Today we feature the Black Diamond RECCO Harness
From steep ice and rime crusted alpine faces to granite big walls and limestone sport routes the Black Diamond Technician Recco Harness is a durable quiver-of-one that tackles any climb on the calendar. Featuring Recco Technology, this harness has an integrated Recco Reflector which is a passive transponder consisting of a diode and an antenna that’s lightweight and requires no power or activation to function. In the case of an accident, the Recco Reflector will make you searchable to rescuers. Made with adjustable leg loops and the lightweight support of our Fusion Comfort Technology, the Technician Recco features a quick-drying, durable shell that stands up to abrasive rock and foul conditions. Speed buckles on the waistbelt and leg loops offer a wide range of adjustability to accommodate changing layers throughout the seasons. Four gear loops, a rear fifth loop, and four Ice Clipper slots secure any sized rack.
