I thought this would just be a sport climbing harness for me but once I started using it I began to really like its simplicity and fit. It became my favorite harness and I started to wear it all of the time. Amazing how comfortable it is being so light. At this point I have been through a handful of hanging belays with this harness and it was surprisingly not too bad. I have used this harness for mountaineering, ski-mountaineering, alpine climbing, multi-pitch trad and sport climbing and been happy with it in all situations. With four gear loops there is enough room for a fat rack at the creek. Awesome as an alpine harness because of it is lightweight and the fact that it fits so well that you hardly know it is on when hiking or scrambling. It lacks adjustable leg loops which would make it a better alpine harness but that would only add weight. I have had no problem getting this harness on over ski boots. A ski boots with crampons would be tight but you could probably do it carefully. Overall I am super impressed with the versatility of this 'sport climbing' harness.
