“Daddy/mummy, can I go climbing today?” – these are words that any climbing parent will know. More and more kids are getting into climbing, so non-climbing parents may also be hearing the same words spoken by young Johnny or Jennifer.
But which type of harness should you get for your son or daughter?
A full body harness makes sense with smaller children as it gives an added degree of security and safety in fall situations. The higher tie in point reduces the chance of inversion. The shoulder straps also eliminate the possibility of the child sliding out of the harness.
A kid’s harness must give a comfortable fit over a large range of body shapes and sizes. DMM spent a lot of time tweaking the Tom Kitten to make sure that they got this just right. They've even fitted it with padded floating leg loops which can be moved into the optimum position for comfort, regardless of the size of the child.
