This harness is ugly, but it is also comfortable and light. It makes a great gym harness. That's all I use it for. I got it for free. Otherwise I would never use it. The color is far too obnoxious.

I'm a beginner and I recently purchased this harness and its. Super light and feels great but does anybody if I will have problems with falling on lead climbs?
money well spent

At first sight the neon green dental floss hirundos looks like a harness used in the bedroom and not at the cliff. Even when you slip it on, you wonder if it will even hold a fall. Well it does, and it feels amazing at the same time. Being the sport weenie I am I've spent hours, yes hours in a hirundos dogging up a route and the only pain I noticed was that of my ego being smashed yet again. Petzl nailed it, the way the frame construction evenly distributes pressure while keeping you cool at the same time you'll have a hard time giving this harness up. I've had mine for over a year and it probably has over 1000 pitches on it and it still shows minor wear, I could easily get another 1000. Clip on a gri gri with a 3-d attache and a handful of petzl draws and you have the perfect fail safe setup.

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.
