Metolius' renowned Safe Tech Harnesses continue a tradition of exceptional dedication to safety with the Safe Tech Patriot All Around Harness. Addressing the issue of injuries due to harness misuse, the Safe Tech line boosts your safety margin when you're tired or trying to beat the dark.

  • Waist belt webbing shows color change when correctly double-passed
  • Waist buckle shows 'danger' if not correctly double-passed, but still holds 10 kN load when single-passed
  • Patented 3D system adjusts rise length and leg size to help keep you upright even during a fall
  • Structural force ratings:
  • 5000 lbf (22 kN) per belay loop
  • 2250 lbf (10 kN) Spectra gear loops
  • 3600 lbf (16 kN) Spectra rope locator

Shame on for not knowing their products. I echo what the other reviewed said, "this is not what I ordered". I'm giving it 2 stars because you will not receive what is promising if you order this harness.

The harness is overall what I was looking for: a pared down version of the Metolius Safe Tech harness, less bulky for trad or long multi-pitch climbs. However, IT LACKS SEVERAL OF THE SAFETY FEATURES ADVERTISED HERE, for example:

Waist belt webbing shows color DOES NOT change when correctly double-passed. The webbing is the same color regardless, I tried to capture this in my photo.

Also, the waist buckle DOES NOT shows 'danger' if not correctly double-passed.

I'm going to read through the harness manual before deciding whether or not to return it. It isn't what was advertised so I'm not sure if it really is what I wanted.
