The Jurassic Verdict

The Petzl Corax Harness is notable for the fact that it combines maximum adjustability with impressive versatility at a very reasonable price. It is far more adjustable than than most others on the market making it a great alternative if you want reliable performance at a reasonable price. Not only does this harness feature adjustable leg loops, but it also has double buckles on the waist, making it possible to hone in the fit just perfectly while also keeping the belay loop and gear loops perfectly centered. The Petzl Corax Harness also has large gear loops that have ample space for holding the necessary gear for any route.
