Wonderful Harness! 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: secander, 2011-05-19

Simple, easy to put on, comfortable, and light. I use this harness for everything: alpine multi-pitch, sport climbing, gym climbing, belaying newbies who want to spend 30 minutes trying something that's too hard for them. It works great for it all! The only drawback is the price, but if you can get it for a discount, it's totally worth it!

This harness is great because it's simple, slim, light, tough and comfortable.

Light is Right 4 out of 5 stars

Very lightweight and moves well with your body.
Comfortable to wear while hiking and descending from long routes.
Breathes well and is soft enough to wear shirtless.
Gear loops are reversible and large enough for a double rack of cams plus quickdraws.
Packs up really small so it does not take up a lot of space in a backpack.


Gear loops are somewhat floppy and the plastic can become detached.
Gear loops are proportional to the size of harness. The smaller sized harnesses have less room for gear.
Adjustable leg loops are only available on the A300a and the X350a, the alpine WST harnesses.
Expensive: the R320 or R280 (women’s trad) are the middle of the range at $135. The S240 sport climbing harness is the cheapest at $99 and the alpine X350a clocks in at an astounding $159.

Quality issues and sweat 3 out of 5 stars

Review by: martinheynert, 2009-08-06

The idea is great, but...

1. The elastics lost their power very soon and partly ripped off. This is especially annoying at the leg loops, their fit became too loose.

2. The tie in loops show significant tear and wear after one year of occasional (1x every 2 weeks) use.

3. The warp webbing does not "breathe". Your sweat will be caught under it. When you get rid of the harness, you will feel wet in your back.

glad someone came up with this! 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: Clipmedia, 2009-05-25

a lot of people tell me that they would never be caught in a harness is paper thin but it's solid and it won't break, and the obviously great thing about it, it is so light and not bulky and take sup no room in your pack! i will never climb in another harness and thats quite a statement to male on my part. i can't recomment this harness enough and it's just the sh*t! i would give it a 7 and more if i could!
