Gear Review

5 5

super comfortable, super light

I finally decided to retire my old harness, and I am loving this harness. It is super light with flexible fabric, a tiny buckle, nice gear loops, and it packs flat and compact for travel (key element for any gear that is getting packed for a plane trip).

I am always small in Mammut harnesses, but have a rather strange sizing issue with this one. I found the elastic to be uncomfortably tight on the leg loops of this harness, in size small, while the waist fits well. I normally wear mens harnesses, because the leg loops tend to be too large for me in women's, so this is the first time I've had this issue.

With medium, the waist seems unnecessarily large, though that would probably be the right choice if I wanted to wear lots of clothes. I'm using this for summer sport climbing (single layer bottom with a sport top, maybe a long sleeved shirt on top), so I went with the size small and just cut the elastics off of the legloops, and now it fits great.

Consider sizing up one size in this, but if the legs are pinching, consider just snipping the elastic.
