The Petzl Hirundos climbing harness is a top of the range, clean-looking harness that is perfect for sport climbing and fast and light mountaineering. The Petzl Hirundos climbing harness is very lightweight thanks to the Fuseframe Technology construction, preventing the discomfort of pressure points during use. The harness features no crossing seams, thus preventing friction zones and helping you to feel as unrestricted as possible. The four gear loops have been designed with the quick moving climber in mind, as there are two rigid font loops to easily access, as well as two flexible back loops to work alongside your backpack, without creating unwelcome pressure. Made with Bluesign fabric, this harness helps sustain the planet, as well as your endurance on the rock.
|RECOMMENDED USE||Sports climbing, Alpinism|

Petzl Hirundos review
"This is one of the lighter and more breathable harnesses we tested. It is marketed toward sport climbers but one of our reviewers, Ian Nicholson, uses as it his go-to alpine harness. It is 25 percent lighter than the Black Diamond Alpine Bod and dries fast because it is so well ventilated. It doesn't have adjustable leg loops, but most of our reviews find that feature to be overrated, even for alpine climbing and mountaineering." -Chris McNamara ⋅ Founder and Editor-in-Chief, OutdoorGearLab
