The Petzl Calidris Climbing Harness is a comfortable harness for big wall climbing and equipping routes. The wide waist belt and leg loops stand out when the harness first comes into view, while on the inside FRAME construction features webbing that helps spread out your weight over the large surface area. Perforated foam padding along with breathable mesh vent and cushion as you work hard at the mass amount of rock above. Two double back buckles at the waist and one at each leg loop make adjustments quick and simple, regardless of whether you're sporting shorts on a hot summer day or layered up for a cold weather climb. Plenty of gear loops and CARITOOL tool holder slots give you space to rack your gear just the way you like it.

FEATURES of the Petzl Calidris Climbing Harness

  • FRAME Construction technology

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a great harness for me. This Harness was not worth the purchase for me. I think you're better off buying either a full on Wall harness that's going to be more comfortable, more durable and have more loops for gear - Or a much lighter and more affordable free climbing harness. I found that this harness isn't ideal for either of the activities. My gear loop on the left side broke very unexpectedly within two years of purchasing it resulting in me losing a few hundred dollars worth of gear while.on a wall in Yosemite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one of the best harnesses you can buy. I absolutely love this harness. I have been using a Calidris harness for ten years now. I had to replace it once, not because it was worn out, but because according to standards you are supposed to retire harnesses, rope, and basically anything fabric after five years of use. I am a cope and climbing instructor and this harness is safe and comfortable. I use it to rig our towers as well as sit in it suspended off the side of one of the platforms to hook participants up to the zip line. This harness has to be the most comfortable harness I have been in and when my five years is up with my current harness I will be buying another one exactly like it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for roadside crags. This harness is comfy and durable but very heavy. Overall it takes care of my need for a durable everyday harness for the local crag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from adjustable, comfy, but heavy After 15 years, I finally outgrew my trad harness. After much research, I choose this harness. As a route setter at an indoor wall, I knew I wanted wide legs with padding. Even after over an hour of hanging this harness is still comfortable. Plenty of room for gear. With the two parachute buckles on the waistband, it is very easy to share this harness with others and always keep the belay loop centered. Huge adjustability, this one should last me the rest of my life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love mine.... It's great! I love mine- how there are adjustable leg loops, and waist loop. There is one very similar to this one called the Petzl Sama- it is very much alike except the leg loops aren't adjustable.... If you're looking for a fully adjustable harness, this is the way to go.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from If it fit me right it would be awesome. Make sure you get the right size. I got size two. I am a 32 waist and the straps are just to the end, just barely enough to secure me in. Sadly after talking to customer support I cannot exchange for a size 1, which would be a lot safer for me. Remember all climbing sales are final. The Policy Stinks in my opinion. I think I can make it work, maybe I'll gain some weight. :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Harness I'm not going to beat the dead horse. Like everyone this harness if great. It's held up repeatedly through all my ice and rock climbing endeavors. My only complaint, I wish there was a version with fixed hard-plastic hooks. Especially when wearing gloves while ice climbing these flexible hooks drive me crazy..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great harness!!!! After using/comparing many many different harness designs I can confidently say that this is one of the best all-around harnesses I've ever tried. I always go for harnesses with double waist buckles (easier to keep the belay loop centered) and leg buckles as opposed to the popular elastic on the top-leg. Gear loops are solid as well.
