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.

Metolius doesn't provide the weights for other sizes so we're working on gathering this info by hand, stay tuned!

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.

You deserve a nice belt

Pros
Comfortable on multipitch hanging belays
Cons
Folks at the local gym are copying my style now .. good for them!
Familiarity
I’ve used it a ton
Disclaimer
Able to purchase this on a pro deal as an industry professional.

Purchased this as an upgrade to the Metolius Safe Tech Trad harness that I've been wearing for years.  The Womens Deluxe provides more comfort without compromising on the features.  Nice to have one harness which can easily switch between sport climbing, SAR, route setting and multipitch.

Climbing Gear Review no rating given just a review

The best built harness for redundancy, durability, and robust features; take this on your next big wall adventure. Excellent for longer routes and climbers who want to buy one harness and be done.

Splitter Choss Gear Review no rating given just a review

All in all, I love this harness. I think the added margin of safety is worth the extra bulk and weight, plus it’s super comfortable. I wouldn’t hesitate in buying another and have already recommended it to friends. Go to your local gear shop and give it a hang.

The UIAA equipment standard provides a baseline for equipment performance in a test lab under controlled conditions on new equipment. Although these test conditions are relevant to the conditions encountered climbing, conditions encountered at the crags and the condition of the equipment are equally important. This recommendation from the UIAA member federation The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) provides vital equipment information that is NOT explicitly addressed in the standard, particularly failure modes of the equipment and recommendations for the use, inspection, maintenance, and retirement of equipment.
