The Jurassic Verdict

The Petzl Corax is notable in that it combines maximum adjustability with impressive versatility. It is also very comfortable and at a very reasonable price. This harness has double buckles on the waist, making it easy to adjust the fit perfectly. Whilst still keeping the belay loop and gear loops perfectly centered. The Petzl Corax also has large gear loops that have ample space for holding the necessary gear for any route. If adjustability, versatility, and low price are important factors to you when selecting a harness. Then be sure to give the Petzl Corax a look.
