Mammut Togira Light
“Hands down, the Togira is the best harness I’ve tested out of the 15 or so I’ve donned in the last three years,” said one Climbing editor and frequent tester. “It’s also the first women’sspecific harness that actually won unanimous praise from lady testers, because the waist belt and leg loops stayed high in just the right places.” Testers also liked the molded gear loops, which made it easy to organize and eyeball gear even in extremis. “I was able to carry a full rack plus some doubles in cams, 10 to 12 draws, belay device, anchor tether, and a few lockers, with room to spare,” said one tester after a sevenpitch route. The Togira (and the similar Togir, the men’s model) is designed to be lightweight (12 oz.) and packable enough for alpine ascents, with two attachment points for ice screw holders and easily detachable leg-loop risers. The leg loops are elasticized but non-adjustable, and the harness is built fairly slim, so size up if you plan to wear many layers.
