Gear Review

5 5

Light, Comfortable/ !Small for the Size!

I read the review below, and gotta disagree: I think the leg loops are comfortable, just as is the waste band. They don't collapse, break down, or pinch.

I really like the simple design. No extra buckles, straps, or crap to make it cluttered, heavy. Even though the leg loops don't have buckle adjustment, they DO have elastic to help them (gently) grab your thigh and not slop around.

This is my first harness with plastic gear loops- and I've gotta say, I quite like them! They're even slanted, so as to slide the gear toward the front where you need it.

I've mostly sport climbed in this harness, but have done some trad as well- and I racked everything on it, no problem. (I HATE using gear slings, so avoid them at all costs -I always rack gear right on the harness.)

***Warning***: I had to order up a size. I'm a non-curvy *lady* (5'9" 145 lbs)and needed a LARGE. Medium was definitely too small.

Type of climbing I do? Mostly trad and sport, near full-time. Was in the Red River Gorge with this March-May.
