Hello, is this harness cam delivery to Asian country? I’m Malaysian and very interested in this harness. Thank you.

Hi Kristy! Unfortunately we are not able to ship Arc'teryx outside of the USA. Check out the Mammut Zephira Harness for a close comparison. We are able to ship Mammut outside the USA.

To clear up any confusion

    So I know Arc'teryx harnesses can sometimes not make sense and a little confusing on which one is best for you, here is a break down video from Arc'teryx to clear everything up:

    Best Harness

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I just got this for my girlfriend and she loves it! By far the comfiest harness she's owned and has great gear storage. The neoprene design is very forgiving and lightweight. Arc'teryx has a mens version as well that I have and it is by far the best! Everyone should consider this harness when buying a climbing harness. The only thing that I would not recommend this for is big wall climbing because it is not padded in any way so you would get bruised hips and legs doing big wall climbing.

    Gear loops are horrific

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The harness is great for hang comfort and true to size - especially if you're smaller and need an XS harness. BUT the gear loops easily separate from their plastic outer, causing gear to to catch on the inner nylon loop in the gap between the anchor points and the outer loop housing.) Contacted arcteryx about the flaws and was told it was a "feature."

    Best Harness EVER!!!

      I've tried many harnesses over the last few years and this harness fits like glove. The quality and thought put into this harness makes it my go to harness for trad and sport climbing. For the long multipitch routes where you have to sit or rest on your harness.. you can't really feel it's there - unlike some other harnesses, which I've owned, that cut into your legs or your waist causing you to lose blood circulation in many areas.



      LOVE LOVE LOVE it..

      Best Harness EVER!!!

      I love it!

        Not only is this harness super cute and flexible, but it packs really small and is very comfortable. I trust it with everything and I'm completely satisfied with the purchase.

        I love it!

        Great Harness

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I have purchased harnesses in the past but haven't been as satisfied as I am with this one. Its completely adjustable which is great for cold weather layers. Low profile, comfortable and easy to use. I know I can trust it and always feel safe in this harness.

        Awesome Harness!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This harness is super lightweight and the colors are freakin sweet! I've used it several times now; it's very comfortable and shows no signs of "weaknesses". Although it's light in weight, it appears to be very sturdily made throughout (buckles, gear loops, etc...). I'm hoping this purchase will last me a while. Did I mention how much I love the bright colors?! I even got the matching chalk bag! lol :-)

        Awesome Harness!

        thrilled with this purchase!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Not only did Arcteryx continue to be spot on with their color combos, but this harness is exactly what I was looking for in security and lightweight performance. From the crag to alpine mountaineering, i'm stoked with my purchase.

        thrilled with this purchase!

        I love it!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I've used this harness climbing at least one hundred times and it's fantastic. I've used cheaper harnesses and they're not nearly as comfortable. This harness is lightweight and doesn't make me super sweaty when climbing. Despite not being super padded it is not uncomfortable when belaying someone or when resting when you're halfway up the face. Favorite harness ever!

        poor craftsmanship

          The gear loop fell apart on my first trip with this harness. I will definitely exchange the harness!
