This harness can't be beat for alpine climbing. A little more sparse than the Bod, it still has plenty of amenities and space for gear.

This harness can be put on without stepping in when you have crampons on. You can adjust the fit for summer or for when you are wearing a lot of layers in the winter.

A great harness for all round mountaineering. Easy to put on in the dark, at altitude and when you are wearing lots of clothing. Mine's been to the Alps and Nepal loads of times. A bit "cutting" though as things become more vertical or for rappels.
