BlueWater Icon - Sport Harness Review

BlueWater Icon

,

$50, 11 ounces

Overall grade: B

Summary:

Slim and trim is the modus operandi for the Icon, which was a favorite for its mobility. That mobility comes at a price, however, as the Icon was only middle of the road in comfort. A bit more surface area in the rear and a more anatomic cut would up this rig’s comfort without adding much weight. While the Icon was the only

harness

in the review to sport just two gear loops, it had sufficient racking for most sport routes. Molded or woven loops would be a welcome addition.
