For two years, Misty Mountain has listened to tactical operators talk about what they wanted in a climbing harness. Our ears grew big as we heard the needs of Mountain Ranger Instructors, JSOC operators, PJs and SEALs for the ultimate sit harness. Recurring themes were strength, durability, comfort, abrasion resistance, plus ease of use while wearing gloves, and strong connection points for easier, safer transitions. We knew we had to make it smooth adjusting, and burly to stand up to the nastiest environments. Plus, it had to be lightweight, and in muted color schemes. Working with our top designers and craftspeople, we've distilled their thoughts into a new climbing harness - Misty Mountain's Cadillac Tactical - a SF tactical sit harness that started out of the gate as a favorite. We took everything that we've learned designing and manufacturing the most sought after climbing harnesses for over twenty-five years, and built the Cadillac Tactical specifically for special forces operations. Designed with four T-6 Aluminum quick-adjust buckles for ease of adjustment, it's available in five different interchangeable sizes for proper fit and optimum comfort. The new Cadillac Tactical comes in a choice of two monochromatic color schemes, Black or Coyote Brown, and in a hybrid MultiCam/Coyote/Ranger Green pattern.
Features include four strong, integrated, 6" gear loops (5" in small size) with TRELLEBORG high abrasion reinforced neoprene outer layer, which has a unique tactile feel to enable finding in low visibility. TWEAVE DURASTRETCH High Tenacity Nylon knit inner layer is durable, abrasion resistant and dries quickly. Removable leg loops feature auto-block attachment loops wrapped in TRELLEBORG outer layer for clipping a carabiner into for rappel back-up. Leg loops adjust for thigh girth and dorsal rise, and include rear quick-release for drop-seat capability. Cadillac Tactical waist belt and leg loops feature wide, force distributing sub-layers built from puncture resistant SNAKEGUARD and abrasion resistant nylon CORDURA. Sub-layers spread forces over a wider surface area of 0.19" thick 4 lb LD-60 Plastizote foam padding for optimum comfort with minimum bulk. Spreading forces over a wider surface area reduces the maximum arrest forces experienced by the climber in a fall or hanging situation. Soft foam outer edges roll for comfort, and Misty Mountain's proprietary 1" flat black anodized 6061 T-6 Aluminum 2 piece quick-adjust buckles slide smoothly and lock flawlessly as needed with abrasion resistant 1" tubular nylon Climb Spec structural webbing.
Additional features include a front, 6,075 lb rated 3/4" nylon belay/rappel loop, rear haul loop, rear carabiner slots (sizes Large through XXL only) and four 3/4" lightweight bartack reinforced nylon tail tuck tabs. Waist belt features two side 11/16" elasticized tail tucks between gear loops to stow loose tail webbing ends. Front rope attachment points are nylon reinforced for abrasion resistance and durability. Strong, durable Bonded Nylon TEX 90 and TEX 70 thread provides structural integrity.
