Sharper, smoother and with cleaner lines the Elite women’s harness gets a stylish new look while keeping the true women’s fit that has made it so popular. And unlike many 'women's fit' models the Elite is truly made for the female form and not just a man's in a different colour.
So our new Elite Ziplock womens has been designed from scratch for the female form and has two intrinsic differences: A. A longer rise - the distance between the top of the thigh and where the waistbelt sits is often substantially different on women than men. Our harness reflects that. B. An increased leg loop to waist size ratio - to account for the different nature of womens contouring, suiting the subtle shaping of the female form better.
As well as these, we also looked at our batwing belt and tailored it more to the womens form, making it grip in all the right places for a more comfortable 'wrap' and a better hang. Stylish, co-ordinated and well featured, this harness crosses climbing seasons and styles for the dedicated woman climber who wants a truly close fit. And with a whole load of great performance features this is a harness that'll make your best days out even better.

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.”

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.

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.
