Arcteryx S240 WARP Harness #1
Outside Ltd, Aug 2009
OFFER NOW CLOSED
In weaving terms WARP is the set of horizontal yarns through which something called WEFT is woven vertically. In making clothing the WEFT always had to be less strong than the WARP because it didn't have to be stretched. This applies to webbing manufacture as well with the horizontal WARP being the main load bearing part of the material and the WEFT holding this together vertically. The S240 has had the WEFT removed from its webbing.
What does this elimination of the WEFT in the S240 harness mean?
What are the harnesses other features?
