    When you pull on this harness, it honestly feels like you aren't wearing one. Liiiiiight as air. The gear loops are fabulous for loooong sport routes that require 12+ draws.

    Though it's definitely a bit fickle, I couldn't get down with the color choices of the women's harnesses, so I snagged a size S in the men's (I have a 28in waist and 35in hips at 5'9" and 135lbs). It's not quite as nice of a fit if you've got hips, but it has all the same great features.

    It doesn't get better than this

    Arc'teryx is known for it's technical apparel and weight saving precautions. This harness is no exception. It is very lightweight, which makes for an easier accent. The adjustable leg loops are great, and make you feel secure in the harness. The gear loops are a great size...large, which is much needed on extensive traditional routes where much gear is needed. The comfort level of the harness is great too, they did not pad this harness, instead they used a slightly stretchy material to make this comfortable to hang in at belay, it forms around your body and feels great. I trust Arc'teryx on the ski hill as well as the wall and would recommend this harness to any climber, it is by far my favorite harness that I've ever owned.

      So yeah I've used this now a few times , climbing at the gym and in rock. And so far it's freaking fantastic. At first I thought I was crazy, my first time being lowered it was actually super painful. But you just have to make sure both legs loops are generally the same tightness. You fit it right and it will feel like you aren't wearing anything at all.

      Holy Guacamole

        Okay let's just get over the fact this harness is pricey. Just like the warning printed on all out gear "climbing is inherently dangerous..." Well Arcterex is inherently expensive. That said, they are all top of the line.

        Lightweight, adjustable, high-quality

        Overall, a great harness. It's light, solid, and durable. My last Arc harness lasted years before needing to be replaced. This one has a slightly wider swami and adjustable leg loops. I've always been a fan of the brand's rigid loops, which you can orient to either have draws fall towards your front or back.

        If you have bigger legs, you may be somewhat taxing on the extent of the adjustability - I wear a medium harness for my waist (32" waist), but had to max out the leg loops. So I returned the medium, and got the large, but I'm pretty close to having to pull through all of the slack in the waist loop.

        Lightweight, adjustable, high-quality

        Forget I'm wearing it

        I bit the bullet and upgraded from my BD harness to this Arcteryx one about 4 months ago. I love how light and comfortable it is. I forget I'm wearing it. I've tried to go back to my BD harness and it feels like I'm wearing a diaper. Ok, maybe a bit of an exaggeration but not much... the Arcteryx harness is that good. It also packs up a lot smaller which is convenient as every little bit of space helps when I've got a full trad rack and 70m rope in my bag. I'd give it 5 stars if the color options were better. Arcteryx could take a lesson from BD on this.

        Solid, lightweight workhorse

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This is my first Arc'teryx harness and overall I'm impressed. Incredibly light, good easy access gear loops, and adjustable leg loops. I primarily climb multi-pitch trad routes. Harness is not as comfortable as my previous BD harnesses when on a hanging belay but it's not bad considering the very limited padding.

        Good Harness

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This was my birthday gift to me back in March. I have used it mostly for trad climbing. It has massive gear loops the rear haul loop is quite handy. It is by far the most comfortable harness to fall or just hang in. It fits into a tiny stuff sack and it weighs almost nothing( sometimes I find myself checking to see if I am wearing a harness mid-pitch it feels so light). My only complaint is that sometimes when it is really loaded with gear the waist belt drops a little. Most of the time it has performed amazing.

        Light weight and comfortable

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This harness is so light and thin you don't even notice you are wearing it. Packs down small in backpack. Surprisingly really comfortable. I've used this on a couple multi-pitch routes. Some pitches hanging at a belay station for 45min and never felt any pinch or discomfort from the harness.

        Sizing: I'm a 31 waist and have the medium. It fits pretty good, but I have to crank the waist all the way down to get a snug fit. If my waist got any smaller I would have to size down to the small.

        You get what you pay for

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I purchased this harness from rei (unfortunately back country doesn't have a way to hang in it) and have nothing bad about it to say. I'm 5'10 180 and the large fits me very comfortably. After a few minutes wearing it you forget its there no matter what your doing. You can hang in this for freaking ever. Its amazing. I wanted something that could do everything and after testing a few this was the best choice. It packs down very small and doesn't add alot of weight. It is the best combination of lightweight and packable without being uncomfortable. Its expensive but I would have paid more for this harness if I had to.

        By far the best do everything harness available.

        Can anybody with one of these provide an actual weight measurement?

        All of my other Arcteryx harnesses are 40-50g heavier then advertised.
