/ PRODUCT NEWS: The Puma: DMM's First Female Specific Harness
A great deal of effort has gone into getting the sizing, waist-belt shape and rise (crotch to waist distance) configured specifically to suit the female anatomy. This is because quite often the rise between women's leg loops and the waist belt is longer. We’ve had the ladies at DMM, local female climbers and sponsored women climbers involved throughout the design process.

Hmm - looks good, but I've just had a look at the article, and the DMM product page, and I can't see a picture of the back of the harness to see how wide the waist belt is at the back, which is something I'm interested in.
The Puma waist is 8.8cm at its widest point in the small of the back. It tapers to 5.8cm at the sides to allow for greater freedom of movement.
I hope that helps

That's rubbish - they bought out the Electra about 10 years ago, which was the ladies version of the Zeus.
Very true. I remember the Zeus had lots of gold thread that just seemed to fall out and made it the least robust harness ever made.

On DMM website as in the UKC Product News.
"The Puma, DMM's first female specific climbing harness, has similar styling and features as the popular unisex Renegade harness, but it has some very subtle changes in sizing and ratios of dimensions to ensure the best possible female fit."
Mick, after the "Indian Face" article, you of all people should know that writing something on the internet doesn't make it true.
It doesn't have to be on the 'internet'.
I'm sure Simon will clear it up.
It's more than ten years ago because I remember selling them when I worked in Leeds Nevisport and that was 1999 and I think they had been around a few years then. I feel old... ;-)
Yeah - should have put "at least" in there!
My Zeus was my second harness and I loved it - gold trim and everything! Still got it somewhere in a cupboard.
does it come in green?
