The Petzl Hirundos Harness is a top of the range, lightweight and comfortable, performance climbing harness, designed for sport and alpine climbing.
Fuseframe technology has resulted in a sleek, slim design and has enabled the Hirundos to be lightweight whilst retaining comfort of a padded waistbelt. The tie-in points are durable and have improved resistance to rope friction and the leg loops are super flexible, allowing you to step high in comfort and with ease.
The Hirundos has 4 good sized gear loops. The front pair are stiffened for quick and easy access to your gear and the back pair slope towards the front keeping everything in closer reach. The back pair of gear loops are also flexible to reduce any pressure points if a rucksack is being worn.
Other features include the new and updated buckles which provide a quick and easy way of adjusting your harness, Dyneema tie in points for strength and resistance to abrasion, two integrated Petzl Caritool holder slots, a rear loop for hauling, and two rear elastics on detachable buckles to avoid crossing leg loops when donning the harness.
This is an ideal harness for most modern climbers. Not the best choice for beginners gnarling their way up chimneys or for the high-wear environment of big walls but for cragging, lightweight alpinism and mountain rock this harness is just superb.
