Review by marks on Mar. 31, 2007
Though this is designed for mouintaineering the wide range of waist sizes it will adapt to, makes it an ideal second harness (for friends). I do not recommend this as your primary harness though it is extremely light and won't snag on the rock (i.e. while chimney climbing).
No comfort.

Lightweight, easy on-off over crampons or skis. Perfect for alpine endeavors where your insulating layers overcome the lack of padding. Would avoid this for multi-pitch hanging belays.
No padding, and no belay loop.

Review by jaredmartin35 on Feb. 14, 2011
harness works like it's supposed to. very adjustable and fits to any person. great for an extra harness
not very comfortable to sport climb in. falling in this harness makes for a very uncomfortable situation.

Great mountaineering, canyoneering, and extra harness. Lightweight, dries fast, and the price can't be beat.
Not enough padding for an all around harness but it's not designed to be.

Great for alpine touring and alpine routs, light, easy on with crampons. We got one of each size for students to use but have gotten alot of use touring.
crotch is not the most comfortable

Review by Facebook User on Nov. 08, 2010
Great harness for the price. Love having the clasps on the leg loops... makes it easy to take on and off.
Not having a belay loop means you'll need to use a 'biner for belaying.

Light weight harness... easily compacted into a pack. Real simple easy to use harness that's great for sport climbing as well as roping up for a big alpine route.
Doesn't have a traditional belay loop which takes some getting used to if you're a climber at the crag and not an alpine climber.

Great back up harness, compacts down in size nicely, lightweight and durable...
I wouldn't recommend this as a primary, no padding...
