Hi i'm colin power the climbing category director black diamond and this is our new vision harness this is the lightest. Weight full functioning harness on the market 224 grams designed really for alpine climbing for gear loops low-profile gear loops for. Ice buffer slots a super thin. Low-profile belay loop fixed legs it's super packable and really lightweight. Like i said 224 grams so having a. Lightweight harness is one thing but having it really packable is another so it takes up less space in your pack not exactly on the comfortable side of the. Scale though a lot of the guys have been wearing this thing sport climbing and it's like totally fine really really minimalistic 149 95 available in january. Of 2018. Pretty sick it's pretty sick what we did. With this was we took our kinetic core construction from our zeno center chaos. And our ethos this is really the guts of that we stripped all the shell and everything off and left the the bare bones basically the skeleton so this is. Vector and fiber super strong doesn't absorb water really packable really lightweight made the width balance. Between comfort and pack ability way more comfortable than you would think but it's alpine rig it's designed for alpine climbing no adjustment on the leg loops you know the only adjustment is the waist belt to get it on and off and this belay loop is super cool it's. Basically one strand of super high-tech. Fiber that's wrapped around like a doughnut and then wrapped in this casing. So it's not like that most belay loops are a piece of webbing that's folded into looping and bar tack so that's how we could get this to be so strong and so small and it's way way way over built we. Could even make it smaller and it would still meet all the requirements but it would get to the point you'd be freaked out we actually played with the diameter. Of this tubing a lot because our other. Have thicker but then it's it's not as. Packable we found this to be a good balance between functionality and pack ability if you put nothing on it then it's really hard especially with gloves and jackets and stuff in packs some ski mountaineer is gonna wear this you go to the tetons you want a real harness that's really light in packs well 224 grams that's insane it's only 5 grams i. Think heavier than the kawar which i would classify as not a full functioning harness you know yes you can wrap it and. Stuff like that but you know it's got the diaper legs and no gear loop you know that kind of thing so this is like got everything you need on it called the. Vision because we thought that these climbers that are looking at these crazy north faces in the mountains like they have the vision to link up these ice smears and stuff this is the kind of harness that they want to wear sadly we. Made it for kyle dempster that's who we made it for and he had our first prototype when we lost him last fall you. Know we made it for those guys for kyle haydon kennedy urban novak you know. Marko appraisal like these kind of dudes you know that are really pushing it but of course anyone can use it for anything they want but we really wanted to make it for those kind of guys that are pushing the limits in the mountains.
