Three ounces that fit in the palm of your hand.
Blue Ice's Choucas Light Harness only weighs three ounces and packs down to the palm of your hand for ultralight, ultra-compact ski mountaineering missions. Despite its minimalist-minded design, the Choucas still boasts two gear loops and two attachments for ice screw holders. Buckled leg loops let you put the harness on with skis or crampons still on.
- Ultralight harness packs small for ski mountaineering missions

So light, easy to put on, and so packable. Wraps up in its own buttstrap to the size of a billiard ball.
Only problem is when it's not clipped/tied in, it just hangs on with the plastic buckle and it feels a little loose on me. Perhaps go to a smaller size to make it feel snug.
Purchased one of these for a technical teams skimo race. Only the essentials at a weight/size no one would believe. Blue Ice is legit.
