I just bought a Petzl Sama, but when I got home I realized that the haul loop looks a little skimpy. I might be returning it for something with a full strength one, any suggestions?

Why do you think you need a full strength haul loop?

Going to do some Aussie rapping?

Metolius and Yates makes some pretty beefy haul loops on some of their harnesses. What do you consider full strength?

I've had a couple Sama's for sport climbing and yes, the "haul loop" sucks balls.


BD, metolius, arc'teryx make nice harness with decent haul loops.
