Rated 5 out of 5 by paul Very compact perfect for use in backpack
I am a Ski Patroller and this will be in my pack for emergency situations such as low angle rescue.
It is easy to get on and can be done while seated down.

Since wearing an initial prototype to the current product, I have been extremely impressed. Very light and perfect for glacier travel and ski mountaineering. A much more functional and comfortable harness than the other minimalist skimo harnesses I own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Adam D The new standard for mountains like Rainier.
I replaced my old alpine bod harness with the couloir harness. The softer material and lighter weight are major improvements. It's more comfortable to walk in and takes up less room in your pack. Not a good harness to spend lots of time hanging in, but that's not the point of this harness.
For climbs like Mount Rainier and big glacier climbs all over the world, this is my new harness of choice.

Great visibility color.
Easy to put while wearing skis or crampons or snowshoes or stilt...
The buckle isn't easy to put on with gloves. With practice, it is still not easy...
The gear loop are a bit soft.
I use it for not too technical glacier travel, fast and light mission, ski mountaineering expedition or as a back up in my bag.
Bottom line: Great harness but the buckle isn't easy to use with gloves.

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.
