Women Know What Women Want
SUPERNOVA – WOMEN‘S FIT PERFECTED
The idea for the CAMP Supernova harness was conceived and designed by CAMP USA athlete, Paige Claassen after she noticed that our lineup lacked a women‘s model. Paige is one of the country’s top sport climbers, but she’s also spent long days hanging from a harness on trad routes and enduring marathon belay sessions with heavy partners.
She worked with the women on our Italian R&D team to create an innovative waist and leg fit specifically for women – a fit that isn’t just a tweaked version of a man’s harness. Their goal was an ultra-sleek, comfortable, strategically-padded harness designed to work with the movement of a woman‘s body when climbing.
Generations of hand-made prototypes were sewn in Italy, tested, and redesigned before the Supernova was ready. The result earned an editor’s choice award from Supertopo’s Outdoor Gear Lab reviewers, who suggested it above all other women‘s rock harnesses. Mountain Gear’s online reviewer also gave it the maximum score, 5 stars.
The Supernova combines patented CAMP features like our No-Twist belay loop, with edge-load construction and perfectly-contoured EVA foam padding for comfort without bulk. It accommodates 2 HUB ice screw racking carabiners or ice clippers, 4 gear loops, and features the female-friendly flat-link elastic straps with drop seat clips to quickly disconnect leg and waist loops.
The Supernova is what happens when modern input from world-class female climbers meets 125 years of Italian climbing R&D.
“This harness is comfortable and lightweight, truly versatile, and delivers a new standard for an all-around harness. The waist belt contours specifically to a woman‘s figure, and we even liked the colors (blue and green), which are a departure from the typical purples and pinks found on other women‘s harnesses.”
