The Petzl Altitude Harness is an ultra-lightweight alpine harness with integrated gear loops, designed for skiing and glacier travel.
Built with WIREFRAME technology in an ultra-lightweight (150g) design, the Petzl Altitude Harness is easy to wear, even with skis or crampons standing. The 'doubleback light' buckle and tightening strap are easy to operate, even with gloves, and the harness is minimal bulk when packed in its bag. Another cool feature is that the four equipment loops are totally integrated into the harness to minimise interference when wearing a backpack accompanied with two gear loops.
