Product Description

Per the Wild Country Website:

An all round harness needs to function in all conditions and adjustment is the key to that. The addition of our superb new Ziplock leg loop buckles, has added the versatility needed for winter, alpine or just rubbish summer weather. Clean, light and unobtrusive they perfectly complement the redesigned leg loops to give this harness all-round appeal for those who need to go that bit further.

Wide adjustment available on the cleverly designed waist belt with around 5-6"/12-15cm movement on each size, there is plenty of room for layer changes - or even a pound or two gained or lost!

• New Ziplock waist. • New Ziplock leg loops. • New 'Wear Indicator'. • 25kN Belay loop. • ‘Batwing Belt’ shaping. • Four gear loops. • Single point drop seat.

Personal Experience

Got one the beginning of this season and have made it my Backcountry Harness. Am very impressed with it's lightness and ease to put on. The gear loops are nicely positioned and can handle a pretty good load without pulling down on the swami. OVerall, I am very happy with it and most highly recommend it for anyone looking for a light adjustable harness. Two Thumbs up!

great deal!
for the price, i don't know of a better harness. fully adjustable and decently light. as stated above, the gear loops take a lot of gear and don't pull down awkwardly. the harness disappears when you put it on as it's very comfortable. hanging in it is comfortable when compared to other harnesses that aren't made for big walls. unless i become rich, i'll replace mine with another when it falls apart!

I bought one!
Chief, thanks for the review. The technical aspects of the information was helpful, but I made my decision largely based on your recommendation. I will add that I like the way gear loops lay flat and don't interfere with the waist belt of my pack.
