T3 Trapeze Harness sets you free in seconds with a new ultra quick release system

Safety is paramount in sailing and is always a key focal point in Zhik product design. With the launch of the latest evolution of the T3 Harness, Zhik have built in a quick release velcro ripcord system which, when the shoulder buckle is also unclicked, releases the user from the harness in mere seconds. This, combined with additional optional impact protection and a perforated construction for more airflow and faster drainage, gives sailors a leading performance harness with enhanced safety credentials.
