The next generation of Warp Strength Technology™.

February 20, 2020

c-quence harnessArc’teryx returns to its origins with the next evolution of Warp Strength Technology™ showcased in the new C-Quence Harness. Through extensive research and consultation, the C-Quence achieves its goal of providing the highest level of function and hanging comfort in the lightest possible package.


• Contoured swami and leg loops offer unmatched comfort and ease of movement

• Evolved gender-specific geometry and fit

• 4 gear loops and 4 ice clippers make this a versatile harness in a light fixed leg loop silhouette



The informed design of C-Quence was developed by a dedicated team who spent years examining body ergonomics to change weight distribution and ensure maximum comfort, especially hanging comfort. Designer and climber, Katie Mah, studied more than 60 people, athletes and staff of all shapes and sizes to identify pressure and pinch points. The findings were then passed to teammate Cam Stewart, a biomechanical engineer, who compiled and crunched the data. Together they refined the prototypes multiple times to create the C-Quence Harness. “We started by studying the foundations of comfort: body geometry and fit. By truly understanding all the nuances, we were able to create a harness that we feel provides the perfect balance of durability and all-round comfort. I’ve been climbing in Arc’teryx harnesses since I was eight, so it was incredible to be a part of the team that brought this idea to life.” - Katie Mah, Equipment Designer


Made in Canada at the Arc’teryx owned and operated manufacturing facility. Tried and tested on a community of the most dedicated and informed users, with distinct models built to provide comfort for women and men. The C-Quence Harness is stored in a packable bag constructed from recycled materials.
