If you're looking for a harness that allows you to climb the highest peaks and tallest walls, then the 4B Slight is for you.
This harness is so light and thin you won't even notice it on your body. But don't worry, it's also very strong and secure, thanks to the high quality material and four aluminium buckles (2 on the waist belt and 1 on each leg loop). And that's not all, the Slight 4B also has four asymmetrical gear loops to help you keep your gear organized. Each gear loop holds up to 5kg of gear. And you know what's best?
4B Slight is a harness that will never let you down. It's your reliable partner for every climbing challenge.
- 4 Aluminium (AL 7075) quick buckles – 12 mm legs, 16 mm waist.
- Innovative ergonomic waist and legs.
- 4 Asymmetric gear loops (5 kg).
- Light weight belay loop in a contrasting colour (width 12 mm, 15 kN).

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.

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.
