Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight & versatile I've been wanting a lightweight compact harness for occasional travel & outdoor & a lot of gym climbing. I thought I wouldn't like the adjustable legs but it's nice to have that adjustment. The loops are large--lots of room for gear--and the ability to switch them out if they get worn is a handy feature. Like most lightweight harnesses, it feels like you don't have a harness on. I don't do much hanging but I've been very comfortable. It can be tough to get it folded into the bag--I have to remove my belay devices and keep my belay cards outside the bag. The colors are gorgeous!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, ice clipper position is good, waist larger than expected Bought this harness about a month ago, and have some observations: -So far harness has been comfortable when I take falls/ hang, but I haven't had any super long multi-pitch days. -Front ice clipper positioning is great! Unlike many other harnesses, I can actually see my clippers! -The waist belt fit larger than I expected. I have a 29.5 inch waist, so the size chart suggested a size medium. However,even with the waist belt of the medium cinched as tight as it could go, it was too loose, and would slide down my hips when weighted with a full trad rack. Size small was perfect for waist size. -The leg loops on the other hand, fit a bit small-- my leg circumference is about 21.5'', and the size small is just too small, size medium is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Girlfriend loves it I recently bought this for my girlfriend for her birthday. She is so stoked. With her other harnesses she would constantly complain about her small gear loops and not being able to comfortably carry a decent sized rack. "small people have to carry gear too!" this harness seems to solve that problem! This harness has huge loops, they hang pretty low tho, wearing this harness for the first time you'll probably notice right away your cams are hanging lower down your leg than before. She got used to this right away and has had no problem. Its definitely a great all around harness, not much heavier than those lightweight sport climbing harnesses that last a week of hard cragging, and beefy enough for a big trad rack and comfy enough for glacier traveling. Plus ice clipper slots make it great for ice! Also she was stoked on the colors! The only con is the price. For a $150 you could buy three harnesses from other companies, we'll have see if its 3 times as good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So beautiful you could buy it as art! I love this harness! It is truly a piece of art as well as a very functional harness. It is super light, new materials (at least for me) and a great fit. My body is quite curvy and therefore this harness with adjustable leg loops fits me perfectly, both with indoor and outdoor clothing. Couldn't be happier with it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fancy I bought this for myself for Christmas. So far, it's been super awesome. The harness is really comfortable, unlike most other harnesses I've tried. The material is really smooth and lightweight, but feels really durable. It's definitely a bit pricey, but I think it's worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full points for thinking about bathroom breaks Just bought this harness and haven't worn it outside yet but the fact that you can easily go to the bathroom without taking it off deserves full points - well done Arcteryx design people for your pragmatism. It's light, comfortable and easy to pull on as well

Hipbelt Sizing
SIZE Small Medium Large
Men's 27 - 32" 32 - 37" 37 - 42"
Women's 25 - 30" 27 - 32" 30 - 35"

How to Find Your Foot Measurements

Arc'teryx packs are sized either in 3-length options: Short (S), Regular (R) and Tall (T), or in 2-length options: Short/Regular (SR), and Regular/Tall (RT).

Sizing refers to YOUR OWN BACK LENGTH

Measure your Back:

• Measure along the spine between the 7th cervical vertebra and the level of the hip iliac crest
• Compare this measurement to the Sizing Charts
• It is possible to interchange different size shoulder strap and hipbelt components on many Arc'teryx Packs, but this will not change or affect the back-length of the pack.
