- Very nice trad harness
The summit is well made, comfortable, relatively light, moves well and is competitively priced. It's a good looking rig too!
But the best feature of this harness is the generous racking space thanks to the seven well placed gear loops (they don't overlap like on most of the other "big-wall" harnesses.) I don't understand why more manufacturers haven't gone this route, as the concept is great for organization more so than volume.
I like the four buckle design, though i have found the hip "wings" to slide down, out from under the belt. Not uncomfortable, but could be designed better. Also, the leg loop buckles slip a bit requiring a back-up knot. Were it not for these two minor issues, it would be a solid 5 star harness.
