Simple, versatile, and comfortable.
Black Diamond kept the design for its Bod Harness simple so you can take it out sport climbing, trad climbing, mountaineering, canyoneering, or even alpine climbing. It's an excellent starter harness that doesn't bust your bank when you're looking to get into the vertical world, and you can even get it as a second harness for when a friend or family member is looking to join you on your adventures. Its nylon webbing is incredibly durable and stays strong for many years, and the fleece padding provides the soft support any beginner begs for while they hang off the wall. Four gear loops and a sturdy haul loops gives all the space you need for any vertical adventure whether it's in a gym or out on a multipitch big wall.

Can the Black diamond Bod harness be used...
Can the Black diamond Bod harness be used as a zip line harness? The zip line is 350 feet and 20 feet high.
The Black Diamond Bod harness is a full-strength climbing harness that can be used for a zip line. Often though, zip liners prefer to also use a chest harness to keep them upright, check out the Black Diamond Vario as well: http://www.backcountry.com/black-diamond-vario-chest-harness?ti=U2VhcmNoIFJlc3VsdHM6Y2hlc3QgaGFybmVzczoxOjI6Y2hlc3QgaGFybmVzcw
It absolutely can be, but keep in mind it's not very comfortable. Granted, you won't be hanging on the line for very long, but this harness is intended for alpine climbing where your weight is rarely fully supported. It's definitely strong enough, but it might be worth it to spend a little more on something with padding like the Momentum AL (http://www.backcountry.com/black-diamond-momentum-al-climbing-harness).
