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 2014, even the colors and styling details are the same. The Sliding Belt System on the waist and legs allows the fit to be perfectly fine-tuned for exceptional safety and comfort. Newly designed auto-locking buckles on the waist and legs are easy to operate and deliver maximum friction to lock the webbing in place once the right fit is negotiated. The Jasper JR even has the same patented systems as its parent harness with the No Twist belay loop (a special loop inside the main loop holds the belay carabiner to prevent it from shifting) and an update to our Flat Link elastic that connects the waist belt and leg loops in the rear. A special pull tab where the elastic connects to the waist delivers faster, more precise adjustment and an even lower profile. Two molded gear loops keep draws at the ready and a new chalk bag loop round out the features on this big rig built for little bodies.
Note: Sit harnesses for children may be used alone only when toproping. Because kids 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 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.”
|2 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||Quick Adjust|
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.

The main kid-friendly feature of the Jasper Junior is the sliding waist belt. If you’ve ever worn a harness that was almost too big and adjusted it down to the last inch you’ll realize the design of the Jasper Junior is genius. Go ahead and cinch the harness down all the way and the outer padding on the waist slides along on the belt keeping the leg loops and gear loops oriented correctly instead of being all off-kilter like they get with other harnesses that are cinched down. Our kid testers mentioned that this helped to make it more comfortable for them to wear. The waist belt was designed with wide dense foam to make the harness as comfortable as a quality adult harness.
