Easy to put on and easy-to-adjust adjustment buckles in front at the waist eliminate the contortionist act to get comfortable.

Built-in retainers help keep straps adjusted between uses and out of the way when you work.

Petzl—a name tree dudes can trust. Avao adjustable, versatile harnesses are ready to work the way you work.

• Wide, semi-rigid waistbelt and leg loops give excellent support. They are contoured and lined with breathable perforated foam for maximum comfort when suspended
• Waistbelt equipped with self-locking DoubleBack buckles for quick and easy adjustment
• Available with leg loops equipped with self- locking DoubleBack buckles or FAST automatic buckles for quick and easy opening and closing without the need to readjust them, even while wearing gloves
• A ventral attachment point that distributes the load between the waistbelt and the leg loops during suspended work

great starter harness Review by Brian R
This is a great starter harness since it offers great caritool capability and will keep things simple for someone looking for a harness for general climbing. I've had it for about 3 years and it's still very usable and safe. You can fit a lot of gear on the harness itself and then theres the capability to carry 2 large caritools and 2 small caritools. The biggest issue is that it pinches the dickens out of my hips. It's literally been so bad that I've had to reposition myself several times while branchwalking or any side loading the harness. It's actually gotten to the point where my hips have lost some feeling so that's what happens when you get a harness that only has a single D-ring for vertical stability.Overall this harness is a great balance between price, versatility, and simplicity. It's been a great harness for the last 3 years and will be my backup harness for a while, but the pinching really is getting too much. (Posted on 9/22/2014)
