Petzl helps get your kid on the rock with the Simba Harness.

Petzl designed the Kids' Simba Harness for young climbers from 5 to 10 years old, so they can get after it on the rock even if they don't fit in a sit harness. The four DoubleBack buckles allow for a wide range of adjustment for your fast-growing kid. Petzl included a double chest tie-in point to help this full-body harness keep your young one upright in the event of a fall.
  • DoubleBack buckles for a quick fit, and they're always doubled back
  • Highly adjustable design fits nearly any size kid
  • High tie-in point keeps your grom upright when hanging

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

When it comes to kids harnesses I can't say this is the best, but I can say this isn't the worst. We have used this plenty of times and the little man never seams to have a problem with it. I would suggest this for anyone who is looking for a kids harness between the ages of 2-6.

Petzl Harness Simba

It's Petzl, quality is always top notch. And the lil cartoons on the straps are a nice touch with the kids. But lets talk fit for the lil ones. We have twins who are 40 lbs and 4 years old and a 6 year old at about 60 lbs. Our use is mostly for our zip line. To make the zip line as independent for them as possible we have kept it low enough that they can reach the ground through half of its travel, at most their feet are about 2 feet off the ground. 30 ft long in total, so there's about 15 feet at least where all 3 can go crazy, pretend to fly, spin around in circles, bounce up and down. One kid even tried to bend over backwards by tossing his feet on the line once it stopped. In all cases they were never able to squirm or wiggle it into a position where it was not fitting properly or chaffing. Our kids are some what skinny too. Always, back to the safe 'seated' position of a harness.

Decent Harness

My kids have used this and the Ouistiti and prefer the Ouistiti. I would say that the Ouistiti would fit them well until they're about 7 or 8 then we'll have to move up to this one. The simba is really a fine harness, the buckles are just in a bad place right on a smaller kid's clavicle so it can cause pain if they're hanging in it for a while, like kids like to do.

My five year old, Johnny, pulling plastic 60 feet up in Waegwan South Korea. On his second ascent in 10 minutes, he called "falling", caught the wall while being belayed down just so that he could see if he could climb faster than a full grown man. He would not be able to do it if he hadn't learned to trust his gear. He's been using this harness for about six months.

FANTASTIC!

Got this for my 5 year old because he was too skinny for the BD we purchased him. It fits great! Super easy to use, very secure, and seems comfortable (my son hasn't complained about it at all). Planning on trying it out on our 3 year old as well, will post how that turns out.

Awesome Harness!

I bought this for my 4 year old daughter. She has used it a few times in Moab and climbing in the Wasatch mountains. This has been a great harness to give me and her peace of mind. It is really easy to adjust with the doubleback buckles. Because she loves it and is beginning to love climbing, I love this harness. Buy it!

PERFECT FOR MY GIRLS

I have 5 kids (yah, I know) and needed something for my younger girls to feel safe in. So far they have been perfect for my 8 and 6 year olds at the gym. Easily adjustable and the kids like the design. Well made and should last forever.

We need a harness for our zip line for our 4 year olds that are 42 inches tall and weigh 53 lbs. I like the full boy harness, but am not sure which harness is best for them. Would you recommend the Simba or the O.? Thanks.

I have a 150" zipline in the backyard. My 6-8 year old girls use one

I have had a big 3 year old comfortably fit into the Ouistiti. The girls flip upside down wearing either one and are very safe. Look also at the http://www.backcountry.com/store/MET0057/Metolius-PAS-Personal-Anchor-System-w-Element-Locking-Carabiner.html
as a easy means to adjust the distance from the ground or cable.

Ouitsi is better for the four year old. About age 5 or 6 the outgrow it and need the Simba.

Responded on

The simba would proably work best for a kid that size, especially considering they're going to keep growing. If you have smaller kids coming up you might consider the Petzl Ouistiti instead.

What are the weight limits for this harness?

Best Answer Responded on

Well its designed for kids 5 through 10 years old so taking a guess, I would say 30 through 70 pounds. I don't use this harness, but thats is the weight limit for many other harnesses designed for children in this age group.--------------------Construction-wise, this harness will hold way more weight than any kid, however fat, that you could stuff into it. I can guarantee you that no part of this harness will break with 300 pounds in it, probably a lot more. Climbing gear is built a lot stronger than it'll ever need to be on purpose.

Responded on

The age range given is actually a better guideline. Way more than 95% confidence, because the variation in the pediatric population isn't large...

Aiden loves this climbing harness -- inside or out. It fits him at 3yrs old and it looks like it'll fit him until he's 6 or so.

recommend the Petzel Simba

I was looking for a full body harness for a 1st-3rd grade camp I do, so children can climb and ride a zip line. This harness was perfect, the fit was good. It was easy to use and seemed comfortable to the children.

Best Answer Responded on

Take a look at the petzl simba body harness. I have it for my small 6 yr old and it is really adjustable. Check out the sizing anyway, you never know!

Responded on

This harness should work for three year olds, unless they are especially small and light.
