Weight (g)


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.

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.”

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.

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.

Fraggle II Harness

No reviews yet.

Outdoor Gear Lab Gear Review rating 3/5

We love how easy it is to get on and adjusted quickly and how the front buckle holds everything together (including the shoulder straps) until the kids are ready to tie in. The two buckle tightening system is easy and saves having to fiddle much with the harness. The major drawback of this harness is the fact that the padding is stiff and is relatively uncomfortable for both hanging in and for approaching the wall or playing at the base. The Black Diamond Momentum Full Body has a similar easy to use design but offers more comfort for both hanging and wearing around between climbs.

Get two-in-one protection for kids up to 88 pounds with the Fraggle full-body harness. “I like knowing that there’s no chance of our little guy wiggling out of this no matter how he moves,” said one parent. The 3-D mesh padding proved comfortable and features multiple adjustment points that cinched down just small enough for a three-year-old and just big enough for a seven-year-old. There are two tie-in points—one in the center of the chest and one at the top of the back. The latter was handy for protecting steep descents, and Edelrid says it can be used for ski instruction.

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.
