Hi Dixon, There's no exact answer but four gear loops is enough for most climbing days. However, you may find it more convenient to buy a harness with more loops, especially if you are climbing a long multipitch route and need lots of different gear. Another option you could consider is a padded gear sling. These are particularly useful on Aid routes and can be a great way for your second to bring up all the gear you don't need for that pitch. Hope that helps, Dave

Hi Elly, Minimalist and weight saving is the key! as you will very rarely (if ever) be hanging from your harness, comfort shouldn't be high up on you priorities. Its also pretty important to have adjustable leg loops as you may have to get crampon clad ski boots through them There are several harnesses that have been designed specifically with ski touring in mind that you could take a look at including the very popular Black Diamond Couloir harness. Hope that helps, Dave
