WIld Country took the best elements of the old Syncro and then went back to the drawing board. The result is a completely new construction that offers superior versatility, comfort, support and ventilation with maximum gear carrying capacity for long lines and big wall projects – and all at a reasonable weight. Made with a super comfortable padding, and matched with robust, abrasion-resistant Ripstop covering, the Syncro offers a proven combination of durability, flexibility and weight distribution for hanging belays and long days without uncomfortable pressure points. They also gave the reinforced lower tie-in point a wear indicator. It has red threads that only become visible after excessive wear and abrasion, to show when it is time to replace the harness. A further important standout feature is the ventilated Air Mesh zone for increased breathability in the lumbar region.
The two beefy slide block buckles on the 25 mm webbing waistbelt and on the 20mm webbing leg loops can be fully opened to make the harness easier to put on when wearing skis or crampons. For each of the four buckles you get elastic strap retainers to prevent loose ends.
The Syncro features a total of six gear loops with two rigid front loops and four softer loops at the back for multiple racking options and uncluttered organisation. The gear loops are also specifically designed for easy gear retrieval and its twin buckles at the waist allow you to keep everything centred, no matter how many layers you’re wearing. And there are two slots for carrying tool or ice screw holders and a decent-sized rear haul loop too.
