Edelrid Loopo Lite Harness

Loopo Lite



My vote: None ( 4.8 avg )


Ultra-light harness for high alpine use and ski touring that fits in your pocket. This is one of the lightest harnesses available. It’s made of ultra-light, high strength load-bearing Dyneema© edge binding. Detachable elastic straps on the leg loops allow the harness to be put on without having to remove skis or crampons. Reflective tie-in loops – easier to recognize in the dark.

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.”

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.

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.

Climbing Gear Reviews UK rating 4/5

Overall the Lopo Lite proved to be more comfortable and capable than I was expecting. It’s not the harness I’d choose fro a technical mixed route but for ‘dangerous walks’ such as a trip up Mt Blanc via the Three Monts or Gouter route it’s perfect. Durability wise I wouldn’t expect it to fare well compared to something like Edelrid’s own Gambit but for routes such as those mentioned where you’re not abrading it thrutching against rock it should do well enough.

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.
