    That was 7 years ago. I've been wearing HSS equipment since 2012 with zero issues. I've never even seen a carabiner from HSS that looks like that.

    Yea plus I think you're supposed to replace your harness every 5 yrs anyway.

    Early in my career decades ago I was a lineman so I am knowledgeable about the subject of being aloft and very careful about my climbing equipment. My HSS equipment all seems to be solid and nothing to worry about. I trust it and feel I am much safer using it than when older technology was used.
