Rated 5 out of 5 by from My workhorse. Love it. I've used this harness for 2 years solid for gym and outdoor sports and trad climbing. It's really easy to adjust and is easy to put on/take off. It's not incredibly comfortable to sit in but for most of the climbing I do I'm not sitting (ie aid climbing). What I find is that the lumbar area bites in a bit too much if you are hanging for extended periods (those times where you have to clean stuck gear). Otherwise the gear loops are great and the tie-in works well even with a PAS and a 'biner on them (the belay loop doesn't take too much room). For tie-in with a rope on both loops, no issues at all. The gear loops allow you to put a load of gear on them and I really like the fact that it has a mini loop at the back for lightweight stuff such as a chalk back, knife, nut tool etc. It also has a haul loop to tie in your haul line.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from cool color, small gear loops, weird fit I wanted to like this harness, after all, it is from an American company, had good reviews online, is well built, and it comes in my favorite color that matches my outfit. However, I think I will be bringing this back and going back to a Petzl harness or trying a different BD harness. Good: Awesome color, great build quality, rated tag loop, and a cool, innovative, back loop for your chalk bag and/or anchor gear. Bad: Runs very small, and as others have mentioned, not comfortable. It really digs into your hips/lumbar while you are dangling, moreso than other harnesses. However, the real deal breaker for me, the gear loops are not only small, but even the front loops sit pretty far back, so I have to twist my head and neck a lot to reach for my gear. If you like to rack a bunch of trad gear on your gear loops, this might not be the harness for you. All in all, this didn't live up to the reviews as an "all around harness". It probably is a great harness for ice climbing, except the buckles are crazy tight and you need two hands to adjust them

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value, Fits Well, Very Adjustable This climbing harness mostly caught my eye because of the color. My only other experience with harnesses are the rental ones, so I am certainly an amateur. I have been using it now for about a month with weekly indoor climbs. This one fits really well. It's adjustable in many locations. It feels like it has the right amount of padding to remain comfortable, but not so much that it weighs you down. The legs and waist straps are adjustable to fit around varying thicknesses of clothing. For the price, this one is a great value for a casual climber.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fine all around harness This harness serves well in many roles, cragging to ice to multi pitch. If you want one harness for everything, this is a solid choice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, solid harrness Great product, not perfectly comfortable if you have to sit in it for extended periods but not the worst I've worn. The steel buckles are great, the last harness from BD broke on a leg loop but this has a much better design. Color is great and fun. Gear loops are stiff and perfect for anything one might need. The only complaint is that it did hurt to sit in after about 10 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, So good. I wanted a decent harness and Black Diamond makes a quality product. I was shocked at how light the harness is and the features it offers. Automatic double-backing straps are quick and easy and overall a comfortable and reliable experience. The price is a little steep, but a great rig nonetheless. I'm using it for top-rope and hopefully leading in the near future.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does it's job. - PeriodEnd The Medium is almost too small for me, especially when I am putting it over my layers for Ice Climbs - but when I tried on the Large, it was HUGE. It gets the job done, but is not the most comfortable to sit in during hanging belays. It sits on my hips a little funky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I have done many lead climbs, facilitated high ropes courses and just used it in the gym at school, and it is a great harness.
