This harness fits under the duty shirt and with a minor modification to the duty shirt, attaches to the duty belt. The Ergonomic Duty Belt Harness fits a broad range of body types and body armor packages. There is no need to purchase a specific type of body armor to accommodate the Ergonomic Duty Belt Harness. There are no moving parts to fail which means officers can wear the Ergonomic Duty Belt Harness in confidence and health every day on the job. Available two sizes that are adjustable to fit almost every officer for an MSRP of $79.99.</p> <p><a href="http://www.tactical-life.com/online/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/44h001bk_4.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-thumbnail wp-image-21588" title="44h001bk_4" height="150" alt="44h001bk_4" src="http://www.tactical-life.com/online/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/44h001bk_4-150x150.jpg" width="150" /></a></p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p>
