great basic harness

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This harness is a great all round harness. If you're a tweener size on the waist, go with the larger size instead of the smaller.

Momentum harness

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is my first harness and I have only used it in a gym. That said I think it will work great when I transition to outside. I ordered a medium and wear a size 30” in jeans. I have to cinch the medium all the way down but I am glad I didn’t order a small. Very pleased with this harness.

Black Diamond for the win!

Super affordable, bomb proof and comfortable harness. Plenty of room of gear, you can not go wrong with this purchase.

Best all around harness

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a great harness for the money

Great harness for the gym

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Got this harness just for the gym as I was starting to think my old one was getting too old to be safe. Speed adjust is very convenient. Gear loops look robust. Feels pretty light. Might use it for clipping bolts outside in the future, but it's not going to replace my Misty Mtn harness for trad or any long multipitch climbs.

First Harness

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have been bouldering for a while, but I figured it was time to finally get a harness so I can top rope and sport climb. This harness is very comfortable, and a great price! I am about a 32-33 waist and I went with the medium. I am definitely on the upper end of a medium, so 34 waist and up should go with the large.

keeps me safe, comfortable, love the speed adjust!

Momentum Harness

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This harness is a replacement for my old worn out harness and it’s been great so far. A medium fits my 30” waist perfect and it adjusts nice and snug on my waist and thighs. Plenty of loops to hang your draws and anything else you need.

Great Harness

    This harness is extremely comfortable. It doesn’t twist and turn and bunch up.

    Getting into climbing, I was needing a harness. I didn't believe love at first site until I received this harness! This product is extremely great, especially for the price. First of all, can't go wrong with Black Diamond. I was skeptical about the sizing as I am a 32" waist/weighing 145lbs, being in the middle of a medium and a large. Went with a medium and fits perfectly! The waist strap is a normal tightener, but the leg loops were interesting. Instead of having extra strap to pull on, there is a tap you slide left and right to loosen and tighten. Once you get it, you'll understand. That being said, it held its tightness, I didn't have to tighten for each climb. I did have to get used to the waist belt as its twisted left, so the straps open on my left hip. But super cool thing is to have the gear loops closer to the front where I can see. It's a solid investment, completely recommend!

    Comfort on Another Level

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These harnesses are great! Nice wide padding in the leg loops helps to distribute weight when free hanging/rappelling, making it great for climbing and canyoneering. It has adjustable buckles at the waist and leg loops so you can snug up the fit even more before tackling a difficult route. Reinforcred gear loops means your pro is always handy as well.

    Great item with great fit

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    It was really hard to get this size in stores but It was here in great price.
    Really nice with great fit.
    It fills very secure and looks great.

    All the right places ;)

      Great beginners harness the fits and feels great in all the right places, feels super secure and the gear loops have plenty of space and are pretty solid. Great snag for the price. Stay sensual.

      Comfortable and Affordable

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Great Harness for the novice climber. Padding is great making heavier falls much more mellow which increases your confidence when climbing. All in all a great harness for the price.

      Comfortable

      Comfortable, light, easy to use. They use it for canyoneering and you cant beat the price

      Super!

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      Comfortable, easy to use, good price. Padding is great and doesn't interfere with your climbing but is much appreciated when you fall. If you're looking for a harness that will serve really niche needs, maybe hunt around a bit more, but would recommend this to any novice/intermediate climber. Great all-around harness.

      Pretty sick

      Enough Said

      Great harness for the price

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      So far I only do top rope in a gym, so I can't comment on using it for outdoor lead climbing etc., but I've found this harness to be a great buy. It's well-padded, surprisingly light, easy to adjust, and most important, I feel completely safe in it. The material also breathes well so my waistband and leg loops never get sweaty or anything. I haven't noticed any issues with chafing. I'm sure some of the more expensive offerings from Petzl, Mammut, or even Black Diamond itself are superior in some way or another, but probably not in terms of bang-for-your-buck. I'm pretty skinny (5-8, 135) and went with the size small and the fit is perfect.

      The only negative I can see is that the gear loops feel kind of flimsy. That doesn't mean they actually are, but they seem oddly wobbly compared to my perception of the solid construction of everything else in the harness. This doesn't matter for me climbing in a gym since all I hang on them is a chalk bag, but if you're outdoors and have a lot of gear to put on them it might be something to consider. Last, I want to comment on adjusting the harness. The first time I used it, I found it extremely comfortable to climb in right from the start, but surprisingly belaying was very uncomfortable/pinching up front. I played with the legs loops (no dice) but then found that the problem was that I needed to significantly shorten the straps connecting the back side of the leg loops to the waistband. Once I did that, the leg loops sat under my butt more and distributed my climbing partner's weight more effectively. Now I don't have any problems.

      Thanks for the great review Anthony!

      Great gift with great feedback!

      I got these for my little brother and this is what he had to say:
      "The harness is comfortable, easy to adjust, and is fairly inexpensive. I'd recommend it to anyone getting into climbing. All around great product! "

      Great gift with great feedback!
