Edelrid Loopo Lite
The Edelrid Loopo Lite uses an ultra-strong and lightweight Dyneema® frame construction to make a reliable harness that will fit into your pocket. Weighing just 80g, the Edelrid Loopo Lite is one of the lightest alpine/ski-touring harnesses available on the market, thanks to its Dyneema®, "The World's Strongest Fiber", load-bearing edge that maximises strength and minimises weight. Shove it into one of your pockets or under a jacket, fit it easily into overstuffed bags, or simply wear it all day without ever noticing it's there, the Loopo Lite is extremely compact and designed for the lightest alpine missions.
Light Frame Construction
Constructed with a Dyneema® load-bearing edge binding construction to allow for very lightweight harnesses. The edge binding runs throughout the entire harness, so that it safely carries the load around both the hips and the legs. Weight is proportionately distributed from the webbing to the padding. Combined with perforated foam and mesh fabrics, it's possible to make extremely lightweight harnesses with exceptional breathability. Used in harnesses used for ultra-light sport climbing and ski-touring.
Trademarked as “The World’s Strongest Fiber”, Dyneema® is, on a weight-for-weight basis, 15 times stronger than steel and 40 percent stronger than aramid fibers like kevlar. It is a gel-spun, multi-filament fiber that is created from ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (a common chemical combination used in many plastics) with qualities useful in outdoor environments: fire-resistance, self-extinguishing, the ability to withstand extreme hot and cold temperatures, and it can also float on water. Extreme strength fiber used to make the toughest gear.
