    Smile Prism 2 use harness or CLs?

    Hi, I'm new in the Prism 2 world and I'm thinking about some modifications in my configuration to make easier don/doff. Is safe to use the countelungs instead of the harness? How do I fix my bailout without damaging the CL's? My friend here made some modifications in theirs, adding Velcro in the CL's to attach to harness and removed the original straps, also used a rubber band around belt and CL's D rings. I'm afraid to do it and damage my prism function. Please send me some ideas and pictures to help me find a solution to all those confusing straps around my body. Thanks

    Re: Prism 2 use harness or CLs?

    Hi Anaflavia,

    I always use a harness with my P2's. I have friends that only use the lungs, but I prefer a little bit more security than that. I don't attach the lungs to the waist belt using the clips. I got rid of them and just run a bungee with through the crotch strap and attached to the lower D rings of the CL's. Keeps them nice and tight, but allows me to move them a little bit in case of reaching Dry Suit valves, etc.

    For my bailouts, I never clip off the top of the neck. I just SM them by threading some bungee through the back plate to loop over the valve necks. Works really well and makes it easier to don/doff.

    If you need any pictures, you can send me a PM.

    Cheers - Chris

    The counterlung reinforcement webbing is strong enough to act as a strap so I use the cls for harness and I use a hollis buttplate with bungies attached to backplate to secure bailout. Cleans up the webbing quite a bit that way.

    Just an opinion. If possible try to configure the front and back of the harness to carry the load of the bailout.
