Great harness light and easy to use, I used it up in Alaska a month ago and it can be uncomfortable if you have to do any repelling or hanging out in cravasses.

pros- comfortable, easy to put on/take off, lightweight cons- havent found any yet I have only used this product on a few rock ledges and cliffs around home so far but plan to use it on a few climbs in colorado this spring, it should work great. Also as always a great price from whittaker mountaineering, they seem to have the best prices that I can find anywhere and the customer service is great. We had a problem with my shipping address and I emailed them and they fixed it right away and emailed me back and the shipment showed up on time. thanks guys!!!

This is my number one pick for a do-it-all harness. It's durable construction is ready to take on rock, snow, and ice. Quick release leg loops allow easy on/ off whether you're wearing crampons, or you are like me and are just too tired to lift your leg up after a day on a rock face. Other alpine/ gym harnesses may serve your purpose mountaineering, but Alpine Bod's gear loops make this the only harness you'll need. I have used the Alpine Bod Harness for travel on Rainier and Adams, rock climbing in Texas and Colorado, as well as indoor walls. I couldn't ask for a better piece of equipment, or a better price.
