Description

Climb year-round.

Climbing is a four-season sport. That's the philosophy behind Black Diamond's Aspect Harness. This year-round workhorse utilizes proprietary Dual Core XP Construction to keep weight down and comfort at a maximum. A bullhorn-shaped waistbelt keeps you snug and secure during hang sessions while you work a technical sequence.
  • Dual Core XP Construction utilizes an OpenAir waistbelt with separate bands of webbing and a supportive insert to combine breathability with pressure distribution
  • Pre-threaded Forged Speed Adjust waistbelt and leg loop buckles allow for quick adjustment and optimal fit
  • Four pressure-molded gear loops and 12 kN-rated haul loop complement four ice clipper slots to provide an array of racking options
  • Abrasion patches offer 20 times the durability of nylon for added longevity

Light weight and comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I am coming off an older Arcterx harness, which was a fairly minimalist design. This BD Aspect has been my first new harness in years, and so far so good. The waist belt has enough padding to remain comfortable all day, yet remains weight conscious. I really like having adjustable leg loops, as well. My legs are usually a bit bigger in the spring, coming off of ski season, and then go back to normal towards the middle of the summer. Also, I hope to be using this harness during the winter for some ski mountaineering missions, in which the adjustable leg loops will be quite nice. So far, this harness has been comfortable, easy to adjust, quick to get in and out of, and has kept me safe. Two thumbs up!

Love this harness

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This harness is well thought out and extremely comfortable for all day climbing. Easy to adjust on the fly. A go to for a do it all harness. Feels very secure.

Versatility for my needs

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I don't climb enough to need a specific harness for each season, so this harness really hits the sweet spot for me. I am also a fan of the new BD designs, the build quality is great.

Back problems solved.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I used to climb in Singing Rock harnesses which ended up giving me lower back pain every time I whipped. I decided to switch companies after a while and Black Diamond does the trick with the Aspect. It's a simple design but gives you the durability and usefulness that you want out of a harness. Definitely true to size for me. Great for technical sport climbing.

well priced winter harness

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got this harness at the start of this ice season and I am very pleased with it. The ice clipper slots are well placed and won't rip ( like the ones on my blizzard did). I got the large and it is bottomed out, but with warm layers on it is not a problem since I have another harness for summer climbing and what-not. I don't prefer to have an "all season" harness because the needs of climbing very so much from February to August.
I bought the men's version and it works just fine for me.

This Harness truly does it all!!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Being newish to climbing , this is my first harness because i was unsure what style of climbing i was going to pursue the most so i wanted something that would do it all. i wanted to avoid having to buy different harnesses for different styles of climbing, and this harness has done just that.

the ice clipper slots were what made my decision final on buying this harness. if you find yourself needing more gear loops you can purchase an ice clipper or 2 (up to 4) and increase your rack size. this is great for trad and ice climbing. then in the gym when you want a smaller rack you simply remove the ice clipper(s). i love the ice clipper because it allows you to rack gear that would otherwise need a carabiner to rack (things such as, un used belay devices, nut tools, 8 rings, exc.) i dont see the need to carry 3 extra carabiners to rack those things, plus the things can't swing around as much on an ice clipper as opposed to a carabiner on a gear loop.

i love the haul loop (i prefer to rack a chalk bag with the haul loop, its more comfortable for me)

the rear gear loop is a nice place to put items you dont need during an ascent.

i love having the ability to fully undo the waist and leg loops so its easier to put on over winter clothing on with crampons on.

the comfort is great, although this is my only harness to compare with, it fits to the body and has no pressure points that dig in over time.

overall if you are unsure of what climbing you are going to get into, i would get this because it does it all and you wont need to buy a new harness for a new style of climbing you didn't think you were going to do.

What is the difference between this Harness...

What is the difference between this Harness and the Ozone harness besides the price?

Responded on

The main difference is that the Ozone does not have adjustable leg loops.

Responded on

The Ozone is a little bit lighter and it also doesn't feature a haul loop on the back.

Favorite Alpine Harness

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This thing packs up nice and small for alpine climbing. I find the padding a bit thin for hanging belays or lots of hang dogging, but for Alpine climbing it's great. Nice and compact, good gear loops that are low and out of the way of backpack hip belt.

Droppable leg loops FTW

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had this harness for about 2 years, and I've spent a lot of time climbing a lot of things in it. It's good, it's comfortable, it's durable - I was content. Then I snapped my ankle in half 100 ft up on the wall, and in the 7 hours between the fall and the ambulance, I noted two things. 1) It is really, really comfortable, even as I was dangling on the side of a cliff for a very long time. 2) Droppable leg loops. They're worth the extra $$$. When the very kind ER doctor tried to cut off my harness, I was able to simply undo it and salvage what little of my dignity was still intact.
Moral of the story: This is a great harness. It saves your life. And your dignity.

Does it all...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This a great harness for those that do it all. Fully adjustable accommodates winter layers or shirtless summer climbs. This is the second aspect I have had and I love the improvements from the old model. The new gear loop in the back is the best! I rack everything I need for the belay back there and it keeps the other loops open for pro. You can even throw your shoes back there for the walk off and you won't know you had them till you need them. My only complaint is the gear loops seem to set farther back that they were in the past which is a bit annoying . But it's a small price to pay for a sick harness.

Good for just about all.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this harness a few months ago. It's been great for just about any terrain. I'm not much of a huge multi-pitch climber, so I can't attest to the product's comfort on long routes. However, I have done a number of 2 pitch sport climbs and can say that I never had any discomfort concerning the harness. It's fast, easy, and built with BD love at a great price.
