Harnesses are essential to maximizing the load-bearing capacity of a wearer of military-grade carrying equipment. A quality tactical harness will provide extra support and improved weight distribution while offering additional storage options for operators who must bear large amounts of weight for extended periods of time.
Harnesses have been used since the first iterations of modern-style carrying equipment were introduced to military personnel during World War I and World War II. The M-1910 web canvas and equipment provided the first semblance of extra carrying capacity supported by a chest harness for frontline soldiers who needed supplementary storage for ammunition, explosives, and protective equipment without increasing the risk of fatigue.
Modern service members use carrying equipment in and outside of the military. Within military operations, carrying equipment aids fighters and supporters from infantry to Pararescue in ensuring that they can carry out their missions to completion. Special law enforcement teams such as SWAT, FBI, and CIA use carry equipment when entering dangerous areas and performing high-risk activities. Harnesses such as the MOLLE harness allow these vital pieces of carrying equipment to provide additional function and improved support.

Features and Benefits of Tactical Harnesses:
Harnesses are a multi-functional addition to a complete carry equipment rig. Each chest harness is unique and offers variable functionality that can be used to complement specific objectives.
Additional Storage Sleeves and Pockets – Some larger harnesses are equipped with additional sleeves or pockets for storing mission-critical items such as specialized ammunition or decontamination agents.
Improved Weight Distribution – The straps on each harness pull the weight of the equipment attached to the load-bearing equipment across larger and stronger areas of the body that are capable of shouldering weight with minimal discomfort.
Special Equipment Integration – Combine your harness with a specialized belt or attachment to truly maximize carrying capacity. Equip fragmentation grenades alongside secondary weapons such and handguns and knives to make sure you’re ready for any outcome.
Common Applications for Harness Use:
Harnesses are not just for military and law enforcement use. Employ your chest harness in any tactical situation to make your carry easier.

Why Should I Use a Military-Grade Harness?
If you’re a service member, you’ll want a harness that stays fast and supports the weight you bear so you can focus on your objective. If you’re an adventurer, you’ll want equipment that won’t let you down when you’re hanging from a rock face hundreds of feet in the air.
When choosing your harness, don’t just look for camouflage as a sign of quality. Make sure that it’s made of tightly woven fabric that resists deterioration and that it’s compatible with a variety of additional accessories, especially those specific to your objective. Find out how it integrates with equipment such as body armor, carry systems, weapons, and more to see how a quality support piece such as a MOLLE harness can change the way you operate.
