The leg loops RE NOT THE PART THAT CATCHES YOU IN A FALL. tHE SIMPLY HOLD

ooop....cap lock....

The leg loops aid in making a more comfortable hang once you have come off, and reduce the strain on your ability to breath if you have to hang for more than a few seconds.

It is the waist part that you want to not F with.

Also, in the Primrose leg loops, there is a 1" flat webbing sewn INSIDE the outer padding part. The webbing inside is the part taking any stress. The outer padded part is for comfort.

I have a primrose, and.....people say it needs replacing. But it's just shredded to hell on the leg loops because I am a big chicken and scoot down descents in JTree.

I won't suggest taking some acid to the poor harness of course, but I don't think using a cleaning compound on the leg loop has any more chance of killing you than if a cat peed on it(OH NOOOOOOO!!!!!!)

Still, I would be pretty self-conscious about it if my leg loop had a blood stain. I have a cute butt and well....don't want to ruin the view for my poor belayers. hahahah

Instead of chemicals, use vinegar and baking soda. Here's the deal, from http://frugalliving.about.com/...Stain_Remover.01.htm:
Saturate the stain in vinegar. Then, rub with a paste made of vinegar and baking soda. If the stain persists, add a couple tablespoons each of vinegar and laundry detergent to a bucket of water, and soak over night. Rinse, and wash.


If the stain persists, you could try what the n00b guys do with their first hardware purchases - Rub it in the dirt, scrape in on some stone, scuff and dirty the thing up so people see *hardman* instead of n00b.

Or, you could wrap a little duct tape around it. But that would probably cause a lot more of a problem, since everyone and their mother will stop you and tell you how you're going to die.....

Or....patch it with a girl scout badge(or any fabric patch)! I don't know which GS badge would be...appropriate, but I had a sewing badge to patch a hole I tore on the butt (scooting down a descent in the Gunks and impaling myself on a tree branch - ow!).

edited because somehow an internet link got pasted in my text.
