Harness for climbing
A climbing harness is an item of climbing equipment for rock-climbing, abseling, or other activities requiring the use of ropes to provide access or safety such as industrial rope access, working at heights, etc. A harness secures a person to a rope or an anchor point. In its simplest form, a harness can be made from a length of rope or a nylon webbing tied round the waist. More sophisticated harnesses exist in many patterns, designed to give greater comfort and security, and more options for carrying equipment. While harnesses can be improvised, it is more common to use commercially produced harnesses, which often include padding and amenities such as gear loops. More expensive harnesses are not necessarily better, as different types of harnesses are better suited to different body types and activities, regardless of price range.
Most of the harnesses is generally made from webbing. This webbing is often nylon webbing as polyester webbing doesn’t hold triglides and d-rings as well, and it’s easier to untie nylon webbing The webbing is often also tubular webbing, instead of flat webbing.
