Awesome piece of kit!
I bought this to go along with my Sherpa belt, my mother canteen carrier, my G-2 Roll, and my strap kit for my bed roll. I love that I can use this to either just hold up my sherpa belt, which has my fire kit, silky saw, and mora knife, or I can attach my Mother Canteen Carrier and my G-2 Roll to the back of my Y-Harness and go completely hands free while I'm in the field. I also purchased some belt keepers (in 2", custom order) to attach my Sherpa Belt to my inner belt, so I can attach even more gear like a shelter system to my Y-Harness in the back. Not needed but thats how I roll! That's what I love about Center Line, they make your gear custom to your particular needs.
Y-Harness, Why Not?
Definitely the way to go if your purchasing the Sherpa. It adds a lot of versatility to your options of carry and adds a lot of comfort, especially when added with the strap wraps. It allowed me to find the perfect positioning for my MCC and gear roll. Even if you get the Y-Harness for your own previously owned belt. It will work.... but why wouldnt you choose to pair it with what it's intended for. Walk into the bbn woods knowing you have all of your essentials plus some on you, buy the Y-Harness and Sherpa. You wont be disappointed and as long as you have the ability to think outside of the box, you will have a thousand ways to load up your gear without feeling like your carrying a ton. Get it.
