The safety of harness has been improved by the use of a wider connector, while its durability was adjusted through polyamide primary applied in the manufacture of seat belts. Harness is adjustable (waist and legs), designed for summer and winter climbing in the mountains and on the long rock routes. Harness is fully adjustable, making it fit to the clothes. Wide waist and pantlegs provide adequate comfort on long climbs. For better convenience, the harness is equipped with 4 lower gear loops. In order to achieve a greater range of adjustment, remove the tape from the rubber loops on both sides of the belt. In this way you can get a smaller waist size.
In grams, the weight, as stated by the manufacturer/brand.

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.”

|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||Manual Doubleback|
|Leg Buckle Type||Manual Doubleback|
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.
