Bottom Line Light and efficient

Sweet for specific applications. For skimo races I believe a more traditional shape, like the alp racing, simply rides better. But for packability and use on long alpine/ice days this design can't be beat.

Taking one star off because the blue mesh that makes up the structure between the dyneema, pokes through and can abrade clothing.

Used this for skimo races and glacier travel last winter and summer scrambling and easy alpine climbing this summer. I DEFINITELY do not want to take a fall in it (or any other skimo harness) but it's fairly comfortable for rapping or even belaying. The adjustment system works really well and never feels like it's going to fall off. The gear loops are actually big enough for a small scrambling rack (though I wish there were two additional gear loops - so 1 star removed). Just make sure you tie into both bunny ears and you're good to go!
