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.

300 g

M: 300 g / 10.6 oz

CAMP doesn't provide the weights for other sizes so we're working on gathering this info by hand, stay tuned!

Sizes XS, S, M, L, XL
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.

Better gear loops than Sitta, less comfy

Gear loops are very functional
Very light and compact
Easy to fit
Extra gear loop in back (separate from haul loop) is such a bonus
Snug ice clipper slots don't fit BD - because of the steep angle at the plastic clip
"If only" the rear two gear loops were back 1 or 2mm they'd fit much better around ice clippers
Feels unpadded
I’ve used it a few of times


I do feel like this is an upgrade from a Sitta in that the gear loops are much better, and I can adjust the leg loops. Also, it has two more forward ice clipper slots.

I use small Petzl, Singing Rock (best), CAMP Kilo (nice metal but Petzl tool holes are too narrow :( and Grivel Carrybiner - which does fit but it's spine depth deforms the flatness of the harness belt.

It's kind of a downgrade from the Sitta in comfort, though.

Full Featured, Light and Mostly Comfortable

Packs down pretty small
Legs loops are uncomfortable
I’ve used it a bunch

This is a pretty good alpine focused harness. The waist belt is comfortable and the gear loops work pretty well, though gear tends to bunch up together when the loops are super stuffed.

Also I wish it had ice clipper slots behind all the gear loops as the slots in front of the gear loops don't do much good. That being said, I've only ever needed two ice clippers, positioned between the gear loops, and that works great on this harness. The biggest issue is that with extended handing the leg loops become super uncomfortable. Overall this is a good harness for ice climbing and and objectives that require a light, but not super comfortable harness.

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.
