Black Diamond ASPIR Harness



Alert: Petzl ASPIR Harnesses

Petzl has shared a news release about a safety concern with their ASPIR harnesses. An unknown number of these harnesses were dangerously modified and then resold on Ebay, which is never a recommended source for buying climbing gear. Safety leg loops or waistbelts were cut and restiched in a way they could break under force within range of standard climbing activities. These harnesses should be inspected and Petl recommends destroying them if such stitching is present.
