Product Description

An ultralight harness for alpine mountaineering and skiing. Great for glacier travel as well. Two gear loops and four ice clipper slots. Quick release leg loops allow for easy on and off while wearing crampons or skis. Weighing in at around eight ounces, it offers a strong and comfortable design that packs into a pocket sized stuff sack.

This is a very comfortable harness but also very lightweight. It is great when you have crampons on, and need to saddle up - because you can clip the harness around your body which allows you to avoid stepping through holes and possibly puncturing the webbing. Another perk is that it is very packable. It stuffs down into a very small bag and is easily stored in your pack. The only downside I have noticed, is that it only has two gear loops.

AlpinistMinimalist Harness

Voted 4/5

This is truly a minimalist harness designed primarily for glacier travel where you hope to never have to use it. There's no padding and only 2 gear loops. It's a great, lightweight harness for its intended use but make no mistake; if you fall into a crevasse, you won't be very comfortable hanging in it for long.
