Description

The TRITON is LSC’s second generation helicopter hoistable rescue harness with dual recovery capability. It is standard equipment for the USCG Aviation Rescue Swimmers and Canadian SAR Techs. Building on the foundation and comfort of the TRI-SAR (see below), the TRITON offers numerous enhancements. A new low profile flotation vest provides variable buoyancy up to 35 lbs with reduced bulk. Several equipment pockets have been transferred to the waist belt for improved weight distribution and comfort. Quick release buckles have been added to the leg straps for easier donning and doffing of the harness, and a chest strap added for better fit adjustment. The recovery hook has been updated to LSC’s Talon IIS safety hook with swivel and locking gate. All components and materials are corrosion resistant for the marine environment.
