• Rock Climbing
• Pre-Threaded Auto-Locking Buckles
• One size fits all
• Recommended for children 3 to 8 years old not exceeding 85 lbs.
Climbing is a fantastic activity for young kids! Start them early but keep them safe with the Bambino full-body harness. Six points of adjustment allow the harness to be fine-tuned for a wide range of body styles and sizes. A single tie-in point at the sternum keeps the child positioned upright while hanging. The pre-threaded auto-locking buckles are quick, safe and easy to adjust and elastic retainers keep fidgeting hands from loosening things when you aren’t looking. Color-coding on the leg loops, waist belt and tie-in point make fitting the Bambino a breeze and further reduce the potential for user error.

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.

XS : 381 g / 13.4 oz
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.”
|0 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||None (it stretches)|
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.

Compared to other full-body kids’ harnesses, the Bambino is one of the most adjustable on the market, meaning you will get greater longevity from it as your kid grows (and we all know they grow like weeds on the modern high-calorie diet). It also has just a single attachment point, which keeps tying in simple. The attachment point is nice and high, so that the child always remains upright (or immediately flips the right way up if they do happen to invert). All the adjustment buckles are pre-threaded (although they are loose enough that they can come apart, so always check them, this kind of checking you should already be familiar with as per Parenting 101) and auto-locking, so the harness is very easy to adjust, even when your child is wriggling like an angry piranha.
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.
