Voted 4/5

A great harness for multi-pitch trad climbs and alpine climbs. With no foam on the leg loops, this is very compact and collapses nicely for transport. The adjustable leg loops fit well over shorts or GoreTex shell pants. Works okay with BD Ice Clippers for racking screws. Does not work all that ideally with BD ice tool holster as the gear loops are staggered and tend to get in the way of the tool when it's in the holster. For BD tools, it's probably better just to rack the tool on a carabiner.

No complaints after 3+ years and no reason to get anything else at the moment. Very comfortable and durable. Simple and elegant.
