Petzl – Selena Harness Review by Maddie Stocks September 2012


On a recent trip to Thailand I took Petzl’s Selena Harness. Having tried it on at home I was happy with the initial sizing, but wary that it might not be comfortable enough for 3 weeks of constant sport climbing, I packed my old trusty too…just in case. After climbing for a few days and once I had blown away the cobwebs, I pulled it out of the bag and took it with me to a crag that had some short pumpy routes. I hadn’t had time to read any reviews of the harness before I left, so I had no idea if it was designed for sport/trad/big walls or how long it had been around for. I was excited to try it out.
