Best Black Diamond harness ever
This is by far the best sport climbing harness ever made. I use this for single and multi pitch sport climbs and it is super comfy. Don't let the thin design throw you off, it is great for long belays and when your climbing you forget it seven on. The gear loops are great quality, and can fit 6-7 quickdraws on each loop. The fit is exact to the sizing chart, no bigger, no less. Over all, the best harness I have ever put on, and good job to BD keep doing what your doing.

Good, but some flaws
Light, packs small, reasonably comfortable. Just a few small tweaks needed. Gear loops are small, front loop could be a touch larger and slightly more forward. Rear clip loop could be a touch more slack to make clipping tag style stuff into it blind behind your back a bit easier as well. I am 6'2" 185 lbs and I wear a medium, legs are a bit tight for me, but this is true to my common fit of needed large leg loops and medium waste.

Lightweight harness thats still full featured
Whats up BD customers,
This harness performs well and will be a satisfying purchase with a few caveats. The best thing about this harness is how light, and packable it is. Given its light design it is relatively comfortable, though I do prefer my other harness for working sport routes, or scenarios where I know I will be fully hanging in my harness for long periods of time. Its gear loops are nicely placed for sport climbing, however if loaded up with a rack of gear, the back loops are too close to the front and the gear becomes quite clustered. It is quite nice that it has ice clip loops, though I wish they were slightly back. The main problem I've had with this harness is that the thing piece of webbing that creates the "loop" below the belay loop on the leg strap pulled apart the 2nd or 3rd time I fell while climbing in this harness. This piece of webbing is certainly not apart of the structural strength, however it is nice at keeping the rope centered on the leg loop straps. Cheers.
