High on the East Ridge of the Kuglhornet, Narvik region, Norway., 4 kbThe Orion: A very supportive and comfortable all-round harness, but does it need more racking space for big trad routes?

In reply to UKC Gear: I have been looking for a harness that has 4 gear loops and 1 extra gear loop at the back for prusik,knife etc, ice clippers, and without adjustable leg loops. This combination makes a all round all discipline harness. Does it exist no. But I keep hoping.

*Ryx M270 with DIY backloops...
In reply to cyberpunk: The Cyrus is the Orion's sister (brother?) harness with non adjustable leg loops. http://www.edelrid.de/en/Edelrid/Sports/Harnesses/Cyrus-oasis.html

Four gear racks and the same tab at the back as the Orion I think -that takes a krab that you can clip your extras into. Worth a look?

In reply to HeMa: Are they mad making a alpine mixed harness with 2 gear loops.
In reply to cyberpunk: The M270 is designed for ice and mixed climbing according to Arcteryx - http://www.ukclimbing.com/gear/review.php?id=5228 but plenty of hardcore alpinists use the Petzl hirundos for alpine and I think that only has two racks I think.

But the Edelrid one like the Orion but with fixed legs has to be worth a look and surely there are plenty of four or five loop fixed leg harnesses from BD aren't there? Or the Wild Country Boost?
