    Buckles seem pretty sturdy. haven't built the harness yet but I don't think I'll have any issues with them. and the price was great.

"OMG" Is your QR insurance paid up?

Over the years, we've heard expressions of concern regarding the safety of harness quick release (QR) buckles yet some training agency standards require a QR in the shoulder loop of the harness and for good reason. Many harnesses such as the Dive Rite TransPlate and OMS Comfort III already incorporate shoulder quick release by design. However, also over the years we've seen plenty people struggle to don and doff their continuous loop harness because: (1) they are unable perform the required "chicken wing" maneuver due to limited mobility in a shoulder, or (2) they are wearing a heavy dry suit and undergarment, or (3) they simply have a preference for exceptionally snug harness fit.

In these circumstances, it's not just annoying but the absence of a quick release buckle may actually delete safety should there be a need to quickly remove the harness. We've never seen a life threatening accident caused by the failure of a QR shoulder buckle and for that matter we never even seen the in-water failure of a QR buckle at all, but we've seen circumstances where a QR buckle made a significant improvement in assisting the diver. If you would like to add a QR but are concerned about their safety, we invite you to try the following test: In controlled conditions while swimming simply reach up and unsnap it, then continue swimming while trying some in-water maneuvers to see what happens. You'll discover that the unsnapped buckle is annoying, but it's easily manageable.
