Reduce until it's just enough.

The Arc'teryx S220 LT Harness takes minimalism to a whole new level by giving you all the features you need at a scant 220 grams. A woven fabric replaces traditional waist-belt construction while increasing comfort at the same time. Arc'teryx also used a perforated fabric for the leg loops, so they're more comfortable to walk in and don't interfere with breathability.

Awesome harness

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Bottom line: I'm a bicycle commuter, and I'm sick of carrying around a big clunky harness every where I go. This is harness is awesome.

My friend lets me borrow his harness when I forget mine at the gym. I'm pretty forgetful, so I've used it a bunch of times. Finally, I'm getting my own. For me, the harness is super comfortable, and packs down into nothingness. I probably wouldn't use this to trad (because of the lack of gear loops), but this is the harness for indoor or sport climbing.


  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Just barely lighter than the super minimalist BD couloir, but IMO more comfortable as the waist band is wider and less abrasive. You do have to put your legs through the loops, but I've done this with crampons on and it's not that bad. It's comfortable IMO, if you're hanging it's better to push the leg loops down a bit toward the knee.

I'm 6'4", 220 pounds, athletic build, got a large. Waist and leg loops seem to be just the right size.

Old Color: Chartreuse

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Fell in love with this harness simply because of it's colors. Then loved it s even more after learning its weightlessness. This harness is great for indoor and outdoor sport climbs. Packs down greatly in the bag that comes with harness. Would recommend to anyone looking for a lightweight harness that wants to be able to carry enough quickdraws and a belay device out to the walls.

My friend bought this harness...

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

My friend bought this harness and while he doesn't like it for comfort reasons, I think its pretty nice. The seriously ventilated leg loops are nice. Its very light and very packable. My only complaint is that it doesn't have a haul loop. It leaves me wondering what discipline of climbing its intended for where I don't need a haul loop. Oh, and it fits exceptionally well with a backpack because of its low profile, lack of rear gear loops, and the aforementioned lack of haul loop.

Otherwise, I dig it.

Super light!

    This is the first harness I ever purchased (I previously just rented them from the rock gym) and I love it! Its so light and it fits just how i needed it to. The leg loops fit snug and don't ride up or rack your crotch when you fall. The only bummer is that there is only 2 gear loops.


    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    okay, so this harness is SUPER light, and super compact, i use it for sport climbing and it has been great, but be sure you get the right size. try it on, make sure it fits right!! if it doesnt send it back and get a different size or a different harness. i mean not every harness is going to fit every person just right! it also took a few climbs for the foam or whatever to become comfy! but its an amazing harness for guym/sport or anything where you are only hanging in your harness for a short amount of time!

    Super light, super uncomfortable

      Bought this harness to replace my current gym harness that had begun to show signs of wear. The first time weighted it the leg loops began to cut into my legs. I then let a few of my friends try it out and they were all not pleased with the comfort. It is super light which is nice, but for my use as a gym harness i'd prefer some comfort.

      Size Up!

        The sizing chart on Arc'teryx' website states that a Medium will fit 31" - 34.5" waists, and that the ideal fit is with a one inch overlap in the ends of the waist belt. Well, my waist is 32.5" around, and a medium barely fits on me with a two inch GAP between the ends of the waist belt.

        I suppose I'll be exchanging this for a large before I get a chance to climb in one, since I'm not about to climb with two inches of 1/2" webbing digging into my waist.. Good news is it looks great and is SUPER light. I look forward to getting the right size!

        Light and right

          This harness is so light and packs so small I sometimes have to double check that I actually brought it with me when I'm heading out. It is super flat which I like as it sits nicely over my clothes and under my jackets and personally I love the bright colors. The leg loops are very minimalistic and I certainly wouldn't want to dog in this thing for hours or belay the super proj, but for quick burns on the climbs I'm interested in. This was the ticket. This was a replacement for my Hirundos which is officially hitting the old folks home and retiring.

          Hi Arthur,

          I see you've climbed with Hirundos before, and now have this harness. My hirundos is ready fo replacement as well, after a long time of great service. So I wondered:
          How do the size of the S220LT and the hirundos compare? Could I get the same size?
          And I like the fact the the hirundos stays low on my waist as I climb and as I belay. Does the S220LT do this as well, or does it crawl up and then dig into the ribs, like many others do?
          Then the last thing, which might be related to the previous, but still... are the sizes of the belay loops comparable between the two?

          Well, a lot of questions, but I hope you don't mind answering them. It would be very helpful for me!

          Thanks a lot in advance,

          I have purchased several Arc'teryx harnesses,...

          I have purchased several Arc'teryx harnesses, basing my size choice (Med) on the manufacturer's chart provided. The legs fit fine, but none of the waist belts ends met, in the front. I'm lean with no "gut" so I don't understand. The fit video at Arc'teryx says the two ends of the waist belt should meet, and can even overlap. What's up? If I go to a Large, the legs will be way to big. Anyone else find this problem?

          I've seen people struggle with this kind of fit issue.

          Arc'teryx harnesses do seem to have a love-it or hate-it fit...and some people just aren't shaped the same way as the harness manufactures' mannequins ;-).

          I might suggest you try a harness with adjustable leg loops. That way you can better dial in the fit. It will also be a more versatile harness overall.
