Description:
Some of you may have noticed or heard that I use a homemade harness.

With spring touring season coming up what you probably want is a harness which is light, comfortable, and can be put on without taking your feet off the ground (ie - you can leave your skis on). Now's your chance to make your own!

Of course making your own harness is not for the faint of heart - now not only do you have to trust your anchor and partners, but your harness-making skills. This decision is, of course, up to you - but if you're keen to give making your own harness a try I'm keen to help you out, and will even give you a suggested design (see wiki page). My finished product weighs just under 200g and I've used it for touring, toproping, rappelling, and the occasional easy alpine lead (but it has still never taken a "real" fall).
