• Four injection moulded reversible/removable gear loops

best yet!
Lightest, most comfortable, best featured harness I've owned. The adjustable leg loops were a must for me, the the 350a was hard to track down locally - but well worth it. Its made for winter mountaineering & Ice, so be sure to buy big enough for bulk layers...

Very Nice
I love it. I bought it for ice, but now use it most of the time. This thing is tough as nails and light as a feather.

great, light weight harness. my only complaint is that it isn't woman-specific, so it really rides up on my when I'm rappelling. otherwise, I'm happy with it. the ice clipper slots are well placed and make sense (unlike BD Blizzard).
