The Creed is lightweight at just 380g and features a number of interesting elements. Creed utilizes a unique Triad System construction, a sewing technique that allows the kettle webbing of the leg loops to lie flat against the body for enhanced load distribution, and thus comfort. The outer material is also treated using a heat-sealed tri-lamination process, which again permits better load distribution imbuing the Creed with weight saving benefits as well as maximized movement.
To round off the package the Creed makes use of DuPont's Hytrel membrane to increase longetivity and abrasion resistance. In terms of fit you get a highly adjustable package thanks to Edelrid's E-Turn buckling system that allows for optimal comfort along with four asymmetrical gear loops and fully adjustable leg loops.
Sponsored climber Robbie Phillips offered up the following appraisal: "Light, durable and comfortable! The Creed harness is everything you could want. Its solid fabrication and lightly built design enables freedom of movement during top-end performances as well as proving to be long lasting when put to the test. Whether you are looking for a performance enhancer or simply a resilient harness you won't have to replace the Creed anytime soon. A professional piece of climbing equipment that I would recommend for any climber."
