Now that I have several days of ice climbing with the Halo, I'm downgrading my previous glowing review to four stars because the harness only has two ice clipper loops. Yes, I used Petzl Caritools to add clippers in the front, but I find it less dialed than I like. Harness still great for everything except waterfall type ice climbing, for that the Cuesta Adj is a better harness.
I've owned a lot of harnesses in my 30 years of climbing, but the Halo is the best I've owned - both as a specialist and all arounded. In the past, I used a different harness for sport and trad but the Halo excels at both. I can't wait to use as my ice/alpine harness,which is why I bought it. It is so light and easy to move in but surprisingly super comfortable at hanging belays. I wish it had four (not just two) ice clipper loops and a fifth gear loop, but it still easily deserves five stars. Blue Ice is killing it with gear that give climbers something actually new and better, and IMO this is their best offering yet.
