Great for Ski touring

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The harness was fantastic for fitting a growing eight year old this winter both on and off Piste. Needed to use a harness to ski on the Mer de Glace as we made it down the Vallee Blanche from the Aiguille du Midi. The leg loops fit nicely over ski clothing, but also were easy on and easy off with ski boots already on her feet.

She also loves to use the harness at the climbing wall. With her lack of defined waist, the A-Bod Harness was very good giving her the comfort and hold that she needs.

So far so good

    My son is 8 years old and the harness fits him perfectly, and with room for growth. It's just like an adult harness, and it collapses well for compact storage. It doesn't cut in on him anywhere, and with one climing day in it, so far so good in terms of comfortability.

    Got this parent's confidence

      Bought this for my 8-year old daughter. She's pretty tall for her age, but skinny as a beanpole. Although the leg loops are a bit loose on her, she hangs in it securely and comfortably. I took her to the crag for the first time 2 weeks ago and she loved the experience. This will work great for a safety rope on more technical hikes as well.

      Best investment for parents

        Many childrens lives could be saved if parents will just put this harness on the kids especially in the mountains.

        The peace of mind of knowing where your child is, is well worth the investment.

        I'm curious about your wording: "especially in the mountains." Are you proposing even around town they should wear this thing? Maybe at home too? And "knowing where your child is" also seems strange... this is not a child restraint system to keep them tethered to you... Best is to get a GPS tracker implanted to be sure you never lose 'em! Or maybe a dog collar and leash?



        This is a climbing and mountaineering harness, and should be used as such!

        My 8 year old has a 21" waist and 14" legs....

        My 8 year old has a 21" waist and 14" legs. Will this work? He stubbornly refuses a full body. Thanks
