The Blue Ice Choucas III Harness
The Blue Ice Choucas is the lightest harness you can put on without having to step into leg loops, a big bonus if you have big boots and crampons (or even skis) already on. It's pretty minimal, no bulky padding (for its intended use you'd be wearing layers and not likely to be hanging anyway) but you do get a belay loop, 2 gear loops, 2 ice clipper slots and 2 ice screw retainers positioned on the leg loops. This clever little touch stops your screws from swinging about while skiing or walking.
100% Dyneema webbing keeps the weight right down to a svelte 170g. The ultimate harness for classic or ski mountaineering.
Please Note - This is the mk3 version of the Blue Ice Choucas, and features a traditional buckle. This rectifies the self-loosening effect of the older model.
