Personal load carrying solutions for the mining industry

Mining Vest

Increased safety

Designed to replace the traditional mining belt, the Tech Vest® mining vest has been used extensively in the underground coal mining industry throughout New South Wales and Queensland since 2001.

Personnel safety is enhanced by increasing personnel visibility using 3M Scotchlite™ reflective panels and distributing the equipment weight evenly over the upper body.


Designed and manufactured in Australia using local and selected imported components, the Tech Vest® mining chest rig is available in a range of colours and materials to suit different applications.

Increased comfort and durability

Fully adjustable at the waist and shoulders ensuring the best fit, the Tech Vest® is the most comfortable and versatile underground equipment harness and mining vest on the market today.

Using Cordura® nylon, Ultralon moisture resistant foam and a high tenacity knitted mesh made to our specifications, the Tech Vest® mining chest rig is a light weight yet tough enough to handle harsh working environments.


Not only recognized at the coal face as the “blue and black harness”,  the Tech Vest® load bearing harness was recognized over eighteen years ago by the NSW Department of Minerals and Resources as an industry innovation.
