Our New Harness Pair Jay & Jayne

NEW by Edelrid
Edelrid climbing harness Jay Jayne

No matter whether used for sport, ice or alpine climbing, these two harnesses feel at home in any terrain. Our commitment is to make good products even better, so both harnesses have been redesigned for the 2019 season and are now manufactured using bluesign® certified materials.

The newly developed Slide Block buckles on the waist belt and leg loops are more comfortable to open and close. A textile abrasion protector made from an extremely wear-resistant combination of Dyneema®/polyester protects the tie-in point from premature wear and tear.

We have retained the adjustable leg loops and the movable padding at the hips for optimally adjusting and positioning the harness. Four symmetrical gear loops provide ample space for the complete equipment. Two attachment options for ice screw clips and a chalk bag loop complete the overall package perfectly.

Jayne, the women's version of the harness, is specially tailored to the female anatomy. With two available color combinations per model, everyone can find a harness that suits them.




What is the Light Frame Construction?

Harnesses made with a load-bearing edge binding construction are particularly lightweight. The edge binding runs throughout the entire harness, so that it safely carries the load around both the hips and the legs.

Weight is proportionately distributed from the webbing to the padding. Combined with perforated foam and mesh fabrics, it's possible to make extremely lightweight harnesses with exceptional breathability. We mainly use this technology for our ultra-light sport climbing and ski touring harnesses.

Which harness size is right for me?

Getting the right fit
Snug or baggy? Secure or restrictive? We've looked at how harnesses are made and the requirements for different types of climbing. However, finding a harness that fits well is probably the most important factor. Not only will it hold you securely in a fall, it will also provide day-long comfort. Most harnesses come in a range of sizes. To get the right fit, it's worth taking a note of your measurements:

Waist size, upper thigh and for full-body harnesses, your chest size and torso length.


1. Measurement of thigh circumference // 2. Measurement of waist circumference






These measurements give a good initial indication of which harnesses to consider. Important: obviously, sizes vary depending on the retailer. Similarly to other items of clothing, shape as well as size is crucial.

A perfectly chosen harness fits around the waist in such a way that it cannot be pushed over the hips. It is important that the gear loops are pointing down and the tie-in point as well as the leg loops are not twisted. We have illustrated the correct technique for putting on a harness below.

The majority of harnesses are designed to be suitable for both men and women. Nevertheless, this is also always a compromise. Therefore we have developed some harnesses with a gender-specific shape to achieve an even better fit. Our harnesses specially designed for women are slightly more curved at the waist belt. In addition, the leg loops are slightly larger in relation to the waist belt and the tie-in point is slightly longer.

For maximum hanging comfort, both the leg loops and the waist belt should not be too tight or too wide. Therefore, when buying harnesses without adjustable leg loops, it is vital to ensure that they fit perfectly. In order not to restrict the freedom of movement a flat hand should fit between the leg loop and the thigh. Equally, a flat hand should fit between the waist and waist belt.

Most shops will fascilitate a hang check. The best way is to try different harnesses, tie-in and hang out! The harness should not cut into the body and should fit snugly.





Quality and safety are the key factors that have been driving us further since the very beginning. When making responsible and innovative high-performance ropes we also consequently have been following the maxim of sustainability. This is why EDELRID has set new industry benchmarks for sustainable rope production.

We are the first rope manufacturer to adapt our ropes to meet the tough demands of the Swiss bluesign® system. It is the most stringent environmental standard for the production of textile products: independent, internationally recognized and based on the five principles of resource productivity, consumer safety, water emission, air emission as well as occupational health & safety.

Our ropes carry the bluesign® product label thanks to their combination of certified source materials and our advanced rope production facilities in Isny. The bluesign® product label is a seal of quality: It guarantees an eco-friendly manufactured product that is low in pollutants and safe for health and the environment. As such, we have responded to the natural demands of our customers for safe, environmentally friendly and sustainable products.

Eight years of working together with bluesign technologies ag in Switzerland, allow us to draw on in-depth experience of sustainable rope production. By adapting all our rope production to the tough demands of the bluesign® system we were able to make the following efficiencies when dyeing sheath yarns:

  • 62% CO2 reduction
  • 89% savings in water
  • 63% less energy consumption
  • 63% less chemicals

For EDELRID this represents a further step towards a sustainable future. We have consistently pursued the task of pushing forward sustainable rope production so that we can continue to inspire trust in the future. We do not consider these measures a virtue, but a natural response to demands of the modern world.

It is with a clear conscience that we can say that our ropes are clean.
