I watched one of my climbing partners don this 80's-green piece of dental floss for the better part of the spring before this 270 gram ball-hugger's siren call finally pierced my wallet. Any excuse to shed a half pound on the hike up to Yamnuska will do. After a season of trad climbing, a few days of ice and a long alpine route or two I believe that this is truly an excellent harness. Whippers are also handled with ease, as the skeleton seems to disperse a great deal of force. The gear loops are in exactly the correct location and twin ice screw clippers sit just behind the hip bone. I'm having trouble coming up with something negative to write, actually, which is somewhat bizarre for me.
