If you are loyal to Petzl harnesses and want either a light sport climbing harness or an alpine harness, you will love this. If you want the absolute lightest harness for alpine routes, the Camp Air is 30 percent lighter. If you are looking for a high performance sport climbing harness and can spend another the extra money, we recommend the Black Diamond Ozone. If you are considering this harness also look hard at the Petzl Sama, which is only a little heavier and much more comfortable and versatile.
The Hirundos is now available in a new color and has received a few upgrades that we outline below.
