Beal Phantom Harness

Whilst it's pitched as a lightweight harness for high level sport climbing, the Phantom isn't actually mega-light by modern standards. But what you get instead is a great all rounder, says Rob Greenwood, with a clean and functional design that makes it ideal for both sport and trad. And the price is nice too.
