It’s not a big surprise that men tend to be more expensive than women, according to a recent report from Climbing Outfitters.
The data showed that while the average price of a men’s climbing harness is $40 more than a women’s climbing outfit, the difference between the two is even greater for the lead climbing gear.
The report, “Climbing Up and Down the Mountain: The Cost of Attending a Lead Climbing Event,” estimated that men spend an average of $36.75 on climbing gear while women spend $38.25.
The most expensive gear for women is the lead-climbing gear, which cost a whopping $35.65.
In contrast, the most expensive men’s gear is the gear that women can wear for free or a $28.95.
This disparity is even more apparent for women than men, the report found.
While women’s harnesses are often seen as being a good investment, the majority of the time the price is not a great deal for a man.
Women tend to spend a greater percentage of their money on the top of the harness, while men spend the most on the bottom.
For example, the top is typically made of a softer material that has a greater cushioning effect.
In other words, men’s harness is more prone to wear and tear, while women’s are less prone to tears.
But what makes men’s top and bottom climbing gear more expensive?
This is where it gets tricky.
The study found that the price of the top and the bottom are often dependent on what you’re climbing.
For women, they are typically a little more expensive when climbing with the help of ropes, pulleys, or even a harness.
But for men, these are the same type of gear.
For instance, men are more likely to buy the best-selling climbing rope in a given year.
The best-seller of climbing rope is a $4,000 rope.
This is often the best quality of rope to buy because it’s made of high-quality materials and can last for years.
However, men also tend to purchase cheaper climbing gear when climbing on rocky or rough terrain.
For this reason, men tend not to buy these types of gear because it is more difficult and less durable.
The other issue that comes up is that the best climbing gear can be made from less durable materials.
In this case, the best choice would be the one that can withstand years of abuse.
For a great example of this, take a look at a $7,000 climbing rope made from a synthetic nylon material.
In comparison, a $3,500 climbing rope can only withstand one-third as much abuse as a $30,000 synthetic nylon rope.
If you’re looking for the best hiking harness for men and women, you need to look elsewhere.
The good news is that women’s and men’s tops can be interchangeable.
For the purposes of this study, we only focused on the leading and second-best selling climbing gear from the top three manufacturers.
