Stay light.

Where every ounce counts, Black Diamond created the Vision harness to take you up the toughest alpine routes. Fully functional and load-bearing, the Vision is equipped with molded gear loops and ice-slipper slots in order to handle the ice climbs, alpine ascents, and ski-mountaineering adventures in safe style. Speed buckles and fixed leg loops make the Vision a quick, but necessary, accessory while its ultralight and extremely packable design will make it a piece of gear hard to forget.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had this new BD harness for a month now and I've been putting it through the ringer. Since owning it I've climbed mountains, had it in the gym, committed to several short falls and multiple large rappels - it's been used in snow/glacial/ropteams, sport and alpine trad lead climbing. In short I have NO complaints - the harness has 4 practical gear loops, a 5th in back, and at LAST two hard points and a speed buckle. BD has finally given a solid and realistic answer to Petzl ultra light with all the functionality of a standard harness - I'v owned a couple couloir and though they function they are far to minimalist and this has answer the call of my needs. While it is NOT a Cadillac it maintains a surprisingly comfortable fit for as streamlined as it is.

Fantastic buy that I'm going to beat the hell out of for a few years.
