One harness to rule them all - the Arc'Teyx AR-395a is a superbly well engineered all-rounder. With all the features you need, and none you don't the AR-395a is ideally suited to trad, sport, ice and alpine use.

The AR-395a has a few innovations over previous Arc'Teryx harnesses; 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 greater comfort. Larger gear loops and the addition of a rear webbing gear loop make racking and organising your gear simpler.


Warp Strength Technology™ Advantage: WST™ 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.


WST™ (Warp Strength Technology) means load is evenly supported across entire harness structure

Packs small, Fitting is great

Packs small, Fitting is great as wraps around you waist nicely. I got confused by the sizing as my waist which is 26-28 inches fell between xs and s so ended up buying the wrong harness in the end when i bought the s

Very light, comfy, with all

Very light, comfy, with all the gear loops you could need. Excellent all round piece of kit, after many years of using a petzl corax its nice to have something lighter and less bulky

Excellent Harness, already previously owned

Excellent Harness, already previously owned it but in Small and it was slightly to big, so bought the XS (I am a 28" waist). Best price i've seen anywhere also!

Seems very good and with

Seems very good and with adaptations may be a better trad harness than the DMM. BUT ....It is only after you have bought it that you discover it has a recommended life of only 3 years in normal use and only one year if used intensively.
