Rated 5 out of 5 by from Streamlined no-frills harness I'll admit, I really only climb at the gym so I cant speak for those wanting to use this outdoors, but after a few uses I can say that the Solution is a great gym harness. No extra buckles (meaning no leg loop adjust buckles - the elastic used here really fit my legs well) and a singular riser adjustment point lets you get straight to climbing. Coming from an intro-level harness, the lack of padding on the Solution was a bit off putting but they are plenty wide and actually feel super comfy / supportive while in use. The waistbelt also benefits from the minimalistic construction and really distrubutes load / pressure very well. All in all, a nice streamlined / lightweight harness for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great harness I bought this harness a while ago for sport and gym climbing and I love it! Its really comfortable to hang in while cleaning holds on a sport route and its comfortable when I take big whippers indoor and out. The only reason why I didnt give it 5 stars is because the gear loops are a little small for a mens harness and when leading sport climbs all the protection feels really tight. But other than that its light and for the price it cant be beat!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Sport Harness After recently returning from the PCT I was in the market for a new climbing harness. The BD Solution is really the perfect sport climbing harness the leg loops fit perfectly and the harness is ridiculously comfortable for hours in the gym and at the crag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great harness This is the fourth harness that I've worn or at least tried a couple of times. This thing is incredibly comfortable. I usually sport climb in it, but I also do multi-pitch routes and have been teaching people cleaning/rappelling/multi-pitch strategies in the gym and I am able to hang in it for fairly extended periods of time without fatiguing like I do in every other harness I've owned. Definitely one of the best harnesses for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Non adjustable leg loops Leg loops are non adjustable and may not fit comfortablyour certain body types specially lifting background folks should avoid it. Can't combine small waist and big legs. I tried medium and small but would have to return. Other than that it's similar to arcteryx ar 395. But less than half the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Small Legs I've climbed this harness about 9hours now. The legs straps are too thin at the inner thigh where the padding connects to the elastic material. This can make certain rest positions as well as falls more uncomfortable than with other harnesses. Quality is nice, and waist area is really comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and affordable Harness is solid, light-weight, and very comfortable. I have a 32-inch waist and bought the medium size. I didn't try on the small size, but I would have liked to because the medium is almost too big. But it still fits and is very comfortable. I'd recommend this harness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Harness I've used this harness for indoor climbing to this point, and have no complaints. It's comfortable, easy to use, and feels secure.
