Climbing Harnesses

Harnesses come in all shapes and sizes but as it is arguably the most important piece of personal safety equipment, attaching you to the rope and belayer, you should invest wisely. Sit in harnesses are the most common type you will use for climbing. All harnesses have a waist loop and 2 leg loops. The waistbelt should settle just above your hipbones and should not be able to be pulled down over your hips, leg loops should be tight but not hinder movement. Check our shop to buy.
