Petzl's updated version of the popular Selena harness weighs the same as the previous version, but now fits better and has a more comfortable, more padded waist belt. It is less breathable but more suited to hanging in. Some other features have been made easier to use, such as the detachable leg loops, but we feel that the rear gear loops are still too small and hard to reach. One of only 2 women's harnesses that we reviewed that accommodates ice clippers, this non-adjustable version would be an excellent choice for a female mixed climber. A mountaineer or ice climber might prefer the version of this harness with adjustable leg loops, the Petzl Luna because it fits more easily over multiple layers of clothing. If you want a super light harness for sport climbing, we recommend the Black Diamond Siren. A better choice for gear climbing is the Mammut Ophira, which has larger and easy to reach gear loops.
