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.

Standard Harness

Pros
Great beginner harness
good for all around
Cons
Can become uncomfortable over time

This was the first harness I've ever owned. I first owned the Medium size, but after a few months of use it had stretched to the point where it no longer fit snug (though this is partially because I was barely a medium). After sizing correctly, the harness fit just great.

I've used it for sport, trad, and top roping at the gym, it is a very versatile harness. On multi-pitch climbs I've done in the past, it has become uncomfortable at hanging belays giving me "wall hips" that feel bruised for days. This could be due to my skinniness though. After about 2 years, it still works, just not the most comfy harness on multi-pitch days.

Best harness for my cheep ass

Pros
Quick on
I can hang on it for two hours or so before getting uncomfortable,
adjustable
a good mix of inexpensive and comfortable
Cons
Removable elastic that connects the leg loops to the waist loop falls off sometimes

I have climbed in this harness for about a year now and its doing great. Ive done some multi pitch on it where I was wearing it for around 6 hours and hanging on it for about 3 hours and it was comfortable for most of the time.

I've also belayed countless beginners with this harness and it has taken falls well. My only peeve is the elastic band from the back of the leg loops that connects to the harness is attached to a poorly designed hook that commonly falls off. This can easily be modified however.
