Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Light weight, packable and functionable As a pro-ski patroller, I wanted a harness that would easily fit in my patrol vest. The Couloir harness fits the bill. It is easy to put on, in the case that self-evac. is necessary and will be available if customers evacuation is needed. March 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice harness but the waist strap is too short. I purchase the XXL version of this harness to use while patrolling, mainly for lift evac and high/low angle rescue. My normal climbing harness size is XL. I appreciate the ability to tie the harness while still on skis and it is comfortable and light enough to stay in my patrol pack all the time. Unfortunately the waist strap sizing is appropriate for summer activities - When wearing cold weather ski clothing, it is difficult to get the 2-3 inches of strap extending beyond the buckle after reweaving through. I would recommend buying two size bigger if you intend to use this harness for ski mountaineering. March 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Puts the V in Versatile This harness is, hands down, the most versatile garment I own. I wear it in lieu of boxer shorts some days, and on other days, I wear it as a bra. For that application, I've found that it's most comfortable when worn upside-down. February 26, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great except for one detail... The Couloir harness is light, comfortable and easy to pack but has one major flaw...the passback waistbelt buckle. Trying to secure this buckle in driving snow, over multiple clothing layers, with or without gloves, is not easy and readjusting it means doing the process over again. If the Couloir harness had the same waist buckle system as the other BD harnesses, the pre-threaded Forged Speed Adjust buckle, although marginally heavier, it would be perfect. February 26, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Harness - Buckle Hard To Use Same as everyone else. Love this harness for soloing ice with or tossed in a the bag for the mountains. Big improvement over the Alpin Bod. Easy to put on over crampons if I'm at a point where I decide I want a harness. Buckle is a pain with gloves on or in the cold. Would love to see it replaced with one where the metal pieces separate and interlock. I'm always nervous about racking heavy on the ice clippers but so no issues so far. I spend more time in this than any other harness now. February 26, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by May not be for all women I have been using this harness in the big mountains since it came out, for me it is a 5 star. It does what it needs to do at a very light weight. BUT I bought one for my girlfriend who also climbs and it doesn't fit right. Then I started looking at the difference between men's and women's harnesses and women's have a longer belay loop. This harness is designed for men or women that have a "short" distance between waist and crotch. Most women's waists are higher than men's. So women beware and try it on before buying otherwise you may end up with a harness that you can't return to the retailer because it is 'climbing gear and not returnable'. I have a extra harness size small now that is brand new and never worn but can't be returned.... (and my girlfriend is a tight bodied climber so the waist fits no problem, it is the belay loop length that is the problem) February 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very compact perfect for use in backpack I am a Ski Patroller and this will be in my pack for emergency situations such as low angle rescue. It is easy to get on and can be done while seated down. February 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The standard Since wearing an initial prototype to the current product, I have been extremely impressed. Very light and perfect for glacier travel and ski mountaineering. A much more functional and comfortable harness than the other minimalist skimo harnesses I own. January 19, 2015
