NOTE: Using a chest harness without a seat harness is dangerous or deadly if you hang in the rope longer than 10 min. Also, DO NOT use a "figure eight harness" without a seat!
For premade commercial harnesses, look at Peaks Recommended Equipment
7: TWIST BELAY on Carabiner or Ice-Axe:
Can also be used to rappel. Not recommened in rope harnesses or slings, as the carabiner turns itself out, voiding the friction needed for belay.
NOTE: As with all systems or devises, experience is needed to use them safely. Also, be anchored (Have a self belay on) while belaying others.
