    The Petzl Altitude Harness is an ultra lightweight mountaineering or ski touring harness perfect for fast and light adventures. Considering the tiny weight of the Altitude it's got a surprising number of features. Wireframe technology means the waist and leg loops are wider than you'd expect, plus there are 4 integrated gear loops - note these are literally loops of fabric, you certainly couldn't get more than a couple of carabiners on each one - but that's not the point of this harness. The leg loops can be unbuckled allowing the harness to be donned with skis or crampons on and each leg loop has a keeper with siliconised interior to secure an ice screw so it's not flapping around off a gear loop - a great little innovation for a lightweight harness and perfect if you're skiing with ice screws.

    Petzl Altitude Harness Review
    Verified Buyer

    I purchased the Petzl Altitude harness as a lightweight harness for ski-touring. I have not used the harness for ski-touring yet, but the weight, small pack-size, and buckle release leg loops meet my requirements.

    With a 25 waist, the S-M size is only just small enough for me, even with bulkier ski-touring clothes.Anyone with a smaller waist could find that the waist band is cinched up so tightly that the belay loop sits to the wrong side of the waist buckle - the instructions indicate that this is unsafe (presumably will cause the buckle to release). I have previously tried the Black Diamond Couloir and Mammut Zephir Altitude harnesses and the smallest sizes for these harnesses are far too big for me. A significant part of my rating is attributable to sizing, given that the Petzl Altitude currently seems to be the only lightweight ski touring harness suitable for smaller people.
