AR-385A HARNESS Versatility and performance come together in an exceptionally comfortable harness that is made to specifically fit women who climb rock, ice and alpine routes. Adjustable leg loops allow for a precise fit that tailors the harness to your size and accommodates variable layers needed when using one harness for all disciplines of climbing. The longer belay loop accommodates a women's differential between waist and leg loops. Arc'teryx Warp Strength Technology(TM) equally distributes weight across the swami for enduring comfort. Burly(TM) Double Weave material is strong and flexible, laminated elastic webbing in the adjustable leg loops extends rebound life and the easy access drop legs allow for bathroom breaks without taking the harness off. The waistband is constructed with a softer edge to eliminate cutting and binding. The AR-385a elevates performance, comfort and versatility. WARP STRENGTH TECHNOLOGY(TM) Warp Strength Technology(TM) Advantage: WST(TM) differs from traditional harness construction in that the load is evenly distributed across the entire width of the harness structure rather than loading a single, narrow strip of webbing in the centre or running edge binding, both of which tend to concentrate the pressure of the harness making them less comfortable. Warp Strength Technology(TM) cradles the body and the load is universally dispersed from edge to edge. This construction method provides a high degree of support and this new generation of harnesses are more comfortable over time and usage than ever before. The waistbelt and leg loops now include thin reinforcements that help keep the load distributed more evenly across their width and the edges have been softened for a smoother transition. All resulting in a WST(TM) harnesses that are durable, ultra compact, comfortably supple and light weight.
