- Q & A
Selena 2 serves me well
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I am relatively newish to climbing and I don't get after any huge multi-pitch trad climbs, but this harness has served me well thus far! I've used it on sport routes, on ice, for glacier travel, and to dress up as "Saucer Boy" on gaper day and ski around the entire day. Despite the lack of adjustable leg loops, it has worked easily over Goretex ski bibs, softshell ice climbing pants, and anything you'd want to rock climb in. It is easy to get on, comfortable to wear, and easy to escape from in the off chance you have to use the restroom. I was worried initially because I'm an athletically built woman with actual quads (5'10" and 145lbs), but the leg loops are just right and don't pinch or squeeze. Since I don't do a lot of big trad climbs, I don't have much issue with the size of the gear loops.... I've always had plenty of space for anything I've wanted. Plus... the color is awesome and Caroline Gleich wears this harness..... don't you want to be cool, too? ;)

Comfy and Cute

This harness is great. The only thing I don't like is that the thigh straps are not adjustable. Other than that, its got nice padding for comfort and makes me feel secure during my climb.

Very Comfortable Harness
Although this harness is designed for women, I can personally say this is one comfortable harness . And that is because, well, I own this harness. This harness is my go-to harness for any trip to the crag or even a trip to the gym. This harness has plenty of gear loops which makes it great for any sort of climbing. Whether that be sport climbing or single pitch trad routes. I would recommend this harness to anyone (male or female) who is in the market for a new harness.
Love This Thing!

This harness is super comfortable to hang in. Leg loops are fixed to the perfect setting with some stretch to give. And the color is rad. Definitely recommend it!

I've only used this harness for sport climbing, but that's primarily what it's designed for anyways. I really like how the leg loops have webbing instead of straps to really ratchet them down. The webbing provides enough support and strength, but is not uncomfortable. Never comes loose or has made me feel like I'm in danger while wearing it. I've got the previous version of this harness, that's why it looks a little different in the picture.
I am brand new to the sport and want a harness that is well made and will take me not only to the gym but outdoors. What do you suggest?
This is a great harness for the gym or outside, anything you need to rope up in really. I would recommend spending an extra $10.00 on
just to have adjustable leg loops to accommodate clothing and what not.

What do people think about the gear loops for trad climbing - specifically on a Medium size harness? I tried on the Small and Large, and the Small harness had tiny front gear loops, but I need the Medium, which they didn't have in stock. I wonder if the tool holders are wasted space?
Here's a really great review, Jen.
Check it out.
That was a great review, but it was for the small. I went ahead and bought the medium, and finally tried it out with my trad rack this month. I was able to fit all of my cams on the gear loops just like with my old harness. That's at least 8 'biners on each loop. My only complaint is that it clashes when I wear orange :)

I am fifteen and about 5''2 and 90-100 pounds. What size should I buy
The best number for sizing a harness is going to be a waist measurement, which you can compare to the sizing chart listed with this product page for an accurate fit. That being said, based purely on height and weight I would assume an XS should be a good fit for you.
Agreed. Remember to measure your true waist, not where you wear your pants. The harness should sit entirely above your hip bones.
