The Petzl Aquila is a top-end harness aimed at the user who wants the technical specification and know-how available in the lightweight Hirundos, but requires more versatility and functionality for a range of climbing disciplines.
With adjustable leg loops, the Aquila is ideal for both technical rock and alpine climbing. The FUSEFRAME Technology construction produces a slim, clean, lightweight design that offers excellent comfort. FUSEFRAME Technology is a construction process whereby the foam padding in the waist belt is integrated “as one” with the webbing. This is achieved as the foam is thermo-formed to create channels into which the webbing is placed, allowing for an incredibly low profile. The Aquila is also equipped with four gear loops to allow for optimal organisation of equipment, and has DoubleBack HD tightening buckles for quick adjustment of waist belt and leg loops.
Clean design of the FUSEFRAME Technology construction offers excellent weight distribution and minimises pressure points
Thermo-formed foam allows incorporation of strength elements into the layer of foam and thus avoids having pressure points on the yokes
Compact, lightweight waist belt in thin foam
No compression points or friction zones on the waistbelt because there are no crossing seams
Fabric fused with the foam for better weight-bearing over the entire harness
Very flexible leg loop attachment bridges for more comfortable walking and climbing
Four gear loops: two high-capacity rigid ones in front for quick and easy access to equipment and two flexible ones in the rear to avoid creating pressure points with a backpack
