Looking for a good trad harness. Been using the DMM Renegade for a few years now. Like the look of the 2.0 with the slide lock. Not really a fan of the double back. Looked at a few reviews but can't decide between arcteryx, dmm, petzl and black diamond. The 7 gear loops are quite good on the renegade but never used less gear loops. Advice please? Thinking of buying a trad only harness and sport only harness instead of an all rounder.
In reply to stickonthewall: A top tip from a climbing partner of mine:
Adding two ice screw clippers to a standard 4 gear loop harness works really well for trad. You can rack 4-5 short extenders on each clipper which means you are then not overly constrained by just having the 4 loops. You can do this with the majority of modern all-round harness.
As for which harness to recommend, my only advice is try lots on. If you are a fairly standard body-shape then you shouldn't have any shortage of options. Equally if you are a 'non-standard' body-shape, like I am, then you will struggle.
