10 Year Lifespan

Following extensive testing of our webbing and manufacturing processes, we have increased the recommended lifespan of our products to 10 years across the entire RidgeGear harness and lanyard range.


  • We tested samples of 10 year old products and found that they all still passed EN testing.

  • We did additional UV tests that simulated long UV exposure on harness and lanyard webbing.

  • The results showed that the breaking loads on all our webbing were between 85-98% of their original value, against the minimum requirement of 70% 


The 10-year lifespan is effective on all textile based products manufactured on or after January 2010 which is identifiable by the production date on the label.
