Fusion Comfort Construction™

Intent on building a harness that would move with the body it protects, we designed a triple-weave webbing on the interior of the harness’s waistbelt that provides movement-focused technology while maintaining superior breathability, durability and strength. Also featured on the harness’s leg loops, this technology offers excellent load sharing, relieving pressure from sensitive points of contact.

Solution Harness is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Comfy, Sizing Seems Different Positives: Seems lighter than my Flight or Ozone and much more comfortable than either of those. I've used it hanging in belays and also dangling while rigging new routes, very pleased with the wider waist belt and leg loops. Negative:The sizing seems a bit different compared to the Flight or Ozone. I am a medium in those harnesses but the medium in the Solution seemed a bit snug in the medium. I tried on a Large and while the waist is great now the leg loops are a bit big. I guess I need the elusive Extra Medium size to get the perfect fit. The comfort aspect is worth it not being the perfect fit, plus the price is great for this nice of a harness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Black Diamond harness yet. I've owned the Xenos and the Ozone and the Solution blows them away. I reminds me of the dead bird harnesses without the inflated pricing. I've used it for sport and trad with no complaints. Once you have it on you forget it's there. I've got a 31" waist and (relatively) big thighs and the fit is great. In the past I've always been between a small and a medium size due to the leg loops. BD should have made this harness years ago!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great value This is a great harness...esp at that price. I find it similar to my old non-adjustable Arcteryx. Very comfy and light. Haven't tried a hanging belay in it yet but hangdogging and belaying people that are hangdogging was fairly comfy. The sizing did seem a bit off on the waist to leg loop ratio...I found the Medium to be fairly snug for my 33" waist and the leg loops could have been a bit tighter (but I have fairly skinny thighs) I love the blue color but I wish they had made the belay loop a bright, contrasting color like red.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect They did it! All the BD harnesses I have owned and tried over the years, have come into the Solution and it has been solved. Lightweight, durable, organized and super comfortable to make a harness perform perfectly. So comfortable I forget it's still on after a long multi-pitch day~perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfy I bought this harness about a month ago to replace a Momentum I had been using for a while, and the Solution was perfect. It is so simple, and super cozy to wear an entire day of sport climbing. If you are looking for simple and comfortable, I would recommend this harness.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Improved comfort, but altered fit A few months ago, I decided it was time to replace my Black Diamond Flight harness. Initially, I thought I would simply buy another Flight harness and go on my merry way. But, while searching, I found that the Flight was no longer being made and that it seemed to have been replaced in the Black Diamond lineup by the Solution. Since I had been very satisfied with the Flight harness (I actually bought it twice), I figured I'd give the Solution a try. Overall, the design is sleeker and lighter than the Flight. The two biggest improvements I've noticed: 1) The new material is much more skin friendly 2) The new design distributes weight better, creating more comfortable belaying and whipping experience Other characteristics I've noticed: 1) The gear loops feel smaller than those on the Flight. I don't ever see this being an issue for me personally since I'll only use it for sport climbing, but it is noticeable. 2) The leg loops are not adjustable and, instead, are elastic. 2) The sizing is definitely different from the Flight. I wear a comfortable medium in the Flight and I have to tighten the waist almost as tight as it goes to get a secure fit. In the Solution, I bought a medium expecting a similar fit but found that it feels a little off. I still have to tighten the waist strap about as tight as it goes, but the leg loops feel a little too snug and it feels like it's made for someone with a shorter torso (maybe the belay loop is too small?). While climbing, none of this is noticeable. But, when I initially put it on, I still have to adjust everything to get a normal-feeling fit. All in all, I think this harness is definitely an improvement over the Flight. But I would recommend trying it on before purchasing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from BD missed the boat on sizing This would be an otherwise good harness except for the size. As others have indicated, BD completely missed the boat on the sizing (and size grading) of this harness. I'm a size medium in every other harness BD makes, but for whatever reason the waist is too small in size medium of the Solution, and the leg loops are far, far too tight for the size. Thinking that for some reason I was between sizes, I tried size large -- and while the waist now fits, the legs loops are way too big and sloppy. As an added minus, the gear loops are quite small. I'm not sure why this particular harness is inconsistent in its sizing compared to other BD harnesses, but given that others have mentioned it, I don't think it's because "harnesses are intended for different uses, and that affects their size," as a BD phone rep told me. I think BD just missed the boat in QA or in the design of the size of this harness -- plain and simple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best BD Harness I've Worn I've put nearly all of the different BD sport and trad harnesses through the paces over the past several years. They've all been pretty darn good, but they have also left some room for improvement. I can say without a doubt that the Solution is the best yet. Way more comfy than the Ozone at (nearly) the same weight. Its a no brainer.
