/ Has anyone used a Camp Air CR Harness?
I had considered the Petzl Hirundos, but with the fixed leg loops, I think that my legs are too large for a medium, yet my waist is too small for a large.
Camp air cr - great basic harness used summer and winter - v light and relatively cheap - seems pretty robust
Thanks for that. How have you found the sizing?
Is it comfortable enough for "hanging" (no place to stand) belays?
The UK model has 4 plastic covered gear loops, whereas on the US model the two rear gear loops are the more flimsy fabric only loops.
I have 2 harnesses
when i'm skinny (12 stone) i'm a medium
when i'm fat (131/2) i'm a large
essentially its fine i'm just very variable
I wouldn't big wall in it - no worse than the last 3 standard harnesses i have owned
I have one and I f*cking love it. Super light, mine has 4 real gear loops, comfortable (almost as comfy as my regular rock harness), ice clipper slots. Can't recommend it highly enough for ice/alpine/winter use. It's not great as a summer harness because it's not as comfortable for hanging in, but it's still pretty decent. Weighs almost as much as a minimalist harness like the BD couloir but is actually serviceable as a harness.
The mesh outer layer is prone to getting "runs" in it, but it's just cosmetic. As far as sizing goes, I wear a medium in every harness I've tried, including the Air.
Go buy one.
