Arc’teryx’s 2015 Harnesses Are Made For Real Climbers
Arc’teryx has five new harnesses for 2015, each made specifically for the needs of every climber.
If you’ve ever used an Arc’teryx harness then you know what we’re talking about. Harnesses are what put Arc’teryx on the map some 20 years ago and they continue to be some of their best products.
Tony Richardson is one of Canada’s best alpinists, so when he goes to work at the Arc’teryx Research and Development shop, he brings real-world experience few others do.
What is Warp Strength Technology?
It differs from traditional harness construction in that the load is evenly distributed across the entire width of the harness structure rather than loading a single, narrow strip of webbing in the centre or running edge binding, both of which tend to concentrate the pressure of the harness making them less comfortable.
Warp Strength Technology cradles the body and the load is universally dispersed from edge to edge. This construction method provides a high degree of support and this new generation of harnesses are more comfortable over time and usage than ever before.
The waistbelt and leg loops now include thin reinforcements that help keep the load distributed more evenly across their width and the edges have been softened for a smoother transition.
All resulting in harnesses that are durable, ultra compact, comfortably supple and light weight.
