Product Description Item No.   10266888

The Arc'Teryx Men's AR-395a Harness is an all-around climbing harness for the climber that loves to dabble in all types of climbing. The backbone of an Arc'Teryx harness is in the Warp Strength Technology™, distributing weight across the entire harness width, instead of just a narrow strip (as in traditional harnesses). The weight distribution is more comfortable for your body and your legs, meaning you can spend more time in your harness doing what you love. The four gear loops are strong and durable for attaching quickdraws and more, while four loops around the harness allow for ice clipper attachment (ice clippers sold separately). Cinch down the aluminum anodized buckle and get on the rock. Or ice, alpine, or mixed environment. You get the idea.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Superb yet to be found wanting Having been excited to get hold of one for a long time, since the scoops came out in the summer. I am pleasantly pleased yet quietly dubious about this harness. As a purely ice and alpine climber I loved the x350a, but was devastated when the absolutely abysmal i340a came out as its replacement. Not wanting to suffer with a god awful ornithological-diarrhoea-coloured version of the LEAF 350, I waited with my tatty old faithful for this. Whilst this can essentially be a wider swami version of the old x350 there are still some flaws that appear inherent. I took a size large to my 33" waist, to get a good leg fit (same as I had with the x350). I'll moan first: Why still are the ice clipper loops at the front Arc'teryx? I value my thighs and the positioning is completely unusable for screws, these would have been much better at the back on either side of the 5th loop instead, where a couple of 22's could hang quite happily prior to their use and not fill up space on the usable ice clippers. The other minor gripe is the positioning of the gear loops relative to the tail of the waist adjustment. Not only does it require threading through an ice clipper, if you so have one there it also interferes with the gear loops, requiring a faff to thread or adjust if you are lazy and don't de-rack first. Unlike the x350 the internals are not mesh and are much less padded (in favour of a wider belt). This works fine, its not sweaty but a wider waist leaves your muffin tops open for a good reminding pinch, should you so desire to fall awkwardly on this wearing not so much. No problems with thicker layers. Alas, it must just be me, I guess I have phat thighs but the leg loops do come in small. Idea to the wizards in Arc'teryx, let us buy the waist belt and leg loops in separate sizes yea. As with the size I have I can barely tighten the leg loops, making the retainers redundant and extra weight (I only say this cause I know how much of a fan your designers are at making everything uberlight or whatever). Finally laminated in elastic on the leg loops, I can hear it starting to un-stick at a marginal pull, so be wary of snagging the rear elastic, I may get a tailor to reinforce this cause I am sceptical about the durability here. Now some good things: Durability wise, burly is tried tested and proven, I love it, it worked well on the x350, and I have no qualms about its durability here. Comfort is fantastic, all day wear is perfectly ok and a couple of hanging belays proved its worth for long routes (I actually preferred to hang cause it was very comfortable) The rear webbing loop is a much needed upgrade, fantastic for stashing the random odds'n'sods that are rarely pulled on a climb without filling up the gear loops... Knife, tat, etc you know what I mean. On the gear loops, they are bigger! Which is super, almost too big but I'm pretty happy with that! Also the return to 'proper' ice clipper slots is fantastic, probably the only bad thing about the i340 but I wouldn't know cause I avoided it like a plague purely for this reason (someone has some serious explaining to do for that brainfart). Other than that its a harness, not much to go wrong really. Try it and see if you like it. I do overall. Also the poseidon blue is a wicked colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek, Simple, Comfortable, & Versatile I bought this harness based off of two aspects initially. 1) Versatility 2) Compact size when folded up into the provided bag. I use this harness for rock climbing and mountaineering so I needed a harness that could pack very small when travelling long distances but also a harness that would perform well in the gym. When the harness is properly folded up, it is basically the size of a water bottle (or smaller) and is extremely light while including plenty of gear loops and adjustable leg and waist straps. The buckles feel very solid and the excess adjustable straps tuck away very nicely. Although the harness does not contain padding, the comfort while free hanging is extremely surprising. Combined with my Arc'teryx Alpha AR pants, the harness is hardly noticeable while hiking. Yes the harness is a bit pricey but I don't have any negative comments about this harness because it has over exceeded my expectations. It's light, comfortable, durable, and versatile. What more could you ask for in a harness!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Most Comfortable Harnesses Around ...for me anyway This will be my third Arcteryx harness. I've got bigger legs, so had to end up with the large (previous Arcteryx harnesses have been medium). It's been my experience that the webbing does stretch over time, so take that into consideration. Also seems like these harnesses don't work for everyone, the webbing is thin and the edges are stiff, if it doesn't fit just right I can imagine this would be pretty uncomfortable. I really like having adjustable leg loops, especially for all-day climbing. Gear loops or fine, not my favorite, but get the job done. Nice and light. Addition of the haul loop is a much needed upgrade from prior iterations (not sure if its rated for hauling though like BD harnesses though?).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best harness for use with ice clippers This is my 3rd Arc'teryx harness and it's the best that I have owned! I really like how small it packs down, and how light it is. It barely takes up any space in my pack. The ice clipper slots are well placed and do not hinder access to the gear loops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's light The first thing you notice when you put this harness on is how light it is. It's less bulky than any other harness I've worn. I wondered how it would feel taking a fall, but I've been surprised at how I don't really notice a difference at all compared to my other, more padded harnesses. I've only noticed it when belaying and my leader is hang-dogging. That said, it's probably not the best harness for hanging belays, but that's what all the reviews say so you shouldn't expect that from this harness.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight, adjustable, quality construction Overall, a great harness. It's light, solid, and durable. My last Arc harness lasted years before needing to be replaced. This one has a slightly wider swami and adjustable leg loops. If you have bigger legs, you may be somewhat taxing on the extent of the adjustability - I wear a medium harness for my waist (32" waist), but had to max out the leg loops. So I returned the medium, and got the large, but I'm pretty close to having to pull through all of the slack in the waist loop.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sweet harness Great harness. Doesn't look like it should be comfortable given how small it packs down and how minimal the padding is -- but it is comfortable, even for the occasional hanging belay. I suspect this is due to the large width of the belt, which distributes pressure over a big area. ,,,,Watch out for the sizing. I have a 31inch waist and a medium fits me, but with the waist strap cinched as far as it can possibly go.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost great The most comfortable (non big-wall) harness I've owned but the rubber/plastic coverings on the gear loops tend to detach from the slings underneath which is annoying as I have to constantly reattach them.

