Arc'teryx SL-340 Harness
As Arc'teryx's lightest harness, the SL-340 is designed for men and women sport climbers seeking flexibility, agility, and comfort, all within the highest quality construction possible. It's been stripped down to the bare essentials to achieve a weight of 340 g - 60 g less than your average can of tinned food. You have just two gear loops on which to rack your quickdraws, which are large enough to carry up to 16 quickdraws, but to prevent it getting in your way, your belay device can be attached to a rear haul loop where it won't be an annoyance. The leg loops are elasticated to shed the weight of metal buckles, and the one self-locking buckle on the waist is light and secures your fit in one easy movement.
As far as comfort goes, the SL-340 features a hard-wearing Burly™ Double Weave that absorbs little to no moisture, dries quickly and is soft against skin. No one likes climbing in a sweaty harness, so best to let your skin and clothes dry themselves, after you take the harness off.
If you're looking for the highest quality and durability available because you're going to be doing a lot of projecting and falling, the SL-340 is as nimble yet hard-wearing as they come.

This is my second arc’teryx harness and I really like it. I think once you have one of these you will never go back to an alternative brand. Very light weight and very comfortable. They are also quite hard wearing. My first first one of these is still in great condition after 6 years of use. Highly recommended.
