Does look cool though.

I'm holding out until they have a full body suit with integrated gear sling, helmet and footwear as well as pockets for bivy gear and whatnot. Only then will the "action suit" truly fulfill its potential. bag

No speed buckles uh... I expect to see a number of the most challenged contributors to this website sporting those next season. Unless it's not made in 'murica of course. Boissal

i want one of those other harnesses in the background.
they appear to have a built in/on chalk bag, Perfect!
now the chalk is always where i thought it was, which
is great for chimneys. . .

Seems like a good idea for alpine routes with a short rappel or something where packing a separate harness would be a bit more of a hassle. Is this gimicky? You bet! Am I thinking I might benefit from it? Yeah I am.

EDIT: but to wear this instead of a real harness at the crag seems ridiculous!

I recall seeing an alpine pant with a similar idea. Makes sense for the mountaineering to have an integrated harness, especially for routes which require very little roped work.

However, makes no sense to have in shorts form.

So you admit that you are lazy at work? Glad you only work in a gym, and not at the hospital.

I'm impressed that literally any brain fart can make all the way to the store front. And here I am still trying to patent my retractable rope-n-a-box idea. Tina Rishard

If people have to be told, it's probably not funny.
