Questions & Reviews
For anyone who is considering purchasing this harness but is concerned that it may be too specialized, I would suggest that it’s much more versatile than you might initially think.
I’ve used the Choucas Light for alpine routes, rappels while skiing, ice climbing, summer scrambles that get a little too technical, self-evacuation from chairlifts while ski patrolling, and even glacier travel (which was probably its original intent).
Taking one star off because the blue mesh that makes up the structure between the dyneema, pokes through and can abrade clothing.
