EVOTECH Full Body Harness Phase-Out

Due to the recent addition to our V-SERIES family, the V-FIT™ Full Body Harness, the EVOTECH Full Body Harness will be officially discontinued in June, 2020.  With its new RaceFLEX™ connection, athletic cut, easy-pull down adjustment, and unique easy inspection stitch pattern, the transition to the V-FIT is an easy decision.

MSA will continue to accept orders for customized EVOTECH Harnesses until January 1, 2020.  Inventory of our standard, high running SKU's is expected to last until June 1, 2020.  We strongly encourage everyone to begin their upgrade at this time as supply is limited.

To assist with replacement harness options, please review the V-FIT Harness Conversion Guide showing EVOTECH part numbers with corresponding V-FIT alternatives.  Please note that this conversion table is simply a guide and MSA encourages users to reference the V-FIT Full Body Harness Bulletin to explore the most suitable option for their application and comfort needs. 

Please note that phase-out includes standard, construction, and stainless-steel EVOTECH Harness models, but excludes EVOTECH Arc Flash Harnesses.  These specialty harnesses will continue to be available for users in need of arc flash protection.  For further information, please contact MSA Customer Service 1-800-672-2222.
