I have just upgraded my harness from an Ocun Zephyr to a Petzl Adjama for all my indoor, sport and trad needs.

The reason for upgrade was that I bought the Ocun harness second hand from ebay when I was first starting out climbing 18 months ago. I realise that not knowing the history of the harness was not ideal, but I checked all the stitching very carefully before use. I have taken quite a few falls on it in the 18 months that I have owned it (all indoors - no trad falls yet!!), but none even close to being factor 1. I thought it's finally time to replace given that I am planning to do a lot of outdoor climbing this year.

Should I keep it as a back up harness, or just cut the loops off and bin it so no one can 'rescue' it from landfill?!

I'm sure people will tell you it's a death trap waiting to happen, but I'd keep it as a spare.

I still have my old harness (bought second hand from ebay 7/8 years ago) as a spare that still sees intermittent usage.

If there's nothing visually wrong with it keep it.

Simple as that
