Outstanding Design

I recently picked up a Choucas Pro harness for a mountaineering trip to the North Cascades.

This is the perfect harness for glacier travel. It's super light and extremely quick and easy to take on and off. I wondered if the leg loop attachments would be "fiddly" but found them to be easy and secure. Easy to do, even with gloves.

I initially ordered a size too large based on the size guide, but once I sized down, it was perfect.

This will be my new go-to harness for ski mountaineering this winter!

Paradigm shift

The harness offers unexpectedly high levels of comfort despite absolute minimal bulk against the body – it’s like it’s not there. Zero comfort issues on steep rappels or hangs, even when wearing light summer clothing.
To date I’ve only carried a medium-sized rack on it. Cordage used for gear loops isn’t as convenient as bulkier options but it’s certainly an acceptable compromise given its low bulk and weight.
The elastic cord system used to support the leg-loops at the rear is rustic but it absolutely works! Zero slippage, easy to adjust, easy to fasten and dead simple if it ever needs repairing. Superior to a number of complex designs.
It takes four ice clippers but two sit over the frontmost gear loops. Not perfect but surprisingly not a deal-breaker either.
No durability issues to date.
Sizing leans towards cold-weather clothing. Leg loops are on the large size if the waist is snugged to minimum. It would certainly work for a -30C clothing system but once again, is comfortable with shorts and a tee.
The harness is much more versatile than expected. I strongly recommend it to those doing longer approaches and/or those who appreciate the stark functionality of its minimalist design.

Excellent Alpine / Ice Climbing harness

A lot more comfortable than its weight would suggest, even for free hanging rappels. Gear loops are big enough to carry your standard rack for the day.

Unbelievably light and small but with a punch. The detachable leg loops make this harness an excellent backcountry skiing harness for on / off applications.

To make it a 5+ star rating, run a cord between the back 2 gear loop for added gear storage and putting your cow’s tail out of the way.

Based on how comfortable this harness is, I would be willing to try its little brother the Addax for multipitch rock and sport climbing.

I am psyched to have discovered BlueIce line of gear. I also have a Warthog 45 et a Dragonfly 18. Couldn’t be more satisfied!

Unbeatable harness!

Perfect tool for alpine rock & ice climbs and touringski in wild environment.
It's really light, complete and comfortable. A "must have" for pro and expert.
