It's pretty light weight (380g apparently) and has adjustable leg loops, with elastic bits too, and a single waist buckle. There are 4 gear loops. For more of the technical specifications just check out the Edelrid website.

Weather proof: Harnesses don't really need to keep you dry but they do need to not absorb water and then let it freeze giving you an icy slab to carry around. Luckily for the Creed it appears to be made of a non-absorbent material.
Other features: Some other things on the Creed which stand out are the very thin belay loop. You would think that this would wear out pretty quick but no. I have had a daisy chain larks-footed to this for the past 2 winters, and occasionally through summer, and it still show no excessive signs of wear. There is a haul loop on the back of the harness but it is very small. I have never had the need for a haul loop before but I figure a very small one isn't of much use. For everyday climbing I doubt this will effect you and in the event that you do need one it is there. There are two caritool slots, one on either side between the gear loops. I found these to be a bit too loose and allow the caritool to turn around. I however suspect this is a problem with the caritools I have. I use Black Diamond ones, but I suspect the larger Petzl ones may work better.

This harness is really good and despite its lightness stands up to everything you can throw at it. Like with everything there are some faults but one big thing in its favour is its price (about £75 depending on where you look). I give this 1 thumb up.
