Rated 4 out of 5 by Paul Expecting good things...but gear loops disappointingly small
Overall this looks to be a good harness and came recommended...but I received it and noticed the gear loops are smaller that other harnesses that I have (have had). They also seem to be a little more rearward...seems like the front gear loops could have been extended forward to accommodate more gear. Was hoping to use this for my ice AND rock/alpine harness but seems that it will not be "comfortable" enough to carry a lot of gear for bigger/longer trad climbs. Maybe this will be adequate...will have to wait and see. Looks like it will be a GREAT harness for ice climbing...don't need as much stuff on the harness then anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brandon Good Brand, Great Product
I have had this product for about two months and it is my first real harness other than those i've borrowed. I must say that I am impressed overall by the product. The adjustment loops are very easy and are very convenient with the auto-locking feature. The padding is very comfortable for hanging around and climbing. From what I've seen so far this is a great harness and I recommend this to anyone!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ryan Good fit and solid construction.
My 4th BD Harness and, like the others, it doesn't disappoint. A solid value with great features. The auto-buckles are fast and easy to operate and while I wouldn't want to hang in this all day it is padded enough for comfortable climbing and the occasional hanging belay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zachary Harness is great
BD harnesses are great. I use it ice climbing. Extra loops for Caitools are a nice touch.

The only fault I can find with this harness is the small haul loop. I have an older BD harness with a slightly larger loop that makes clipping/unclipping extra gear, water bottles, shoes, gloves, etc. SO much easier.
The small loop just makes this process a little awkward - hopefully the next iteration includes a larger loop.

What a great little harness! Purchased to add to my fleet of harnesses for guiding ice routes in New Hampshire. I switched away from the company with a fossilized bird as it's icon and over to BD. Cost per dollar is just far better. The gear loops are a great size and love the little angle they stick out at on the bottom. Clutch for clipping gear on the fly when you have layers of clothing on. Also love the fact that there are four places to put BD ice clippers instead of three offset ones on the old A320 harnesses. Relatively light weight and comfortable. Great color as well. Thanks again for a great product! I've only given it four stars to start as I'd like to have the entire season under the belt (no pun intended) before giving it a five.

Use it primarily for ice, mixed, dry-tooling. Comfy and fits great. Buckles are bomber, but a little hard to loosen when taking the harness off with big gloves when it's COLD. While I like the gear loop and ice clipper placements, I would like to see the gear loops a little bigger or more flared out from the harness for easier racking. It's my choice for an all-around harness.
