Got a killer deal on this harness. Wasn't planning on keeping it but it was so comfy I had to. Plenty of extra padding over my friend's harnesses. Doesn't feel or look cheap. Plenty of gear loops. Durability on the gear loops may be questionable, we'll see.

I would have given this harness a "5" but I've only used one other harness, the Black Diamond Momentum. The harness is lightweight, easy to use, easy to adjust, and the waist belt is extra plush and soft. Plenty of room for tools. For this price point you can't go wrong with Corax 2.

Petzl Corax Climbing HarnessWith a full range of adjustments, the Petzl Corax Climbing Harness wears well over pants as a sport harness one day and accommodates five winter layers the next for a mixed route. Its pre-threaded Double Back waist buckles help center the belay loop while still allowing a full range of adjustment. Woven polyester mesh on the inside of the harness wicks moisture for improved comfort and speeds drying in wet conditions. Perforated closed cell foam on waist belt and leg loops increases breathability. Four gear loops and four Caritool slots offer ample organization and storage options for your gear, and the releasable rear elastic lets you relieve pressure without removing your harness. Adjustable leg loops allow size to be adjusted depending on comfort desired or layers of clothing worn and permit the harness to be put on when wearing skis or crampons.
Petzl designed its Men's Corax Harness with maximum versatility in mind so you can climb rock, ice, alpine, or via ferrata comfortably. Its Frame Construction Technology consists of high-strength polyester webbing for durability, soft mesh for ventilation and breathability, and closed-cell foam padding that eliminates any pressure points for comfort. DoubleBack buckles easily adjust and center the harness for an ideal fit, and the adjustable leg loops accommodate multiple layers for winter climbing as well as allow you to put the harness on even with mountaineering or ski boots on. You can unclip the back risers for drop-seat use on big walls. Petzl integrated two rigid gear loops at the front and left the loops at the back flexible so you can carry all the equipment without interfering with your backpack, and there are slots available for Petzl's Caritool (sold separately) for even more gear-storing possibilities.
