    Perfect design

    Familiarity:I've used it several times

    Light, durable, and takes up essentially no space. Easy to use.

    Small and reliable.

    Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    This harness weighs next to nothing, and packs small so I can fit it in overstuffed ski packs with ease. I can put the harness on if I have skis or crampons on, and it feels super secure on long rappels.

    Doesn't get any Lighter!

    Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I love this harness. It packs down super small, weighs nothing, and feels pretty good. I like that you can easily put it on without having to take your boots off. The waist and leg loops both come fully undone so you can very easily put it on anywhere. So if you're in the steep chute, and just got to your rappel and need to still put your harness on, you can do that pretty easily and comfortably for that situation. Or start your couloir with your harness on already, cuz duh, and you won't even notice it on!

    Super lightweight

    Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Petzl Altitude Harness is really nice and performed so well for me while canyoneering in Zion! It was so lightweight, and also fully waterproof which was awesome when going in and out of the water. Overall awesome harness and definitely a go to for a lightweight setup, especially because it packs down so small!

    Lite & Fast

    Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    This thing weights NOTHING and is perfect for quick ski mountaineering or glacier travel. Don't recommend sitting in it for extended periods of time since it's not the most comfy ... but that's not it's purpose. If you want the fastest harness to get into that is featherlite in your pack buy this. It's bomber.

    The Best

    Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    As far as a versatile alpine, ski mountaineering harnesses go - Petzl has once again shown their innovated stripes and created a harness in the lightweight category that is near perfect. Adjustable in many forms - can be put on with all your gear on - including crampons and skis so no fear of punching holes in it. Packs extremely small, to the size of a large fist, and weighs roughly nothing. Just enough loops to clip the necessary gear - and even features a slip to keep your screws from dangling around. I haven't had the opportunity to rap with it, but so far I am impressed and stoked on how light and packable.
