Easy-to-adjust leg loops mean this harness is great for ice climbing and mountaineering in addition to cragging and route climbing. Low bulk and flexible rear equipment loops prevent the waistbelt from interfering while wearing a pack.
Frame Construction with breathable monofilament mesh evenly distributes pressure, providing maximum support and comfort
Adjustable leg loops allow size to be adjusted depending on comfort desired or layers of clothing worn and permit the harness to be put on when wearing skis or crampons
Woven polyester mesh on the inside of the harness wicks moisture for improved comfort and speeds drying in wet conditions
Perforated closed cell foam on the waistbelt and leg loops increases breathability
DoubleBack buckles are pre-threaded and adjust quickly with a single pull, helping to ensure proper closure
Green belay loop helps users identify proper tie-in / attachment point
Reinforced tie-in points for increased durability in this high-wear area
Rigid, inclined front equipment loops for easy access to gear; flexible rear loops stay out of the way while wearing a pack
Trail line loop
Two CARITOOL slots
Detachable elastic leg loop straps

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|

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.
