Connect Reverse 3

The third generation of the classic Connect Reverse is now available in four sizes. This makes it even more comfortable for pilots, since the geometry for the different sizes has been refined further. The well-proven design of this popular convertible harness was retained in principle, but a number of aspects were improved e.g. simplified conversion, speed bar retractor and trekking pole loops.

The Swing Connect Reverse is a classic piece of design that was amazing when it first came to the market and is now even better. Having gone through a few upgrades we have now arrived at the Connect Reverse 3. Easy to convert, lightweight, capacious and comfortable, the Connect reverse is all you need in a reversible harness.

The Connect reverse 3 comes with the “Alpine Back” carrying system made by backpack specialist Deuter®, which guarantees unequalled carrying comfort. There is an air-flow independent airbag, an integrated underseat reserve container, alongside all the usual refinements you would expect from a harness of this calibre. The CONNECT REVERSE 3 harmonises perfectly with the new generation of RAST gliders with its ideal balance between comfort and agility, making it the number one choice for anyone looking for a durable and comfortable harness for extended hike & fly tours, travelling, or simply for everyday flying.
