The name speaks for itself. Black Diamond developed the Couloir climbing harness specifically for the needs of climbers and ski mountaineers, who need to belay in steep snow flanks, go abseiling in short passages, or cross glacier parts on tour. The extremely light climbing harness can be worn perfectly over hardshell pans or ski suits and the speed buckles allow you to put on or take off the harness, even if you are wearing crampons or skis. The water repellent harness is very compact thus easy to stow away and finds its place even in ski touring or climbing backpacks. Two gear loops made from light and stable belts have four additional ice clip holders. For an even better fixation of the ice screws, the Couloirs has two additional loops on the leg loops. The belay loop on the Black Diamond climbing harness for ski mountaineering is of course fully supporting. The slim design and light weight let you almost forget you are wearing a harness. For all skiers, who include extreme Couloirs to their Freeride-Terrain, the Black Diamond Couloir is first choice.
