Write your question here...Are the black diamond Bod Harness' ANSI rated

Best Answer Responded on

Greg, let me guess: you are an engineer? ANSI is a north american rating that refers to temp and pressure (but you already know this). Climbing harnesses need to be tested for by newtons (units of force). So, I dont think you find any climbing harness that is ANSI rated. They however are CEN rated. This is a governing body that regulated specific manufacturing standards. If you are looking for a climbing harness this will do, if you are looking for an OSHA harness (while they are way less secure)...keep looking.
