The new Speedfit adjustment system allows you to adjust the width of the leg loops within seconds: simply slide the Speedfit buckle along the load-bearing webbing until the harness fits perfectly. This novel adjustment system solves the tiresome problem of ends of webbing that stick out and get in the way. Thanks to the Mammut® two-part webbing technology, the Ophir Speedfit also offers optimal comfort, extremely high breathability and maximum freedom of movement for climbing in the gym, out on the rocks or in alpine terrain.

Besides the rope, a harness is one of the most important items of equipment for a climber. Modern climbing harnesses, like the latest generation of Mammut harnesses, guarantee both comfort and safety. The two measurements according to which each model of harness provides an individually tailored solution are, on the one hand, the lightest possible weight combined with maximum freedom of movement and, on the other, a comfortable feeling when hanging. Every different situation in which a harness is used places specific demands on it – for instance, an alpinist or an ice climber will have different requirements for their harness compared with, for example, an occasional climber. Mammut's extensive range includes precisely the right climbing harness for every vertical pursuit.
The EN-standard 12277 differentiates between four different construction shapes of harnesses: combi-harness (Type A), childrens combi-harness (Type B), waist harness (Type C) and chest harness (Type D). Every type of harness has a different role and function; you choose a suitable model depending on the purpose for use and personal preferrance.
TYP C - WAIST HARNESS
The waist harness is, and for very good reason, the most widely used model. It is suitable for nearly every discipline of mountain sport, especially for difficult climbing on rock, ice and on alpine routes. 80% of the fall load is transferred through the leg loops onto the thighs, while the belt around the waist protects the spinal column. Since the waist harness is built around the bodies centre of gravity, the pull of the rope on long pitches is less annoying than other harness types. It also has great freedom of movement and a comfortable hanging position.
INNOVATION TYPE – CLIMBING SHORTS
Although the Mammut Realization Shorts officially come under type C – i.e a hip belt, and have been tested as such - this innovative product is far more than a traditional climbing harness. For the first time, the Mammut Realization Shorts combine the load-bearing structure of a climbing harness with a pair of shorts. The result is a whole new level of comfort, combined with great freedom of movement and a unique look. The Realization Shorts are ideal for indoor climbing in the gym or out on the cliffs and are helping Mammut Pro Team athletes and other climbers to achieve top performance on the rocks.
TYP D - CHEST HARNESS
In a few situations it is recommended to complete the waist harness with the additional use of a chest harness. Children up to the age of about 12 years old could slide out of a waist harness, which can be prevented through use of a chest harness; As they are often a bit top-heavy as well, it can help to keep them upright. People with a large hip circumference can also benefit from a chest harness to avoid slipping out of a harness.A chest harness should never be used by itself, since hanging free can lead to death by asphyxiation within a short space of time. To connect the waist and chest harness, usually an additional sling is used.
TYP A - COMBI-HARNESS OR FULL-BODY HARNESS
The combi-harness has the same safety advantages for the demands of special situations as the combination of a waist and chest harness, but with less hanging comfort; however it is lighter and you don’t need any other equipment to put it on, and due to it’s large adjustable area, it can be used for everything. It is especially good for Via Ferratas, where falls seldom pose a threat, but can often happen unexpectedly. Combi harnesses are also practical to rent out.
TYP B - CHILDREN’S COMBI OR FULL-BODY HARNESS
«Small body harnesses» are, according to standard, permitted for up to 40 kilograms body weight; due to this, narrower webbing can be used, which saves weight for the young mountaineer and improves comfort. The fully-adjustable harness has been especially designed to fit a childs anatomy and grows with the child. The Mammut childrens combi harness also has padded leg loops for more comfort and fun when climbing or mountaineering.

It doesn’t matter which model you decide to buy: a Mammut harness gives you guaranteed protection. However for long-term satisfaction, it’s important to choose both the right model, and get a good fit. Take your time when you are buying a harness.
AREAS OF USE
Choose the harness appropriate for the type of climbing you wish to do. Set your priorities right. For example, comfortable padding on high alpine tours where you practically never hang in the harness is unnecessary and can often be quite annoying, especially when walking.
If hanging free is a possibility or a necessity for the type of climbing you partake in, then you should be able to judge the fit and comfort by doing a hang test, which is usually offered in climbing specialty shops.
Read the instructions before you use the harness and make yourself familiar with the buckles and other features of the harness
Of course the size can also vary depending on the model of the harness. Thus you should always try the harness on; preferably with the clothing you will be wearing under the harness. A flat hand should fit snugly between the thigh and the leg loops.
