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.”
|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.
|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.
Performance: “Hands down the best harness I’ve worn out of the 15 or so I’ve donned in the past three years of gear testing,” one female tester said of the women’s-specific Togira Light. “It sits on my body perfectly and stays in place; I’m not constantly adjusting it or pulling it up—a first for me.” Another selling point is the plastic-molded gear loops, which are angled instead of round, so it’s easy to carry an entire rack of doubles through a No. 2 cam and still be able to quickly find each piece. “This harness eliminated my need to carry a shoulder gear sling; raving about gear loops might seem mental, but these were the first I’ve found that were thoughtfully designed and truly useful,” another tester said. A 1,000-foot route in Red Rock (read: seven hanging belays) didn’t give one climber any pain or discomfort, and hot gym days didn’t leave any sweat spots thanks to the breathable and slim two-layer foam construction. We fell in love with this harness for long trad routes, but sport climbers will like its slim profile and svelte fit, too. New Slide Bloc buckles were easy to use: "It zipped right up!" praised one tester. Leg loops are detachable at the lower back so you can relieve yourself en route.
Cons: Fixed leg loops don’t allow you to adjust, so pay attention to sizing. They also restrict layered-up, cold-weather climbing. Dropseat hook attachment is difficult to take off/ put on while you’re wearing it.
Conclusion: “I’ve forsaken every other harness for this one.” Gear-pluggers and bolt-clippers alike will dig the comfort and fit of this harness. Best women’s harness we’ve seen in the past few years.
"Hands down, the Togira is the best harness I’ve tested out of the 15 or so I’ve donned in the last three years,” said one Climbing editor and frequent tester. “It’s also the first women’s specific harness that actually won unanimous praise from lady testers, because the waist belt and leg loops stayed high in just the right places.” Testers also liked the molded gear loops, which made it easy to organize and eyeball gear even in extremis. “I was able to carry a full rack plus some doubles in cams, 10 to 12 draws, belay device, anchor tether, and a few lockers, with room to spare,” said one tester after a sevenpitch route. The Togira (and the similar Togir, the men’s model) is designed to be lightweight (12 oz.) and packable enough for alpine ascents, with two attachment points for ice screw holders and easily detachable leg-loop risers. The leg loops are elasticized but non-adjustable, and the harness is built fairly slim, so size up if you plan to wear many layers.
