The Metolius Safe Tech Deluxe Harness is one of the best fitting, safest harnesses in the world. The Deluxe is a beefed up version of the All-Around and is designed to lend maximum support to the lower back while simultaneously providing unparalleled freedom of movement. Hard on the outside, soft on the inside with a tough 1050d Ballistics outer layer and a polyethylene foam with brushed inner lining, it is ideal for Big Wall and long Trad, or Sport routes where comfort is paramount. Metolius' sophisticated adjustment system lets you fine tune the fit by adjusting the riser length; that is the distance between the waist belt and the leg loops. Women generally have much longer riser lengths than Men, so this is particularly important for sizing Women's harnesses. This harness also boasts the world's toughest and longest wearing tie-in points. Every component, including leg risers, the gear, haul, and belay loops are engineered to withstand a load of at least 2250 lbf (10kN) that's FULL strength and typically the max impact force rating of a modern climbing rope. Due to an alarming number of accidents involving the misuse of harnesses and/or the failure of harness components, Metolius designed their Safe Tech Series with every possible margin of safety in mind. The structural systems of the Safe Tech harness have been made as redundant and error-proof as possible, e. g., the waist buckle even shows the word DANGER if not correctly double-passed.
