Not for technical climbing where hanging around is likely. But for mountaineering it is the best. Light, has leg clips to help w/ toilette (especially for ladies), but is plenty solid to save your life.
No loop, which makes it easier to put on but harder to tie in. My guide had a piece of hardware that she used as a loop.
Easy to put on and take off layers and easily adjustable to compensate for said layers. For what it is made for, it is great.

If you're looking to save some money, it's a great deal.
PRO: really lighweight, doesn't take up much space. Plenty of gear loops. The material seems really sturdy.
CON: Watch the crotch when taking a fall.

If someone gives this harness a bad rating based on their experience rock climbing, ignore them. This harness is designed for mountaineering, which it excels at. The drop seat is great for doing business, and the gear loops hold all the runners and biners you need. Padding would be useless and make this harness bulky. Great alpine harness, not for sport climbing.

For a back-up harness I really like it. Good for TR and glacier travel. The gear loops on the new model are a real plus. I get worried about the plastic clips; though they are not load bearing, I am still worried that if you fall into a rock they will crack.

Don't fall and you'll love this harness...Works great for people who forget their harness or those who are simply new to climbing and top roping. Friend took 35 footer into one of these..OWW
