Moosejaw Staff Pick "This guy is killer. The Arcteryx R280 Harness features Warp Strength Technology that makes it a very sleek and minimal harness. It is a great all-around harness that allows for a lot of mobility. There is no excessive padding, which is something you have to get used to. To be honest, the lack of padding was a bit of a brain freeze for me when I first got it, like when you eat too much ice cream too fast. I was so used to big, bulky harnesses, which I associated with safety. So much so, that when I first started using the R280 I was convinced that I would die. Now, nothing else compares! The stretchy leg loops offer a precise fit without restricting range of motion and it has a drop seat... which is really convenient when you need to get out of your harness quickly. The ease of taking a harness off is a big deal to me. Lest we forget that time I took my harness off, along with my pants, in the middle of the climbing gym. THAT S#!T DOESN'T HAPPEN WITH THE R280."

"Amazing design and very comfortable - well worth the price!"
This harness is so light and well made; it's so comfortable that I often forget I'm wearing it! I could hang in it all day! It's minimalist in design but with very well thought out features. I especially love the stiff gear loops that are shaped so gear falls forward and is easier to grab when you need it. It's lined with a cushy mesh that keeps me cool and dry even on hot days. I can't even express how much more comfortable and functional it is compared to the other harnesses I've used (BD Momentum and Petzl Luna). Well worth the extra money as I'm going to be wearing and loving this for many years!
