Description

The sleek, stylish Women's Volt is as versatile as it is light, with the DNA of a trad harness running through it's sport climbing veins. Think lightening bolt fast. Think climbing from bolt to bolt all the way to the top, putting it all together into a send. Designed to beat the burn and clip the shuts, the Volt's lightweight cambered shape and radically tapered leg loops bely the comfortable design and solid construction. Great for running laps in the gym during the week and red-pointing overhanging projects on weekends, the Volt is equipped with a quick-adjust waist buckle, four tubular webbing reinforced gear loops, closed cell polyethylene foam core, and 1000 denier nylon outer for abrasion resistance. Reinforced tie-in points, super strong dual layer nylon belay/rappel loop, and smooth ClimbSpec buckle webbing complete this light, sturdy climbing harness, which isn't afraid of ice or alpine either. Just remember, for best results, Misty Mountain's Volt climbing harness has to be recharged at regular intervals by cranking all the way to the shuts!

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.

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.
