More information on Offshore Harnesses, Tethers & Jacklines:

Available in a number of arrangements specific to the individual's body type and necessary functions. Tethers and jacklines are made of technologically advanced materials and made to detailed specifications to prevent overloading due to their relevance in terms of safety and security. Harnesses to be attached to tethers or jacklines are adjustable. High-end lines of sailing harnesses have been designed for freedom of movement while clipped in, without jeopardizing safety. Generally fabricated with super-light materials, offshore harnesses are highly adjustable to fit over foulies or sailing clothes. Many inflatable PFDs also double as a harness to ensure safety, just in case you wind up overboard.
