Anybody know if it's possible to get gear loops moved forward on a harness? If so, who does it?

I'd check out misty mountain to see if they can. They def customize, but how specific i'm not sure.

Wonder if MM will do work on a harness from a different manufacturer. It's a Camp-USA harness. I already emailed Camp, so if they won't do it I'll try MM. Thanks.

No doubt those are nice harnesses. But I got the Air CR cause it's so light. I have some backcountry climbs in mind where the approaches promise to be harder than the climbs, so ounces count.

The MM Bolt is 4 ounces heavier than your Air CR.

Sew them on yourself. I have an Air CR and I sewed on a gear loop in the back. Just get some 9/16 " flat webbing and sew it in half. find some tubing at the local hardware store feed the webbing through then hand tack the webbing into place. Its super easy to do.

Chris, call misty up. I had similar needs to yours last year when i was planning a trip to New Zealand that never happened. i knew i wanted a misty, but didnt want the weight of my caddy on the approaches. so, i had them build me a super lightweight alpine/ice climbing harness, complete with ice clipper slots. its ridiculously light, and packs up super small, especially without the ice clipper slots. its also extremely comfortable somehow, with less padding and less foam, they really did a great job on it, i dont know the exact weight, but its quite light, best of all, made in murica.

ive attached some pics so you can see what im talking about, super thin foam, the second pic is in comparison to my cadillac, which is still going very strong after two spring/summer/fall seasons of daily use guiding.

Yeah, I might do that. I used to rig and sew parachutes and I still have a small Singer that will take E thread. I'm just not very brushed up on my sewing anymore, so I'm going to try the manufacturers first.

Wow Kilroy, that's awesome. If I had known MM would do that I would have gone that route in the first place.

Another vote for Misty -- I have one of their Bolt harnesses since I'm a single pitch weenie for the most part, and I love it. Really light, robust, simple. And for how light it is, it's insanely comfortable. Even just sitting in those Arcteryx warp harnesses it feels like my hips are being cut apart. But I can whip all day long in my Misty.

Those guys are miracle workers, AND they do custom work, if for some reason their awesome stock harnesses won't do the trick. Definitely the way to go if you can.

MM are the best. They'll likely do anything you ask. They've made me a few harnesses in black instead of the color advertized on their website. Sure rhey'd have no problem doing extra gearloops, etc.
