UP Alpine Lightweight Harness
The new UP Alpine Reversible Harness is designed for all of those pilots out there with a passion for self-propelled arrivals at launch altitude. Weighing in at just 2.8kgs (M size, without carabiners) the Alpine is both a harness and a backpack in one.
Combine it with a Pico X-Light for a superlight fast ascent even on moderately technical routes, or with a standard Pico for traveling, hiking or just all-round light living.
The backpack makes up one of the chambers of the dual-chambered inflatable airbag, meaning that even when on para-alpinism adventures the passive safety remains good - this hasn't always been the case!
The UP Alpine reversible harness is on stock at the UP HQ in all sizes, i.e. sizes S, M and L, with new light UP twist lock carabiners in aluminum, weighing less than half (67g) of the standard UP steel carabiners. It is equipped with the Safe-T lock buckle system, still the most secure way of avoiding the dreaded drop from an unclosed harness.
And if safety is your thing, don't forget to include a UP Profile Light in the package - you'll still be able to stay under 10kgs for a full kit, and your loved ones will love you for the consideration you're showing!
