for Heli rappel operations out of the black hawk helicopters that do not have skids for the operator to stand on. The loops below the waist belt are to attach a gear bag during rappelling, hoisting or short haul operations.

Full Body Harness Usage and Applications:
D ring located in the rear between the shoulders (dorsal) as well as sternal D ring should be used for all Class III full body applications for general fall arrest protection. Attach only ANSI compliant lanyards to dorsal or sternal D ring. Maximum free fall distance is dictated by type of fall protection lanyard or system utilized. This could be 6 or 12 feet if utilizing energy absorbing lanyards designed for 6 or 12 foot free fall. Ensure complete inspection and verification of fall protection system to meet needed protection. Attachment of ANSI compliant shock absorbing/decelerating device is required at dorsal or sternal attachment point only for all fall arrest applications.
Two D rings (option) located on top of the shoulders should be used for lowering
situations such as in confined space rescue when a long hang time is anticipated. The use of a Y lifting bridle is recommended for use with upper shoulder D ring attachments for lowering in confined space applications.
Maximum capacity of harness is 310 lbs. per ANSI/ASSE Z359.11-2014
