Petzl Hirundos Harness Reviews:


Got one of these after being sick of the over-hyped arc'teryx harnesses, that have always 'roped' out and rolled up on me. So far I have used this harness on 20 pitch alpine rock climbs, single pitch trad and super steep sport and I love it. Super comfy, you barely notice it is there. Despite the thin nature and slight padding, comfort is not an issue. I am a slim 6'2" tall, 180lbs, and wear a medium. 33" waist but the medium is cranked down pretty far, however it is tight on my legs, but slowly stretching. The only other slight dislike is the second set of gear loops are a bit too far back, and the front ones just a tad small - for sport climbing this is not an issue, but trad multi-pitch I find it a little hard to see the back gear loops. Not disappointed in this harness at all, super psyched on it!

First off, I knew this harness was lightweight when I ordered it, but I had no idea it was that light. It also packs down pretty small, which is great for stuffing in my pack. Very little padding on the harness, but it's not really needed. It's well made, well designed and looks cool.
Sizing: I have average size legs and the leg loops fit great. They'd be fine even if my legs were a little bigger. I have a 35" waist and bought the Large size. The 37" limit is accurate. I'd prefer to have a little bigger size, as the gear loops are back a little far on the left side because of the waist adjustment, but it's manageable.

The Hirundos harness from Petzl is one of my all-time favorite harnesses (perhaps tied with it's older brother, the Sama). This featherweight, sport harness is the way to go if you're looking to shave some ounces off of your gear. Because of it's low profile design, I hardly notice I'm even wearing a harness when I'm climbing. It's the least intrusive harness I've ever worn.
The only real con I can see is the comfort. It's not uncomfortable, but it's not quite as padded as the Sama. If I'm projecting a route and expect to be hanging for a while, I'll reach for the Sama. If I'm ready for the redpoint, it's the Hirundos all the way.

I am 5'2" and 105lbs. and a 24" natural waist and the xs fits me really well. If you are wearing a heavy rack and smaller than this, it might be too big for you and you'll have to go with the luna or the selena.
I can fit a double rack on the gear loops of this harness and it has a place for your ice clippers as well to go during the winter.
Not the most comfortable harness for long belay sessions or as a big wall harness. It cuts into my lower ribs quite a bit after a long route. All in all, a must for the alpine and trad women!

Used the Hirundos primarily for alpine and ice. Wanted a harness that was lightweight, yet comfortable for belays and rappelling. In regards to fit, I have had trouble finding a harness that fits my waist and legs (i.e. smaller waist to quad ratio) and this has been a great fit. I do wish the rear gear loop were a bit more forward and the ice clipper slot inside the loop. Also, wish there was a haul loop. Overall, good harness. If it packed down a bit more (i.e. softer) and had the above changes, it would have been five stars.

I had this harness for a couple of years. It worked great in the sport climbing crags of NW Arkansas. It's light, easy to adjust, and the gear loops had great positioning.
Unfortunately, when I moved out west and began doing multi-pitch routes, I noticed that the Hirundos didn't really stay comfy after a few minutes of belaying from an anchor.
So, if you're looking for a speed harness for short sport climbing routes than this will great. But look elsewhere if you need something with multi-pitch comfort.

Sam Dudley at on 09/28/2013

This harness has worked really well for me - I'm a girl (about 5'5, 105lb), and this is the most comfortable harness I've ever climbed in. I really only climb sport, but I've done plenty of swinging and hanging on overhung routes, and this harness, despite the fact that it's so light, is more comfortable for me than a much more padded harness I used at first. It also makes me way less sweaty, which is nice.

Genevieve Mount at on 11/01/2013


The Hirundos is a great harness. It is lightweight yet comfortable. It is simple but has all the features you will need for sport climbing. I love the quick adjusting waist buckle and the fixed legs which make it quick on and off. While I am climbing it is one thing that I don't have to worry about when I might take a whipper!

Got this when after getting into bouldering and now some top roping and eventually lead. Used it several times, very easy to get on and off. legs are comfortable but not too tight. I am pretty flexible and it is not constrictive while climbing or resting for the next climb.

Brandon at on 09/03/2013

I use this harness in the alpine and on water ice. 2 well postioned ice clipper slots and just enough padding but not a bunch of fluff. Small and compact but comfortable. I know it is a super light sport climbing harness but it works perfectly all winter for me.
