OverviewThe Katana 2 harness sets a new standard in side mount diving. Designed in collaboration with Edd Sorenson from Cave Adventurers, Hollis developed a unique new Quick Fit System which allows users to easily tailor the one-size-fits-all harness to their specific size or adjustment preference in a matter of minutes. Hollis added more lift, more weight capacity, single and dual bladder options and the best quality materials Hollis has always been known for. Katana 2 is also the first side-mount harness in the world to be designed with closed-circuit side mount capability, with integrated mounts for the popular KISS sidewinder. Katana 2 breaks away from traditional designs and offers more customization and versatility.
Quote: Depending on location, everyone's a little bit different about how they like to set their harness up. But at the end of the day, the coolest thing about the Katana 2 is that you can run it however you want. Technical divers love to modify and tweak depending on how they've been diving in the past, or how they were taught or how they teach their students The key benefit of the Katana 2 is that those people can make all of the adjustments and decisions for themselves. -Hollis Brand Manager Nick Hollis
