Ski MountaineerAmong the best ever

Voted 5/5

I love this harness. Nice, simple, no-frills, easy one-pull tighting system. A bit uncomfortable during long hanging belays, but hey, this is the trade-off for the weight. I use if for everything, even alpine/ice climbing. I do not need releasable leg loops, these are unnessary with pre-planning.
One of the few pieces I am 100% satisfied with.
