I need to update my belts this winter and would like a set with the 2" shoulder belts to work better with the HANS device. I have G-Force belts now that are expired but may want to try something else. Pegasus doesn't even seem to have 2" shoulder belt sets on their website.
What are you guys using?? And where do you get them?

I use the Schroth Belts and am very happy with them, but at PRI I spent some time in the Safecraft booth and there product was very impressive. If I had to buy again it may depend on price between the two. I like the Schroth because you can get the laps in 2" or 3" pull up or down.

I have been happy with my SafeQuip HANS belts in my 1.6. I have G-Force in my new car and they seem really nice, but aren't 2".

Sparco 6-point with 2" shoulder & 3" lap (made by Schroth ). Previously have used Schroth, G-Force and Impact, like these the best so far..

Stu, I believe KG and Volante both have the Schroth belts in their cars if you want to see before buying.

The Safecraft belts that Mike mentioned above are the nicest I have seen. They are pricey. The belt adjustment mechanism is a machined aluminum that works smoother than any other belt I have tried.

Safecraft also has a cam lock buckle, that incorperates the "tang" and adjuster as one piece. I have found this design very helpfull in small cockpits.

I have ordered a set for my personal car and will be adding them to my website and at the classified section by mid month.
