DMM Super Couloir Harness£45, added Mar/2010, see all DMM news & reviews
announcement by DMM
Need a harness for winter sports? You've come to the right place.
The Super Couloir has been designed in conjuction with our sponsored climbers to be functional and lightweight. It's designed for ice climbing, alpine climbing, mountaineering and ski touring; you could even use it for rock climbing but we'd recommend something a bit more padded.
It's light, easy to put on (even when wearing crampons, skis or snowshoes) and has plenty of racking for gear and screws. The 'diaper' pull through leg loops design allows the user to put it on without undoing any cumbersome buckles (this can be especially difficult with gloves on) or standing into the legloops.
By using 'supported' 44mm webbing on the belt, the Super Couloir harness has dispensed with the need for conventional padding and remains low profile to fit comfortably under a pack.
Let's face it, who needs a complex, fully padded harness when you want to travel light? The Super Couloir is a firm favourite with our testers for all things wintery.
- Low weight and minimal pack size. 323g to 360g
- Twin hypalon ice screw racking strips.
- Five gear loops.
- 20mm belay loop rated at 25kn.
- 44mm minimally padded waist for lightweight comfort.
