Size chart and technical data of Singing Rock Harness.
Fully adjustable four buckles sit harness ideal for mountaineering and winter climbing.
4 Rock&Lock buckles - newly made of stainless steel to increase corrosion resistance.
2 buckles in a waist belt enable to center the harness, keeping the gear loops in an optimal position.
thanks to the Rock&Lock buckles on leg loops it is possible to put the harness on without having to take your skis or crampons off.
new webbing is more durable and works better in our R&L buckle, making the tightening smoother.
ergonomic construction combines maximum comfort and low weight.
padded waist belt and leg loops made from breathable PES fabric with high abrasion resistance.
perforated EVA foam inside the waist belt and leg loops with holes 5mm in diameter increases the breathability of the harness.
fixed bridge between the leg loops provides a greater safety in case of incorrect tie-in.
rear haul loop with a load capacity 30 kg.
color 16 mm belay loop for proper tie-in/attachment point, strength 15 kN.
BMI adjusting system ensures perfect fit when changing the layers or weight.
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.

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||Quick Adjust|
|Leg Buckle Type||Quick Adjust|
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.

How to use Singing Rock harness, storage and maintenance with instructional pictures.
A pictoral representation of UIAA-105 and EN-12277 standards for harnesses.
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.
