Metal Detector Harnesses

Metal detecting is one of the best hobbies in the world, as it mixes adventure, physical activity, and the chance for some real treasures to be found. One of the biggest issues with metal detecting is that metal detectors can get heavy after a while. Luckily for detectorists, Kellyco offers tons of harnesses for almost every type of metal detector so you can stay in the field treasure hunting longer. These ergonomic harness designs are built to take the weight of your metal detector out of your arm and put it into your whole body, thereby making it much easier to hunt for a long time.

Why Do I Need a Metal Detector Harness?

Even treasure hunters in the best shape will eventually experience muscle fatigue and back pain from using their metal detector. In addition to metal detectors, detectorists have to carry a digger or multiple digging tools, a pinpointer, headphones, a finds pouch, and anything else they may also be carrying. People treasure hunting on the beach will also carry a sand scoop. Anyone who is gold prospecting will not only be carrying their gold detector, but also a gold pan. As can be seen, this is a lot of weight just in gear. The continuous swinging motion of metal detectors eventually makes it hard to continue after a few hours, as the weight of your metal detector takes its toll. Harnesses are designed to take this weight and distribute it evenly across your body. This not only alleviates shoulder and arm pain, but also neck, back, and leg pain. Essentially, a metal detector harness is built to keep you in the field longer and also to make your time in the field more enjoyable.

There are harnesses built to be compatible with virtually any detectors, whether they be Garrett metal detectors, Minelab metal detectors, Bounty Hunter products, or any other brand you use. Most of the best sellers for metal detector harnesses have several features in common.
