Gear Review: Climbing harness.
Product: Ophira 3 Slide Climbing Harness – Women.
I do not know where to begin with this harness, because I am absolutely in love with it. I am very picky with regards to legs because I cannot stand to feel them compressed. If I find an item that makes my thighs hold their breath, an “x” mark is put next to it. I have wide thighs and I always struggle to find items of this nature that do not suffocate my extremities. For some reason, the day I was looking for climbing harnesses all of the ones I tried on had fitted elastic leg loops. The latter is a feature that pleases many because it gives you freedom of movement, but for me it did the opposite. It probably was completely psychological, but I knew it was not going to work for me from the get go. I was giving up hope until I found Mammut’s Ophira harness. The fact that this harness has adjustable leg loops was a definite plus for me. I did not look any further and settled with it. Although not as light as the more advanced in tech, I am satisfied with my purchase and completely recommend it for people with thigh sensitivity (if that is even a thing).
