The standard in everyday harnesses

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had this harness for over 2 years now, and I love it. I've used it for everything, and I couldn't be happier. It looks good, functions like a champ and hasn't let me down yet. It's light enough to where it doesn't effect your performance, but you can also sit in it for a while and still have the ability to make children in the future. As far as a day-to-day gym harness, this in my opinion, is the perfect harness. It's cheap, easy to take off and on, durable, and moderately comfortable. If you're shopping around for your first harness and you see the BD Momentum at $45, don't buy it (like I did). I would say spend the extra $10 and save yourself the time spent doubling back your harness. It's totally worth it because after about 2 months of climbing in the gym, you will ask yourself "why am I dealing with this silly harness all of the time?". Be more comfortable, buy this harness and enjoy!

Great Harness

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This harness easy and great to use. I used this harness many times and I can't say enough that its pretty comfortable to leave it on. The loops are easy to adjust and you can get of of it pretty quickly. It is same concept like any modern harness with the belay loop and when you use a rope to tie it up. Also it is pretty light to be wearing it and holding it. For something this cheap, it's a good deal to get.

Simple, safe, and comfortable enough

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm on my second go-round with the Momentum, so obviously it works well enough for me. I primarily climb single-pitch stuff, which it's totally fine for, even if you're projecting something. The padding is minimal if I'm being generous, so if you spend a lot of time rappelling, hanging, or taking giant whippers, get something more comfortable.

Doesn't pinch!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got an awesome deal on one of these a while back and have been using it for any rope climbing I've been doing. Its super user friendly and doesn't pinch in any inconvenient places! No issues with durability either, really withstands good use (pulls and abrasions). Plenty of places to put different pieces of gear that may be necessary. For longer climbs I might consider changing to something a tad more comfy but sitting isn't climbing and unless you're sitting in it its barely noticeable.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've only used this harness a couple of times but I can say that it's very comfortable and easy to use. It's lightweight and very comfortable to wear too. I liked it so much I even bought my girlfriend the same harness and she has no issues with it. Good price for a good harness.

Its a beginner harness

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This harness isnt too comfortable to hang in for extended periods of time. The leg loops are easy to adjust along with the waist. The padding makes it a bit too stiff which cuts blood flow a bit when hanging. If your a beginner then this harness will get the job done. If your wanting to climb more then twice a week, pay the extra ten dollars and get the petzl sama. Its a much better harness and will be more enjoyable to use. I used this harness for a year before I got myself a Sama and wish I would have done it sooner, but then again Im a 5.12 climber and climb four times a week.

So if your a beginner and just climb for fun and wont be climbing more then two days a week, get this one and it will work great!

Gets the job done.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This harness is a standard harness that's adequate for gyms, crags, and multipitches. Not exactly the most comfortable one out there, but super long-lasting and durable. Four gear loops, adjustable leg loops, you can't go wrong.

Awesome Harness from Beginner to Vet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you want a harness that's comfortable, easy to get in and out of and has a pretty decent weight, then there is no reason not to get this guy. Sizing is spot on as well.

Hi, I have 30''-31'' (77-79cm) waist and there is no way i will have less then 30''. I would like to know Your opinions about size, because it will be my first harness. I tried M size and there is no way it will slip down of my hips.

Best Answer Responded on

Hey Ret, thanks for your question. With a 30-31" waist measurement I would suggest you get a medium. I have a 30" waist myself and I use a medium harness from Black Diamond.

Hey I just want to double check - sizing...

Posted on

Hey I just want to double check - sizing is pretty accurate on this harness, so for someone who wears a size 34 jeans, a Large (33"-36") is what I should be looking to pick up here, correct?

Best Answer Responded on

Hey Cap'in,

Sizing on this harness is pretty spot on. If you went with a size large you should be pretty happy with fit.

No fear

This will do everything you want and do it well! Tough harness. I mostly use this ice climbing but cranks hard on rock and mixed too! Another great piece from BD

Great Harness

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my first harness and I have been using it for about 6 months now and I absolutely love it! I did a lot of research and decision making beforehand and ended up going with the momentum speed harness. It's comfortable, the sizes are spot on, and it doesn't ride up like your traditional strap harness. If your torso is between sizes (mine is), it shouldn't be a big deal which way you go but I would suggest picked the smaller of the two as long as you don't plan on getting much bigger. Overall, the only real sign of wear is a bit of fraying in the belay loop, but it's very minimal. If you are looking for great bang for your buck, this is the right choice, which is probably why so many people at my school's gym have this. Hope this helps!

I love this harness!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have taken this harness everywhere. Indoor gym, outdoor sport, trad, top rope and Ice climbing! It goes where you go! I would recommend it!

Things is great!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My newest endeavor is rock climbing, and this harness has been right along during the whole thing! Fits well, works even better, if it didn't I wouldn't be here typing this message. haha

Love!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

I bought this for my boyfriend and he absolutely loves it! It's comfortable and his old harness didn't have a sling for a chalk bag on the back, but this one does - he didn't have to keep using his carabiner contraption to hold a chalk bag, ha! It's light weight and has comfortable padding

Great! Even If It's a Little Big!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this in the XL size because I thought it would be nice if a harness was too big over too small. I wish I would have bought the L now that I look back,(I have about a 35 waist) but this harness has done me good! This was my first harness, and since I bought it I have done some lead climbing in the gym and A TON of top rope over the past 3 or 4 months and this harness is holding up great. Since I mainly am gym climbing I can't myself squeezing every last ounce if weight out of my equipment, (considering most gym walls aren't terribly tall.) so this harness feels relatively light, although I haven't tried many other harnesses to compare but this one feels great to me. I am still a beginner so my opinion on this harness might not be as valid as for someone who has been climbing their whole life, but I hope this helps. Great beginner harness, does what i wanted it to do and more!
