This is a great harness. I have used it for top-rope, lead, and gym climbing. No problems. It is comfortable on and off the rope. I have made some short hikes in between routes and I felt no discomfort. It is lightweight and the perfect addition to your gear bag. Buy this quality product!

Here is to many redpoints in your future. Happy climbing.

This harness is really comfortable to just sit there and hang on the rope. That's the only good thing about it. The buckles at the leg loop tend to get rusty easily after wash. I have to put some WB-40 to the rusting spots. Hope it won't damage the fabric. It's heavy and pricey.

The wide waist belt and leg loops of the new Petzl Calidris provide all the comfort, support and ventilation needed for long aid routes and other activities requiring extended periods of hanging (cleaning and equipping routes, etc). Lightweight and comfortable, with large gear-carrying capacity, the Calidris is perfect for big wall climbing. In addition, it's sized to fit larger users for all types of climbing


As the most-padded and comfortable harness in Petzl's line, the Calidris works well for long multi-pitch trad and aid lines. Sliding DoubleBack buckles on the waist and legs can be adjusted easily to accommodate layers for cold days or keep you from going numb at a hanging belay. The Calidris' four gear loops hold a large rack of cams, stoppers, and hooks.
