-Frame Construction Technology

High-strength bias tape on the edges of the waistbelt and leg loops provides strength and support. Weight is distributed over the entire area between the tape making the harness very comfortable and extremely well ventilated.

-Women's harnesses

SELENA, LUNA
Petzl now offers two harnesses specifically designed for women. The women’s harnesses are unique in three ways:

  • Distance between waistbelt and leg loops: we've increased the rise in our women's harness for a better fit.

     

    Frame différence Homme/Femme
    Woman                                Man
     

  • Relation between waist size and leg loop size: we've reduced the waist-to-leg loop-size ratio for the women's harnesses.

  • Waistbelt shape: the belt is designed for a better fit by matching the curves of a woman’s back and waist.

Anneau d'assurage vertClearly identified green belay loop
The green color and the marking draw attention to the point where the belay device/descender must be connected. It’s the strongest part of the harness.
Reinforced tie-in points
When climbing, falling and hanging, the tie-in points undergo a great deal of wear from the rope rubbing. These areas are reinforced to increase durability.

 

 

 

 

Boucle DoubleBack

DoubleBack buckles
The DoubleBack buckle is patented by Petzl. The webbing is always threaded through the buckle. Adjustments can be made with one hand. The buckles lock automatically. The buckle can be completely undone if necessary (to put the harness on when wearing skis, for example).
