The Huascaran harness is lightweight to wear, but a heavyweight when it comes to its environmental qualifications. The sit harness, which has a classic Mono buckle, is the first climbing harness on the market to be certified as bluesign® approved. Side buckles on the leg loops allow the harness to be put on or taken off without removing skis or crampons – for extra comfort and security in the mountains. Its dual-component waist belt construction with soft edging and spacer structure ensures enhanced wear comfort and maximum breathability. And with its flexible gear loops and ice screw clip attachment points, the Huascaran is an intelligent companion for glacier crossings and high-alpine use.
