Product Reviews
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing harness, comfortable and light are the most defining features. I bought this harness back in February 2015, and have been using it every day at my job belaying people, and climbing in it just as much. It is so comfortable wearing for hours on end and holding the weight of climbers who are resting on top rope. The adjustable leg loops work perfectly for someone who has abnormally large quads, the belay loop is dyneema which I know has great wear resistance and strength, however the belay loop is small (compared to the traditional width) which gives me a little reservation on suggesting this harness for someone who expects to climb and use this harness on a daily basis, however once you understand the material strengths of dyneema you can easily trust this harness with anyone's life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Harness I've ever owned. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] So happy with this harness. Easy to put on, Feels great, light, and keeps your straps out of your way. The belay loop is also slimmer than those super wide belay loops which is nice because it stays out of your way when being belayed. No negatives. A+++

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect harness! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I absolutely love this harness. The quality is amazing and it adjust to fit perfectly no matter what I am waring. I added the new petzl ice clip and it couldn’t be a better fit. This harness is amazingly comfortable, I bought it to to do tree work and belay my kids but my new Battman Belt has renewed my sense of adventure so I am planning exciting climbing and repelling adventures for my kids and I. Life is good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one gnarly harness!!! I have spent the last few months looking for a harness the is on the lighter side but still really comfortable!! And all my searching stopped here! This harness is great for spending a day at the gym or working on that tough project at the local crag! Bottom line... the aquila is pretty kick butt!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from unobtrusive [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] fits well. gear loops are where you expect them. unobtrusive when you're climbing. haul loop in the back is a bit difficult to access, but I'm sure I'd recommend this harness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic fit [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This harness has a fantastic fit and a quality build. Everything feels solid when straps are manipulated and the padding is just right when in use.
