I just got a rock climbing harness. I don't like the idea of using a standard tether and having the carabiner connected to the belay loop due to the potential for noise via contact with my bow or anything else. Has anyone found a decent tether that eliminates this issue?

I wrap my carabiners with hockey tape.

From: KHNC
Yes, wrapping with tape is the way to do it. I have used a saddle for years. I dont know of a better solution.

I use the looped end of my lineman's belt.

I used my looped end also.

From: PAOH
I use a continuous loop & choke that thru the harness & use the carabiner onto the lifeline. Also I wrap the caribabiner

No carabiner on belay loop. Girth hitch with Beal Dynaclip