How do I contact them with questions?
Complete their Warranty or Repair Request Form. If you have any questions or concerns, you can reach their Customer Service department at 1-866-458-2473.

What is and isn't covered under the Warranty Policy?
Defects in materials or workmanship are covered for the practical lifetime of the product. Material refers to zippers, buckles and fabrics. Workmanship refers to seams, seam tape and construction. Damage due to wear and tears such as rips, tears, abrasion or UV degradation, misuse or neglect is not covered under Arc'teryx's warranty policy but may be repairable for a fee.

What is covered under the Warranty Policy on Arc'teryx footwear?
Defects in material and workmanship will be covered by Arc'teryx for the practical lifetime of the product. The practical lifetime for footwear can vary drastically depending on the frequency and type of usage. Things such as the wearing of the outsole, frayed laces, nicks and tears can indicate that a shoe has surpassed its practical lifetime. These are examples of wear and tear or damage which are not covered by Arc'teryx. If you believe there is a defect in material or workmanship present on your product, please see follow the instructions on how to send it to Arc'teryx for assessment.

What does 'practical Lifetime of the product' mean?
Although Arc'teryx builds their products to last over extended periods of time, nothing lasts indefinitely. Materials will deteriorate and fade over time and moving parts will wear out. Arc'teryx will cover your product under their warranty policy until such a time that they have deemed the product to be worn out beyond reasonable repair. If the product is showing the signs of its age-for instance, the material has become thin or faded, there are rips and tears, the zippers no longer catch, the cuffs are fraying, or the soles are worn-they will take this into consideration when assessing your product for a warranty request. All gear will suffer from differing degrees of wear-and-tear, depending upon the user. Equipment used by an outdoor guide for 150 days a year will by comparison, degrade faster than gear used by a weekend skier. By taking care of your equipment you will ensure a longer lifetime for your gear. Arc'teryx recommends that you visit their Product Care page for more information on how to wash and care for your equipment.

Will Arc'teryx repair or replace my product?

They have repair centers in both Europe and North America that employ the same custom machinery and techniques that they use to create the original products. If the product is not repairable, or the cost of the repairs exceeds the value of the product, Arc'teryx may, at their discretion, choose to replace the product instead.

What happens if I rip or tear my jacket or pants?
Skis, snowboards, crampons, axes and other sharp equipment will damage clothing and gloves if they come into direct contact with them. Rips, tears, burns and punctures can occur during normal use and while carrying your equipment, and are not covered under the terms of the warranty. To assist you in keeping your product in optimal working condition, Arc'teryx offers a variety of repairs for a reasonable charge. Contact them and they will be happy to discuss your options.

For products made from GORE-TEX® fabrics they suggest using a GORE-TEX® authorized repair facility for alterations. There is a list of GORE-TEX® authorized repair shops in your area on the GORE-TEX® website.

Do alterations void my warranty?

If something should fail which is unrelated to any alterations, Arc'teryx will stand behind their products, provided that the Arc'teryx product is being used as intended. For a list of alteration facilities in your area, please visit the GORE-TEX® website.

How long will it take if I send my product in for warranty assessment and/or repair?
