Weight (g)


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.

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.

Heads up gear falling from above!

extra gear loop
wears out fast
Potential safety issue.
I’ve used it a ton

Loved the extra gear loop for carrying gear up multi pitches, but had an unfortunate incident.  After about a year of use, I had just finihsed the chimney pitch on Butt Lite on the Squamish Chief when one of my gear loops broke, and half my rack fell to the ledge below me.  I was able to retrieve

my gear, and when I inquired about warranty Petzl told me it wasn't covered becuase I was an abrasion issue...  So...  great sport climbing harness but if you plan on doing any offwidth or chimney climbing pick something a little more robust, by Petzl's own admission it isn't meant for climbing where it might see abrasion.

Great harness due to the maount of loops that it has. I do not ice cimb at all BUT one day it might happen adn this harness will be with me due to having adjustable leg loops.

Outdoor Gear Lab Gear Review rating 5/5

The Petzl Adjama is our Top Pick for Trad Climbing and Multi-pitch adventures because it combines comfort and gear carrying capacity, the two most critical components of any long-route harness. It is easily one of the most comfortable you can buy, and comes at a relatively affordable price. We preferred to use it only for these styles due to its bulk and weight, and chose something lower profile when heading out sport climbing or for the alpine.

UK Climbing Gear Review no rating given just a review

The Petzl ADJAMA is a very comfy, well-featured climbing harness. Covering all your needs in one model, it firmly sits in the jack-of-all-trades category. Petzl's years of experience in harness design really shine through and there are no minor design flaws or annoying niggles here. It would be the perfect harness for the UK based all round climber, capable of doing everything from alpinism and Scottish winter to multi pitch mountain trad and even big walling; but it's probably best suited to days at the crag, which let's face it is what most of us do most of anyway. With a pretty fair price of £75 I predict it will become very popular with everyone from beginners purchasing their first harness, through to seasoned climbers who want one model for a bit of everything.

Rock and Ice Gear Review no rating given just a review

In the Gorges du Verdon we spent long days on walls filled with hanging belays. Weighing a hair over 17 ounces, the Adjama is twice the weight of my sport harness, but it is four times more comfortable. As we headed north to Céüse I wondered if I would notice the weight and regret having not brought a sport-specific harness. I didn’t. In fact, the width of the harness actually made me feel secure and confident, especially when facing those old-school Céüse runouts.

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.
