This is the ultimate all rounder, just the sort of clever design that fits with the full range of climbing disciplines: from trad and sport, through to whatever winter or alpine climbing shenanigans you might be getting up to.
But why all the fuss, why is it so popular? Sure, it’s a top of the range, fully featured, adjustable leg, padded harness, but what are the special design features that place it ahead of the pack? Well, for a start there is the free floating waistbelt – this allows you to centre the gear loops no matter what size you are or how many layers you are wearing. The waistbelt also has an internal lumbar support that spreads the load and provides crucial support, not to mention comfort and freedom of movement. And then there is the racking system with seven gear loops – three on each side and one on the back. With that much choice it’s easy to keep everything exactly where you want it. Another important design feature is the buckle shape. We’ve rounded off the corners and kept the profile low – this makes them less likely to snag in constricted situations. And finally it’s worth mentioning a few of the micro features which make this such a special harness. Cordura face fabric is used on the waistbelt and legs, ensuring extra durability. The tie-in points are also protected by a layer of Cordura in a highlight colour so that any excessive wear is easily seen and the belay loop is built of a really tough tape rated at 25kN.
Renegade Pro includes Threadback buckles, which will stay reliably synched in the same position even after a full day.
