A secure fit with full-body harnesses
Glaciers, climbing parks, working at height: A full-body harness provides more comfort and safety than a sit harness. Further advantages and applications of full-body harnesses are explained below.
Design and purpose of a full-body harness
A full-body harness is a combination of a sit harness and a chest harness, making it the most secure fitting and most comfortable type of climbing harness. The fixed connection of all the loops also makes it the safest type of climbing harness.
In addition to use on glacier tours and in climbing parks (including as rentals), full-body harnesses are ideal for working at dangerous heights. They are also ideal for kids and beginners because they can be adjusted very accurately.
Increased safety with full-body harnesses
Because the tie-in point of a full-body harness is higher than on a sit harness the risk of turning and falling head first is reduced. Full-body harnesses are also ideal when carrying a backpack, because the weight being carried is also more likely to turn you in the air.
