The original Wasatch dawn-patrollers wanted a lightweight, packable harness that would handle ski belays and rappels while pioneering today’s popular couloirs. They made it in to work at Black Diamond and designed the original Couloir Harness to perfectly meet those requirements. The latest iteration surpasses even the original goals, with a new construction that uses hydrophobic fabric and Fusion Comfort Technology™. An ingenious system prevents ice screws from clanging around, with slots on the leg loops that match up with Ice Clipper loops on the waist. If you plan on skiing steep lines with technical elements, the Couloir harness will comfortably improve your odds of success.

Questions & Reviews
I'm a 33-34 waist and 6'4" tall (pure muscle...and some ice cream). Do you think I should go for the M/L or the L/XL?
Took off a star because much lighter options that fill the same niche exist for the same price.
