Description

Yeah, it's safe.

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. Redundancy is key in climbing, and the Patriot All Around has error-proofed every possible structural aspect in addition to force-rated components that can withstand loads comparable to a typical rope's impact force rating.
  • Non-directional tie-in points maintain strength even if rope is routed incorrectly
  • 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
  • 3600 lbf (16 kN) rear haul loop
  • 1500 lbf (6.6 kN) leg loop elastic

Falsely advertised by Backcountry.com

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Shame on Backcountry.com 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 Backcountry.com 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.

Not what I ordered.

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

The picture of this harness is very mis- leading to what you actually receive. I was looking for a sport climbing harness and the patriot is NOT it. Gear loops are strictly cloth, no plastic coating keeping them up right and yes, the patriot is light, but more on the side of flimsy. Probably an excellent hardness for some, but not for sport climbers.

Responded on

Hey jenp230492,
Sorry about the confusion, but this harness is not specifically made for sport climbing-
The best use of this harness would be for a beginner climber, or on a big wall after hours(or even days), to make extra sure that every possible aspect of the harness is error proof. The picture also shows the Spectra gear loops without the plastic on them.

I hope you can give this safe product more than 2 stars since it seems like the only problem was that it wasn't the ideal sport climbing harness.

This is an incredible harness that helps prevent injury from misusing the harness!

The amount of climbing gear available is certainly overwhelming, so please feel free to get in touch with us to help find the perfect items for you!
