Stylish and light, these new models have a totally new construction that brings together exclusively sourced new materials. Blended by our designers, these new fabrics create a robust, slim, laminate centred on our incredible new LST (load spread technology) webbing. Shaped across a range of belts it's a combination that provides maximum flexibility but minimum weight and bulk.
Our subtle designs with consistent, classic colours are further enhanced by combining compact, smooth, new Ziplock buckles with a slim new webbing on waist and legs. Fully featured, with men's and women's models, complementary new racking systems, new haul loops, ice racks and a super durable finish, there's a model for everyone.
The range is split into three complementary groups, with three levels of features to choose from depending on your requirements, with the Eclipse men's and Aurora women's being our the most fully featured trad climbing models.
Lightweight and superbly shaped, the stylish Aurora is designed to provide a performance orientated option on big days out. Reassuringly secure and underwritten by our 'Load Spread Technology' belt and leg loops, the adaptable Aurora has a flexible, figure hugging fit for consistent comfort. Smooth Ziplock buckles are easily adjusted on legs and waist and coming with five moulded gear loops just where they're needed it racks superbly - and has a neat haul loop too.
A genuine all rounder the Aurora is a great option for active, action women across a wide range of disciplines. Trad, multi-pitch, winter, alpine sport.
