Optimized for trad cragging and long days in the vertical, the Chaos harness balances comfort and features without weighing you down. We designed the Chaos’ lightweight, low-profile bullhorn-shaped waist with Kinetic Core Construction, which uses multiple strands of Vectran spread across the harness and sandwiched spread between taffeta and lightweight foam, and added a breathable padded lumbar insert to provide top-notch comfort on hanging belays and multi-pitch routes.

-Pre-threaded Speed Adjust waistbelt buckle
-Bullhorn-shaped waistbelt built using Kinetic Core Construction
-4 pressure-molded gear loops
-12 kN-rated haul loop
-Breathable, padded lumbar insert
