New Wild Country Summit and Spire harnesses in store

© Wild Country

Stylish and light, these new hranesses from Wild Country have a totally new construction that brings together exclusively-sourced new materials. Blended by our designers, these new fabrics create a robust, slim, laminate centred on our incredible new LST (load spread technology) webbing. Shaped across a range of belts it's a combination that provides maximum flexibility but minimum weight and bulk.

Our subtle designs with consistent, classic colours are further enhanced by combining compact, smooth, new Ziplock buckles with a slim new webbing on waist and legs. Fully featured, with men's and women's models, complementary new racking systems, new haul loops, ice racks and a super durable finish, there's a model for everyone.

The range is split into three complementary groups, with three levels of features to choose from depending on your requirements, with the Summit men's and Spire women's being our mountain models.

Summit Men's

The new Summit has that rare combination of features and performance that make an instant classic. Built to chase big goals, where adjustability, capacity and integrity are the watchwords it's constructed with our proven 'Load Spread Technology' webbing. This allows us to make waist and legs that are both lightweight but incredibly supportive; providing maximum comfort from minimal material.

Designed around a four buckle system, using the slickest, lightest version of our trusted Ziplock buckles, the Summit's amazingly adjustable without sacrificing consistent racking. And coming with seven gear loops and two ice racks, there's plenty for even the biggest pitches!

So when you need to go big, to climb higher, to carry more, in total comfort and security look no further.

Spire Women's

Pitched perfectly, the Spire is a supportive, secure and feature packed cross-season performer aimed at women climbers. Our tried and tested four buckle system means perfect adjustment, switching between thick winter layers or slimmer summer garb with ease. Built around lightweight 'Load Spread Technology' webbing it's wide, comfortable, fits beautifully and with Ziplock buckles throughout it cinches quickly and easily. A supreme load carrier, seven moulded gear loops combine with twin ice-screw holders to take the biggest multi-pitch, Alpine or ice climbing loads.

Built with the female form in mind the Spire is elegant, easy to adjust and combines high performance with an unbeatable adaptability.
