This could be done with a jacket, but better to have overalls with a
webbing harness integral with the garment.
A 5-point harness, without the visible harness; always correctly
adjusted because the adjustment is in the garment, not on the vehicle.
Spring loaded ripcord style release handle
mounted on left upper
chest/shoulder releases all catches simultaneously in an emergency
by tensioning steel cables..
Normal release via a pushbutton on the console, electrically operated.
On impact, distributes decelerative forces over the entire frontal area
of the torso, and doesn't shock-load the collarbone like over-the-
shoulder harnesses can.
very vaguely related...
