Petzl Avao Bod Fast 5 D-Ring Harness

The AVAO BOD FAST fall arrest and work positioning harness is designed for greater comfort in all situations - including stage rigging, rescue, and rope access applications. The X-shaped dorsal construction wraps to reduce pressure points during prolonged suspension. The harness also facilitates carrying and organization of tools with multiple equipment loops and retainers for attaching CARITOOL tool holders and TOOLBAG tool-holder pouches. The AVAO BOD FAST harness has a specific construction that allows the user to hang from the dorsal attachment point for a longer time in case of a fall.

Note: You can replace the carabiner with a chest ascender. Here is is the Avao Bod Fast with a Croll ascender already integrated.


    • Designed for comfort in any situation:
      • X-shaped dorsal construction wraps to reduce pressure points during prolonged suspension
      • Semi-rigid, wide waistbelt and leg loops for excellent positioning; sculpted and lined with breathable perforated foam for comfort during suspension
      • Foam shoulder straps are widely spaced to reduce neck chafing; when the waistbelt is loaded, they help distribute this load over the shoulders


    • Practical adjustment:
      • Waistbelt and shoulder straps equipped with self-locking DoubleBack buckles for quick and easy adjustment
      • Leg loops equipped with FAST buckles for quick and easy opening and closing without the need to readjust them, even while wearing gloves
      • Fold-away side attachment points prevent accidental snagging


    • Facilitates carrying and organization of tools:

  • Less traumatizing post-fall position:
    • in case of a fall on the dorsal attachment point, the load is distributed over the leg loops, allowing the user to remain suspended longer while awaiting rescue
