  • The waist strap is a little short so you may have to undo the whole thing to fit it over your waist.

Expert Reviews

  • The leg loops don’t taper as much as other options, and reduce the comfort.
  • Despite having four ice clipper loops, they aren’t as functional as other options.
  • The leg loops can dig into your legs while hanging.


The Arc’Teryx FL-355 Harness for women is a mobile, spacious, and functional option that is well-suited for those climbers who need ample storage and want a highly-flexible choice. Despite the waist strap being a little short and the leg loops reportedly digging into your legs during prolonged hanging, this harness is very nice for climbers who want to bring a substantial amount of gear without compromising their range of motion.
