Aspiring harness features

  • All Aspiring harnesses have attachment points which are at or above the level of the waist belt, to prevent inverting and falling head-first in a fall (see Harness Use).
  • Aspiring harnesses are designed with the load-bearing stitching on the inside of the webbing, so that it is not exposed to damage on the outside of the harness.
  • All gear loops are strong enough to hold well in excess of body weight, to guard against an attachment mistake (the actual strength varies with the harness model).
  • Each harness has a strength well in excess of the European standard requirement of 15 kN. Minimum strengths range from 18 – 28 kN, depending on the harness.
