The sternal attachment may be located as shown in Figure 4, and used as an alternative fall arrest attachment in applications where the dorsal attachment is determined to be inappropriate by a competent person and where there is no chance to fall in a direction other than feet first.
E3.2.2 See Figure 2(a) & 4. The sternal attachment element should be used only when the likely fall distance is not greater than 2 ft.

The Nylon webbing which 390RTR the harness is constructed with is much more durable and abrasion resistant than the Nomex/Kevlar webbing used in construction of the 390FR Harness.
