Mammut Zephir Altitude
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Mammut points out that its Zephir Altitude Harness is the lightest harness to date, and it was designed solely for minimalist alpine climbers and ski touring enthusiasts. Weighing in at a mere seven and a half ounces, this harness owes its incredible light weight to Mammut's innovative Split Webbing technology that splits one piece of webbing in two sections to distribute your body's pressure evenly throughout the entire harness without using additional materials. This also allows for extraordinary ventilation and breathability throughout the waist and legs so you barely feel this harness at all while you climb and ski. The Zephir Altitude also features durable Dyneema webbing constructed in the leg loops that gives it similar protection to those bulky and heavy harnesses. A Click-buckle at the waist lets you quickly put on or take off this harness in critical moments on the mountain. You can adjust the legs to an ideal fit regardless of how many layers you have on, and clips at the legs and backside allow drop-seat functionality. With two gear loops and attachments for four ice screw carabiners, you have just the right amount of gear to make your alpine ascent comfortably.
The Mammut Zephir Altitude Harness is an extremely lightweight alpine harness with minimal packing volume for high-altitude and ski tours. The split webbing technology (patent pending) in the hip belt, together with the very strong Dyneema webbing in the leg loop construction, ensure great comfort and allow a modern design with large ventilation openings for high breathability. Gear loops and the Drop Seat buckle are positioned to allow the Zephir Altitude to be worn easily together with a backpack with a hip belt.
Mammut's Zephir Altitude Harness is specially designed for life on a glacier. Its minimal packing volume, quick clip adjustable leg loops, and low bulk hip belt make for easy use with crampons, skis, and packs. 2 gear loops and 4 attachment points for ice screw carabiners.
