Petzl Corax Harness
I love the Petzl Corax Harness. Petzl makes comfortable harnesses and the Corax is perhaps the best. The adjustable leg & waist loops is nice when you need to adjust for minimal cloths needed for desert sport climbing to parkas & suits needed winter alpine climbing. Despite owning several harnesses I find that I always wear this harness each time.
Nice harness i have used in in mud and sonw it cleans up well.
Does this harness have ice clipper...
Does this harness have ice clipper slots?
Yes. It has two slots that will hold BD Ice Clippers, or Petzl Caritool.
Used it for a few seasons.Still holding and you don't have to worry about double backing it's automatic once you are tied in.
The Corax is excellent, pretty comfortable even after falls and no pinching. Bought the size 2 just incase I wear it over thicker pants and jackets in the winter months. Fits great and can crank down tight (5"10 - 175lb) even with minimal gear in the summer months. The gear loops are small and tight to the harness but they are durable and can hold quite a bit of gear. Bottom Line: Comfortable, Durable and Safe. Adjustment straps are great too,
Love Petzl quality.
I mostly work on Challenge Courses rather than large amounts of rock climbing and I cannot rate this harness highly enough. I generally am in this harness for 6 hours a day when I'm working and not once have I though to myself 'I wish this harness would do...' . I'm on my second Corax II as my first started to show signs of wear after 2 and a half years of very heavy use (5 days a week at 6 hours a day) and I had no hesitation in getting another one. I did think about the Calidris but I felt it was just a little to much overkill for my specific needs, not to mention a good deal bulkier. I loved it so much that when I needed to get an industrial harness I stuck with Petzl and went for the Navaho Bod Fast. Did I mention I love Petzl stuff?!
Petzl Corax Climbing Harness Review
Worth ever penney
Ive owned my Corax for about a year now and Im still as happy with it as the day I bought it. I love that it can fit almost anyone, this is important for me becasue I take alot of friends climbing and I am not always the only one using the harness. Just another example of Petzl doing what it does best!
I just received this harness today and it...
I just received this harness today and it seems a little odd. Compared with the leg straps (or even with my old Petzl Corax harness), the ends of the webbing for the waist-harness are folded over and sewn in the wrong direction. Shouldn't they be pointed out so that they can catch on the elastic keeper and outside of the buckle? Can anyone help?
Alan, just checked my Corax, and they are sewn the same way. I think this is on purpose so that the webbing will lay flat once under the elastic. I never thought about it, but seems to be the way it's designed. It's never given me any trouble, and is a very comfortable, sturdy harness! Enjoy
My leg loops are like this as well. I only noticed when i was climbing a few weeks ago and one of my leg loops came undone! I'm wondering if this is why.
This harness is a great fit. Why? Cause its adjustable in every way. I love the two buckles on the waist. You can center up your belay point perfectly on your waist. The leg loops are pretty comfy too and I love that they are adjustable. I wish the gear loops were a big bigger though.
corax = cozy
I haven't had any complaints about this harness. It fits great and the doubleback buckles can snug up and hold well. Two of my friends bought this harness after my recommendation and both love it as well. If you're looking for a comfortable reliable rig that you can where all day....this is it.
Unique and Comfortable Fit
I have only had the chance to wear this harness in the gym so far, but it is comfortable and very adjustable. I like the design of the double-backing system that Petzl has come up with. It is simple and reliable. The waist straps are really long but can be tucked away while climbing, but I am pretty thin so....might work out well when I have thick layers on in the mountain. I like how the side gear loops lay flat that will help when making alpine ascents with a backpack on. The rear haul loop is small, but seems burly enough to drag a haul rope up the pitches. I would definately buy this harness again. Very happy with the purchase.
Great harness- fit is excellent for me, but I have heard of others who prefer Petzl's prior sizing system. If you wore a medium in the prior sizing system, you may be between sizes in this harness- try one on before you buy, if possible!
All around performance
I've had three of these harnesses over almost nine years, and I keep coming back. The fit is great, the waist and legs easy to adjust, it's comfortable yet lightweight, and Petzl fixed my only complaint about it - the Corax now has a haul loop.
I'm a woman at 5'7" and a size 6 and I wear this harness in the size 1.
