When I asked some new climbing friends to guess how many brands make climbing harnesses the first climber said “16” and the second, who reported knowing this was a trick question and upped his answer, threw out 26. Andreas, who makes all of our climbing videos, also guessed 25. Not surprisingly, WeighMyRack’s official count is higher, at 38 brands selling UIAA / CE / ASTM certified climbing harnesses. And I’m sure a few more textile companies will show up to the count soon.

Worth noting: WeighMyRack doesn’t cover the professional side of harnesses — arborists, fire, Search and Rescue, etc. But in addition to standard climbing harnesses, we do include harnesses for kids, full-body climbing harnesses, and the style of harnesses that are used by guides, gyms and activity clubs. And we definitely consider ski mountaineering to be climbing so we have those uber light harnesses too.

You won’t see CMI harnesses in this list as they are meant for professional use. Similarly, we only list the recreational side of harnesses for brands like Petzl and Yates, who also make harnesses dedicated to professional use.
