My favorite harness!

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer
Fit:
True to size

This is my favorite harness that I've ever owned. The reason why is because it's so light and compact, I never question whether or not I want to have a harness with me. I just toss it in the pack, and it disappears. When I need it, I've got it. I love how it can disappear under the hipbelt of a pack. Something that frequently irritates me with other harnesses while climbing and skiing. The packbelt, and harness are fighting for the same space and the pack ends up losing and riding up on my torso. When I'm not wearing a pack with a big belt, this harness has nice, but minimal gear loops that can hold my crevasse rescue, rappel, and other climbing gear (as long as I keep it to a minimum or rack in trees off of my carabiners.) For anyone who is considering purchasing this harness but is concerned that it may be too specialized, I would suggest that it's much more versatile than you might initially think. I've used the Choucas Light for alpine routes, rappels while skiing, ice climbing, summer scrambles that get a little too technical, self-evacuation from chairlifts while ski patrolling, and even glacier travel (which was probably its original intent). *I am an ambassador on the Blue Ice athlete team and received this product to test and use.

New favorite piece of gear

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

So light, easy to put on, and so packable. Wraps up in its own buttstrap to the size of a billiard ball. Only problem is when it's not clipped/tied in, it just hangs on with the plastic buckle and it feels a little loose on me. Perhaps go to a smaller size to make it feel snug.

So Light

Purchased one of these for a technical teams skimo race. Only the essentials at a weight/size no one would believe. Blue Ice is legit.
