"It secures to the class II harness at the waist strap. How good is the Velcro or snaps to secure it to the class II harness? Will they last or will I have to buy a new bag in a couple of years?"

Brandon, Good question, and hard to answer honestly. I think that it's going to depend a lot on how busy a department you run with, if your busy you will need to replace in a couple of years just from wear and tear, also if you do have to use it you will most likely want to replace it anyway. NFPA recommends that if you use your rope once for a life saving event it be placed out of service as a life saving rope. Looks like it's your choice.

"Our department is potentially looking at buying bail out harnesses and ""kits"". How compatible is this product with an internal harness?"

F4-50 compact, low-profile for common escape harnesses and belts up to 2"" wide, This is on our web page, since you are looking at this as a department purchase, why not purchase a kit, look at it see how it works, try it, also did you look at the videos on our web page?

"what all components comes with the safetech"

All 3 kits are the same Except the hook in the SafeTech has what they call a ""lighting hook"" and the others have a Crosby hook, and I don't see any difference in them.

"Hi I just wanted to ask does the SafeTech Option come with the Kit like everything that is shown? I was asking because in the description it only covers the EscapeTech and FireTech32 rope options and not the SafeTech rope option and because of the difference in price.. Just wanted to find out before I buy Thanks"

Joey, not sure what you're asking here? Our web page gives you 3 different options to pick from at 3 different prices

"Can the rescue bag be mounted on a Scott air pack?"

Captain Lewis, we are not familiar with the Scott SCBA, but we think it would fit on there somehow, it seems that it makes sense to have it on your SCBA straps no matter what SCBA you are using

"Can I get this with a Lightning GT hook instead of the Crosby hook?"

Sterling has many new kits that do have the Lightning GT hook instead of the Crosby. Please go to the below link to view all of them.
