Self-retracting lifeline with D-bolt anchorage connector, versus shock-absorbing lanyard with cross-arm strap anchorage connector.Fall protection equipment, and specifically, harnesses, have benefited from tremendous advances in technology in recent years.

There are also many harnesses, such as the Tower Climbers, which are designed for a specific application or purpose. They are modified to contain different equipment, D-rings, and tool storage in different places to coordinate with the demands of the application. Harnesses nowadays are very specific in their function and fit.
