The belts i have in my prerunner are CROW
* they have built in sholder pads
* they always ajust easy
* they are under $100.00 for 5 point 3" harness at McKenzies or karteck
* they come in almost ANY color
* I did an end-over-end crash in my buggy last year, my sholders were barely brused

4. lots of colors
5. they have sternum straps available for not much more.
6. never had any sort of problem with adjustment or them binding.

I always used Simpson and liked them. However, I was checking out the Crows and they look more comfortable with a little padding on the shoulder harnesses. I saw them on the PCI web site and the price seems to be reasonable as well.

Watching the CORR race over the weekend, one of the racers in Pro 2 (Larry Gourlie) had a killer quick release system. The 5-point system also incorporates "leg" straps and the way you tighten them is reverse. Istead of pulling the strap away from you, the system has straps you pull toward you for every piece of harness. There is also substantial padding with the system.

BRAAAAAAAAP!

John,
I just purchased Crowe belts for my new under construction 9 car.
1. Construction of the belts is excellent. Excellent fit and finish.
2. They look great.
3. Good pricing through a local shop that builds NASCAR Southwest Tour cars.
4. Called Crowe with questions before ordering. It was very important to them that I got what I needed- as in very "customer focused".
I'm sure all the belt manufacturers make a great product. I've used Deist and Filler in the past and they also had excellent products. Crowe stood out and their products were readily available even when I had to order them in the style I wanted.

John,
One more thing to add. They don't come with the extra "double D" rings required in offroad. You will have to purchase extras to make them legal depending on what configuration you purchase.

JB-

I own Simpson 5-points, BUT, I purchased those prior to CROW being in business. As I understand it, CROW's are MUCH cheaper, with same quality. FYI - Fred Crow WORKED for Simpson for YEARS! So he understands the quality issues.

Save yourself some "cha-ching" and go with the Crow's!

Well I am glad you started this tread John. I am going to be getting belts soon. It sounds like crow is the way to go. I had them in my ten car and was very happy with them. I looped that car pretty good and had no injuries what so ever from the belts.

The only problem I have ever had with the crows, is that after about 75 miles in a race, they tend to loosen up a bit, and need to be snugged back down, but I guess that is true with all belts.

we have used them in our 1600 car and the7s truck as well as numerous prerun vehicles.they(crow) are indeed comfortable and affordable but do have a tendency to loosen up a bit.
