    Rated5out of5byfromGreat All Around HarnessI am just beginning to learn mountaineering and rock climbing and this harness is really comfortable and I feel really safe using it.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat quality and dependable harnessGreat first harness and even better harness for advancing in difficulty with indoor rock climbing. Works very well with top rope climbing, and automatic belays. Comfortable and still makes me feel safe and secure.

    Rated4out of5byfromSizingMy only problem with any harness has been finding the right size. When I use the size charts, I'm a small based off of the range given for small, medium, and large sizes. However, when it comes to fitting in the actual harness I have to do the "jean dance" to get into the small and that's not attractive nor fun and it's definitely not something I want to do with a harness. The small fits my waist and legs like it's supposed to but because of my hips and "bu-dunka-dunk" I sized up to the medium. Go to the store and try them on if you're a girl with hips and a tush!

    Rated5out of5byfromVery comfortable harnessI am a size 0 (or 25) with a 24 inch waist measured around and I purchased this harness in XS. It fits me very well compared to all of the other harnesses that I tried on. The Petzl Luna for example was too big and uncomfortable because it only comes in size S. I also like the fact that this Black Diamond Primose harness is seamless all the way around which is why it's so comfortable. The other harnesses where you can see the seam line makes the edges pretty hard so when it presses into your skin, it can be pretty uncomfortable.

    Rated5out of5byfromA comfortable harness at a good priceI'm a climbing instructor for youth, so days when I climb I tend to be in the harness all day long. My old harness needed to be replaced, and after trying on several harnesses I went with this one for several reasons. Some of the harnesses are now sized as a "Small/Medium" and billed as adjustable, but I am fairly petite, so the fact that this model was available in an Extra Small size was helpful. As an instructor, I've noticed that many people wear their harnesses way too loose. I've seen a person invert and slide out of the harness, so I'm a real stickler for a good fit that cinches the waist above the hipbones. I had to look online to find the manufacturer's recommended waist sizes for this harness (24"-27" for the Extra Small), but this one fits me very well. Other styles I tried on had a wider waist band, which dug into the bottom of my rib cage, but this one allowed me to move more freely. The quick adjust on the legs works very well, and makes it easy to loosen the leg loops when you are belaying or moving around, and very easy to tighten them back up when you climb or rappel. There are plenty of gear loops, and they are positioned nicely. The real test came when I took this harness out for a day of climbing and working with kids. Even after a 10 hour day in the harness, nothing rubbed or pulled, and I stayed comfortable. The waist fits nicely, and even when cinched down for a snug fit, it doesn't bind or chafe. I have a longer torso, but this harness fit comfortably and didn't cause the leg loops to pull. My only complaint is a mild one - the waist band is not made of a breathable fabric, so you can expect to sweat some underneath it. All in all, that's a small price to pay for something that is safe and durable. I'm very satisfied with this purchase - I think I got a great product for a good price.

    Rated4out of5byfromDoes it's job and it's least expensiveThis is my first ever harness purchase. I use it for indoor climbing weekly. I like that it was cheap, but it doesn't do a cheap job. The leg straps are super easy to adjust. When buying it I was originally going to buy the large because that's what size I buy in many other things. Luckily I was helped in realizing that the large was way too big. Now that I've had my medium for nearly 3 months I can see that it too can be big in the waist, leaving no room to tighten it more. (I'm 5'7" and weigh 155 if that helps any.) If you're even a tad smaller than me I would suggest buying a small, but then again I'm not an expert.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat for starting out!This harness feels well made and is great for the price. I was looking at unisex harnesses but ended up buying this one instead because of the fit. Women tend to fit a smaller waist and larger leg loops than men's or unisex harnesses as well as a longer inseam, and this one was very comfortable.
