This is a harness specially designed for children for multi-purpose use (rock climbing, via ferrata). There are two kinds of children’s harness:
1) Full-body harness: the straps cover the whole of the child’s body (hips and chest). This kind of harness is recommended for children weighing under 40kg, as they have a higher centre of gravity than adults and the tie-in point needs to be higher to prevent inversion.
2) Classic harness: these harnesses are recommended for more experienced young climbers only, as there remains a higher risk of inversion than with a full-body harness.
