This week's POTW is the updated Hirundos harness from Petzl. Petzl has improved on the Hirundos design over the years and has produced an amazingly lightweight and minimal harness for sport or alpine climbing. The Hirundos only weighs 280g for the small making it perfect for your hardest redpoints, offering an excellent range of motion. It features Fuseframe technology which uses thermo-formed foam to create a streamlined design which still offers comfort with improved weight distribution. This also means the harness dries quickly and is very breathable so perfect for big alpine climbing missions. Four gear loops, 2 ridged front ones and two flexible rear ones, allow plenty of space for quickdraws or a climbing rack. Aluminium DoubleBack HD buckles mean altering the harness is simple and safe.
