Product Description (Manufacturer's Description)

Throwing standard design to the wind, Arc'teryx spent years at the drawing board to make the A300a Climbing Harness paper thin and lightweight without sacrificing comfort or alpine-ready features. Designed for fast-and-light routes on big mountains and technical ski-mountaineering trips, the A300a features adjustable leg loops that fit well even if you add or remove layers. Arc'teryx added two gear loops with injection-molded reinforcements that can be removed to create a lower profile that's more comfortable to wear with a backpack.

My Comments

I just wore this harness to the top of Cotopaxi and Chimborazo in Ecuador. Awesome piece of equipment. Super light, functional, comfortable, and has all the right parts with nothing extra to get in the way or add weight. If you do technical climbing at altitude and plan on carrying a big rack, this may not be the harness for you. This more of an alpine style harness.
