How to Buy a Climbing Harness

Guide

Sport

Sport climbing harnesses are designed to be as low profile and lightweight as possible. They will typically have minimal padding, fixed leg loops, and a couple of gear loops.

Bigwall/Trad

Bigwall and trad climbing harnesses provide more comfort and versatility for longer routes that involve lots of gear and time spent on the wall. They will typically have extra padding, adjustable leg loops, at least four gear loops, and a rear haul loop.

Mountaineering/Ice

Ice climbing harnesses are similar to trad climbing harnesses, but they include features geared towards cold weather and ice climbing equipment. These include leg loops that adjust to fit winter clothing, at least four gear loops, a rear haul loop, and clipper slots for attaching ice screws and tools.
