The Petzl Aquila Climbing Harness is an adjustable climbing harness for technical climbs and mountaineering adventures. Built with FUSEFRAME Technology, the thin harness is compact, lightweight and has a wider waist belt and leg loops for comfort during longer hang times. Distributing weight more evenly for a long day in the harness, the forged doubleback HD buckles provide smooth adjustments depending on your clothing layers. Gear loops include two flexible ones at the back and two rigid at the front as well as two CARITOOL tool holder slots for additional versatility. Talk about your personalized racking space.
FEATURES of the Petzl Aquila Climbing Harness
Optimized weight and comfort
Clean design of the Fuseframe Technology construction offers excellent weight distribution and minimizes pressure points
Thermo-formed foam allows incorporation of strength elements into the layer of foam and thus avoids having pressure points on the yokes
Compact, lightweight waistbelt in thin foam
No compression points or friction zones on the waistbelt because there are no crossing seams
Fabric fused with the foam for better weight-bearing over the entire harness
Very flexible leg loop attachment bridges for more comfortable walking and climbing
Adjustable leg loops remain adjusted without impeding movement
Double Back HD buckles in forged aluminum have a slim, rounded design that offers good grip and fluid glide of the webbing for easy and quick adjustment and tightening of the waistbelt and leg loops
Retainers for webbing
Reinforced tie-in points in high-tenacity polyethylene for improved resistance to wear from rope friction

Amazing harness, comfortable and light are the most defining features.I bought this harness back in February 2015, and have been using it every day at my job belaying people, and climbing in it just as much. It is so comfortable wearing for hours on end and holding the weight of climbers who are resting on top rope. The adjustable leg loops work perfectly for someone who has abnormally large quads, the belay loop is dyneema which I know has great wear resistance and strength, however the belay loop is small (compared to the traditional width) which gives me a little reservation on suggesting this harness for someone who expects to climb and use this harness on a daily basis, however once you understand the material strengths of dyneema you can easily trust this harness with anyone's life.

This is one gnarly harness!!!I have spent the last few months looking for a harness the is on the lighter side but still really comfortable!! And all my searching stopped here!
This harness is great for spending a day at the gym or working on that tough project at the local crag!
Bottom line... the aquila is pretty kick butt!!
