I'm not going to repeat what everybody else has said, Its tiny, its light, its minimalist. We got that part right?
Something that wasn't stated was that its not all that uncomfortable for rappels and hanging. It might not be comfortable but its not painful or awkward.
Easy to put on over layers, I didn't have the problems with the buckle in the cold like some users, yet.
The gear loops are placed perfectly granted they could be a little stiffer.
So far I've used it midwinter mixed climbing, spring splitboard mountaineering and once sport climbing...
All in all an amazing piece of backcountry gear.

Very light weight, very comfortable...you hardly notice it's there. Hard to double back with freezing fingers, but everything's hard to do with freezing fingers. Very glad we got these.

by Brendan Excellent harness for alpine mountaineering
Great harness for the $$$. Easily fits in the tiny stuff sack it comes in and is very easy to put on over ski pants and jackets due to the quick clip leg loops. If you're a 34" waist get the bigger one. (I think it's the L-XL) just so you have room over your clothing. The only problem I foresee is in really cold temps with cold hands. The waist strap when doubled back is very small and tight. Other than that it does exactly what I bought it for. In fact, everything I bought for my trip; crampons, beaners, helmet, harness, gloves, headlamps, axe, tent all work great and shipping is fast. Everything I ordered I've been very pleased with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Donna Compact and well thought out.
This is the harness you need for ski touring over glaciated terrain. The small high vis sac makes it easy to find in your pack, and the quick release leg loops allow you to put it on without removing your skis.

by Larry Beware of the inner buckle (pinch-locking plate)!
Great mountaineering and ice-climbing harness for all reasons covered in other reviews, BUT poor waist buckle design for cold outdoors. The pinch-locking function of the "inner" buckle makes it very hard to insert the waistbelt between the "outer" and "Inner" buckles. I tore my thumbnail trying to pry open and thread this buckle in 10-degrees and gusts 10-30 mph. Could use longer tabs on "outer" and "inner" buckles, or a fully opening speed-buckle design, or a standard single-buckle double-back design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Havell Fast, Light & Ideal for Ski Mountaineering
A perfect harness for fast and light application. I throw this in the pack for any adventure with technical sections that might require quick rappels or short climbing scenarios. My teammates and myself have used this in ski mountaineering in the San Juans, the Selkirks, the Himalaya (Shishapangma) and other locations that involve glacier travel or potential cruxy sections. Most recently skiing the Otterbody route on the Grand Teton in WY. The basic design covers every use you might need with enough gear loops, quick release leg loops and incredibly light packaging. Fully reliable and completely ideal for technical alpine terrain. The color is also good as it is a quick find in your pack & easy to double back & check.
