What is the difference between the Petzl Canyon Guide and Canyon Revolution harness?
The Petzl Canyon Guide Harness and Canyon Revolution are both very comfortable harnesses to hang in. Both belts have some advantages. The Petzl Canyon Guide has a metal attachment point (which can be a plus) that you can remove to place your lifeline directly in the hole behind it. The belt is made in two sizes. The disadvantage of the Petzl belt is that the leg loops are equipped with double back buckles, just like your old model has. Many canyoneers find that the leg loops release themselves with a lot of sliding and jumping and you have to tighten them every time.
The Canyon Revolution has the great advantage that with 2 rings it has a short bridge and an attachment point that both can be fully used. This gives you a very flexible belt that is extremely comfortable to hang in for a longer period of time. The advantage here is that the spank protect / sliding pants are made of polytec, a much more wear-resistant material than the standard TPU / PVC protective seat from Petzl (up to 5 times longer life) and that it is attached at the top with Velcro to be able to adjust the height. (so that your leg loops are at the right height).
For seat belts, it is always best to be able to hang in them so that you experience how it hangs for you. Your physique determines whether or not it is comfortable for you. So it is wise to try this out,
