Description

We built the Aura harness with a women’s-specific fit and ultralight yet comfortable design that’s tailor-made for the female sport climber. The Aura’s Kinetic Core Construction uses strands of Vectran spread along the entire harness structure to evenly distribute weight and eliminate the need for bulky foam padding. We added a Speed Adjust waistbelt buckle for quick on/off, and a breathable wicking liner for mid-summer cragging sessions.

-Pre-threaded Speed Adjust waistbelt buckle
-Female-specific waist and leg loops
-Bullhorn-shaped waist built with Kinetic Core Construction
-4 pressure-molded gear loops
-Soft, breathable 3D mesh lining and abrasion-resistant shell

Gear Loops

Number of Gear Loops

Gear loops are used to hold gear (quickdraws, cams, etc) onto your harness. 4 gear loops is most common.

0 - 1 Gear Loops

Most often on full body harnesses or guide/gym style harnesses.

2-3 Gear Loops

Mostly found on lighter harnesses made for [ski] mountaineering or high-end sport climbing where weight is a high priority.

4 - 5 Gear Loops

The standard/most common number for climbing harnesses. Perfect for sport and trad.

More Than 6 Gear Loops

Designed for long multi-pitch and big wall climbing, found on harnesses made to hold the maximum amount of gear.

Worth Considering

Occasionally, the number of gear loops will change on a harness model depending on the size. There could be 7 gear loops for the med/large but only 5 gear loops for the xsmall/small. In this case we list the highest number for the filters, and then write an explanation on the product page like, “Size S/XS can only fit 5 gear loops.”

4 Gear loops
Ice Clip Slots

Ice Clip Slot

Ice clipper slots are made to fit a carabiner that holds ice screws. These slots are generally only used by ice climbers but there is no disadvantage to having them on your harness.

Less than 40% of harnesses will have ice clipper slots. And those harnesses will usually have 2 or 4 slots, often located next to, or between, the gear loops.

Haul Loop

Haul Loop

Trad climbers often look for a haul loop as they're intended to haul a rope (second line) or pack (while you climb the chimney).

A haul loop can also hold shoes or other accessories. Although not the intended use, it is also commonly used to hold a chalk bag.
