Gear Review

5 5

Great harness, especially for the price.

This is a really nice harness, and when you consider the price it becomes a five-star best-buy item without a doubt. The comfort rivals any harness I've had; the support is fantastic in a reasonably light and packable unit. I particularly appreciate the ability to adjust leg loop dimensions on the fly at hanging belays. The gear loops are fantastic, and the leg loops drop easily despite the old-school hook design.

I only have two gripes. 1) The leg loops can't be completely removed at bivvies so that you can sleep with just the waistbelt/swami portion of the harness. For that reason I wouldn't recommend this harness if you were planning on a route with multiple bivvies. 2) The buckle is a bit difficult to loosen compared to similar designs from other manufacturers. For some this might be seen as a bonus, but I find it annoying.
