Best for Ice climbing
I use this harness exclusivily for ice climbing. The front of the harness lacks a belay loop...which is really nice for putting it on with crampons on..but the harness is a bit floppy once on so I have a biner holding the belt and loop together. I love the gear loops they are perfect. I have a set of Petzl ice clippers in between them and that's enough. i have taken small falls in this and been top rope lowered...no more of my (Do I have to be PG and just say "male parts")being uncomfortably yanked about. I find that the padded harnesses move around on slick ice climbing pants more than the basic broad webbing of this harness. Really all you need for the alpine ice.
