Misty Mountain Cadillac Tactical Climbing Harness

At Outdoor Retailer, Misty Mountain showed me their new Cadillac Tactical Climbing Harness but it was still a few weeks from release. But now, it’s fully available.

Misty Mountain is well known within the relatively small cadre of military mountaineers. They reached out to these customers before beginning work on the Cadillac and asked what these professionals were looking for. According to Misty Mountain, they were repeatedly told, “strength, durability, comfort, and abrasion resistance, plus ease of use while wearing gloves, and strong connection points for easier, safer transitions. Make it easy to adjust, lightweight, and super burly so it can stand up to the nastiest environments.” Taking this guidance they set out to create the Cadillac Tactical sit harness.

They’ve used the latest materials to create this harness. Misty Mountain’s description is more than adequate:

The new Cadillac Tactical features a monochromatic color scheme, four quick adjust buckles for ease of fit, four strong, integrated nylon gear loops with TRELLEBORG high abrasion reinforced Kevlar fabric. TWEAVE DURASTRETCH High Tenacity Nylon inner layer is durable and abrasion resistant. Removeable leg loops feature auto-block loops for easy rappel back-up, adjust for dorsal rise and offer quick release option. Wide, layered comfort comes from tough 1000 Denier CORDURA nylon laminate sublayer to spread forces over a wider surface area of closed cell, cross-linked .25″ EVAZOTE foam padding. Soft foam edges roll for comfort, and black anodized 6061 T-6 Aluminum 2 piece quick adjust buckles work smoothly but lock as needed with 1″ tubular Climbspec nylon webbing.

Cadillac Tactical harness strength rated to 16 kN (3,600 lbs), gear loops and rear haul loop rated to 10 kN (2,250 lbs).

The Cadillac is a sized harness offered in XSmall – XXXLarge. Berry compliant and available in Coyote or Black, if you’re at Modern Day Marine next week, stop by the Extreme Outfitters booth and check out Misty Mountain.
