• Rock Climbing
• Laminated construction comprised of laser cut webbing, nylon and padding
• 3-dimensional mesh padding wicks moisture away from the body
• Pre-Threaded Buckle on the waist
• Patented No-Twist belay loop
• 4 stiff webbing reinforced gear loops
• Chalk holder threads through chalk bag loops to keep it from dangling
The Laser is the harness of choice for high-end sport climbers who are looking for a comfortable harness that still offers all the performance attributes of a true red point harness. The waist and leg loops are constructed from laser cut webbing fixed to soft 3-dimensional mesh padding on the interior and rugged nylon on the exterior. The gear loops are stiffened to keep draws at the ready and the chalk bag attachment threads straight through the chalk bag loops so it does not dangle and twist on a carabiner.

In grams, the weight, as stated by the manufacturer/brand.
If there are differences in weight (due to multiple sizes or optional accessories) we'll list them here.
The default weight is the middle-most size, often this is size M.
| 382 g|
M : 382 g / 13.5 oz
CAMP doesn't provide the weights for other sizes so we're working on gathering this info by hand, stay tuned!

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.
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.”

|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.
|Belay / Tie-In||One Loop|
|Waist Buckle Type||Quick Adjust|
|Leg Buckle Type||None (it stretches)|
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.
