The vertical world is your oyster.

Petzl designed its Men's Corax Harness with maximum versatility in mind so you can climb rock, ice, alpine, or via ferrata comfortably. Its Frame Construction Technology consists of high-strength polyester webbing for durability, soft mesh for ventilation and breathability, and closed-cell foam padding that eliminates any pressure points for comfort. DoubleBack buckles easily adjust and center the harness for an ideal fit, and the adjustable leg loops accommodate multiple layers for winter climbing as well as allow you to put the harness on even with mountaineering or ski boots on. You can unclip the back risers for drop-seat use on big walls. Petzl integrated two rigid gear loops at the front and left the loops at the back flexible so you can carry all the equipment without interfering with your backpack, and there are slots available for Petzl's Caritool (sold separately) for even more gear-storing possibilities.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been using the Petzl Corax the past few months and I really enjoy it. While trying on multiple harnesses (black diamond, mammut, etc) I noticed the Corax was more comfortable for me as I'm boney around my hips. I can recommend this to my friends

P.S I'm 6' 3" with a 31 in waist and size 1 has plenty of room

Runs Large

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I'm 5'10" 170 with a 33in waist. bought it off steep and cheap, so I didn't see the reviews here. size 2 was way too big.
Thanks to BC/SAC for the easy returns

Great Harness

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Bought this for my cousin who just started climbing as a hobby. He says the harness is snug, but comfortable and hasn't had any problems with it so far.

Gym to Crag

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

This is a terrific harness to start with. Padding, fit, and wearability are great indoors, and can go on some sport routes as well.

Fully featured, excellent first harness

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

This would work great as a first harness for the beginning sport/traditional climber. Adjustable leg loops, standard 4 gear loops, and slightly beefier padding than other models in this price range make this an easy pick in this particular category.

Great harness

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Don't climb too much but bought this one to start out with at the gym and a couple times outside. Very durable and comfortable. Love the double cinch as it gives you more room to tighten or loosen as necessary. And the double is also a little more secure I have heard by friends that climb a lot.

Great for starters

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is my first purchased harness. Ive used it for mostly gym climbing up to this point and its really all you need! plan on taking it outside when the weather provides but I guarantee I will love it! Im a 32 waist and the size 1 fits perfectly

Good beginner harness.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have this harness in a large and it fits very true to size. For a lite sport harness it is quite comfortable. I use this as my gym harness but it can also be used as a every day harness if you are going climbing outside. If you are using it as a multi-pitch harness and are sitting on anchors for long periods of time, I have found it gets painful to sit in. If you are just getting into climbing and want the best bang for you buck this is the way to go. The double cinch straps on the front does allow for a more snug sure fit as well. Very sturdy gear loops as well.

Good beginner harness.

Rock me gently...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

What a great workhorse of a harness. This thing is crazy comfortable and there isn't a situation that I've put it in where I've wished that I'd brought a different harness. I'm okay now in saying that this thing is bombproof.

Rock me gently...


  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this harness for indoor climbing, which I recently became addicted to. The harness is a great for the price. Comfortable hip belt and overall easy to adjust. I bought the size 1 and it fits perfect. I am 5'10'', ~160lbs, and wear 30-32 waisted jeans. I am a big fan of only having to pick from 1 of 2 sizes vs trying to pick a size from S, M, L, XL, etc. Highly recommend for the price range.

Very Wide and Comfortable Hip-Belt ! ! !

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This harness is really well engineered and it shows. The hip-belt fits me right where I need it to and is easily more comfortable than the Black Diamond Focus, or Momentum. The front gear loops are well designed and slide/position gear to the front for easy racking. Unfortunately the rear harness loops do not, they are standard half-moon design.

The rope loops have ample space and are probably my favorite feature. You could be tied into 3 ropes and have 2 slings attached and still have room to maneuver more through them, and they're burly and thick!

Noteworthy: The Belay loop is thinner than most harnesses I've seen/used and the metal buckles and the nylon waist/leg straps are also thin. I don't think this impedes quality, but could show wear quicker .

Great for the gym

    This harness is great for the gym. Ive taken it sport climbing once and I would much prefer a fitted harness. I use it for gyming and its pretty great for that. Only problem is that this runs super small. I am a 31-31 waist and the size 1 has to be tightened down all the way and still has some major space in it. It still highly functional for what it is though and it fairly comfortable

    Ol' Reliable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've been using this harness for close to 2 years now and it's still running strong. The dual adjustments on both sides lets you find the perfect fitting for your waist and means that even when you're carrying a bunch of trad gear, it'll never come loose. I've taken some fun whippers with this thing and the padding has saved me a back ache or two. Even after putting it through Tennessee, North Carolina and Kentucky it's still holding up nicely.

    Best Harness I've owned

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I am 5'10" and 185lbs and ordered size 1. I've previously owned a Marmot and a Black Diamond harness. I am mostly a sport climber but do trad and occasional top rope. For sport it is the bomb! The harness is always centered because of the dual adjustments on each side of the front center. This alone makes this an amazing harness. If you layer up, your loops are still where they need to be. This also pays dividends for trad climbing. It allows the gear to stay centered, avoiding clumsy reaches for your fixed/active gear. The quality is top notch and it is pretty comfy if hanging.

    I did find two drawbacks: 1. the rear gear loops are soft and flimsy, which make it difficult for sport when you want to clip a draw back onto your loop. 2. I have meaty legs and size 1 fits the waist nicely but a bit tight on the thighs (it does stretch a little after several wears).

    My favorite harness so far.
