Recommended for children from 5 to 10 years old, not exceeding 85 lbs (40 kg).
Thermoformed EVA padding (6 mm on the waist, 4 mm on the legs).
Auto-locking steel buckles on the waist and legs.
Adjustable elastic straps connecting the waist and legs.
15 mm belay loop.
The Jasper JR is a full-featured harness that kids love to wear because it is just like what their parents are wearing. In fact, with the updates for 2016, even the colors and styling details are the same. Comfort is assured with thermoformed EVA padding (6 mm on the waist and 4 mm on the legs). Auto-locking steel buckles on the waist and legs are easy to operate and two molded gear loops give junior climbers a chance to rack gear. Note: Sit harnesses for children under 10 years of age are intended for top-roping. Because young children have a higher center of gravity and less-defined hips than adults, the Jasper JR should be used with the Bambino chest harness to prevent flipping upside down in the event of a lead fall or when rappelling.

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.

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.
