    So, the cutting thing sounds easy, but think about it. With buckles, you open or snap out of them pretty easily. the cutting approach: Reach for the knife in its sheath. Release the knife from the sheath. Now bring this sharp and dangerous object right up against your body to cut through a strap all while you're racing against the clock. Not saying that single strap is not the way to go, but the cutting option sounds more like Hollywood than reality to me.

    You saw that right?
    Since this thread started single harnesses have become the norm with BP/W users and a very fast method of removal has been realized besides cutting.

    So this thread is 11 years old... But you're also living in the past it seems.



    There you are, not a single risk and it'll zip right through any harness you can think of.
