Default Crow Harness - RV6/RV7/RV9/RV14

Well, I received my Crow Harnesses today, aside from the insanely quick shipping here is a quick "Out of the box" review of them. Firstly, I ordered directly off the website and chose the Kam Lock RV6/RV7/RV9/RV14 Restraints with Pads in the Pro Series with Black Hardware (2" width). I did not choose the 2" Aluminum adjusters option as when I called Crow to ask about how they differed, they told my they were a cleaner look and weighed about the same as the regular hardware. Since I really want the red pull tabs on the black belts. I opted not for that option adjusters.

Immediately on opening the box, I knew I made the right choice with Crow. Just as everyone attests to, they are perfection in every way.

Straight away much of my pre-order concerns where taken care of at first glance. The Kam lock itself is much nicer than previous pictures on the forum as it now looks similar to those used on the Hooker Harness setup. The diameter is 2 5/16" and they are about 1 1/4" thick.

I was most happy with the attachment fittings. Reading past reviews it seemed that modification was required for the bolts but it seems that this has now been rectified. The crotch strap is not sewn at the bottom attach point allowing it to be adjustable and have that fitting in the pre-cut opening of the Van's attach bracket. The crotch strap attachment fitting is drilled for an AN5 bolt.

The lap belt and shoulder harness attachment fittings allow for an AN4 bolt.

I pulled out the scale and one complete set of belts (for one person) weighs 1585 grams or 3lbs 7.9oz.

I am extremely happy with my purchase. Hope this answers some questions for you to help make your decision.
