Review 2 out of 5 stars

Review by: johnnie, 2005-04-04

Have this harness for about 2 years.
It's comfortable for hanging/belaying for long periods.
Disadvantage is that the padding slips out unther the webbing (in front) This makes the webbing sand your belly when climbing whitout t-shirt

The biggest disadvantage is the quick wear of the tie-in point. The protection overthere is all the way gone! I thing this is much to soon.
My previous petzl jump lasted 11 years before the tie-in point had become unreliable
Any-one with the same experiences?

If the description said that it was a sport climbing harness I would have to give it a 4.5. For sport, it is superb. The buckle system is ingenious. If you plan to rack on these loops though for a trad climb, good luck. The gear loops are SMALL. Anything more than 6 biners and they begin to bunch and stack on each other. Things even get a little crowded when on sport routes with 15 bolts when you have to carry extra locking biners for the belays and whatnot (descent shoes). If they added a 5th and normal shaped gear loop on the back it would be the ultimate sport harness. Not a good all-around harness though for multipitch. Trad climbers look for something else.

This was my first harness, and I've had it for two years now. The only thing that I could possibly complain about is the lack of a good place to hang my chalk bag. Other than that, it is very light, and I love not having to double back with the belt.

Fantastic harness. First one that I own, and couldn't wish for a better one!
