    Also a newbie

      I purchased this harness after using my friend's. It's very comfortable and suits my needs as a beginner climber. I actually bought it in a package with a chalk bag, belay device, chalk sock and carabiner. It was so affordable, especially for someone just starting out. I don't think you can go wrong with this purchase if you are just starting.

      Ideal harness for entry level

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times


      Great entry level sport climbing harness. Comfortable and easy to adjust. We've have used it on a couple top ropes and lead climbs. Feels great and fits well. For the price, it is well worth it.

      Solid Harness

        I purchased this as my 14 year old daughters second harness. It is easy to get on and off, the speed adjust is awesome. She loves it and finds it to be really comfortable. I think the adjustable leg loops are a must for ladies.

        Easy and Comfortable

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        I picked this up as a gift for my sister and she really loves it. She has to use harnesses for work at the climbing wall where she works and says they are dreadfully uncomfortable. We looked around and decided to go with this harness due to its ease of use and the fact that she only uses it inside on the wall.

        She loves the harness and says that it is way better than the harnesses her work provides and is super comfy, that it basically seems like nothing is there at all.

        Popular for a Reason

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This harness is a great way to start of (and progress with) your new climbing career--comfortable, adjustable (ahhh for the legs), reputable, and at a price that leaves enough for the shoes and chalkbag. Get after it!

        Great First Climbing Harness

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I am still pretty new to climbing I picked it up in Squamish one year when we had a terrible winter (aka no snow). Anyways I started top roping and picked up this harness when I felt like I needed to stop borrowing my buddies gear. This is awesome! Its sturdy and durable and easy to use. I use is outdoors and in gyms. Looking to start sport climbing soon and I think this guy will hold up!

        Great gym harness

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I got this harness as more of a backup harness, but end up using it all the time. It's more comfortable than I expected and the speed adjust leg loops are easy to use. The downside of the speed adjust is that there's a bit less play with how you want the harness to fit, which is why I mostly just use it in the gym, where I'm not sitting in it for hours on end.

        Passing it on

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

        When I first started to climb I got this harness as my first harness and I loved it. As my climbing progressed I found that I needed different things that this harness could not give. My friend just started climbing and I felt that it was only appropriate to get her this harness to start out with. This harness not only is great to learn on it's comfy and looks super cute. The harness runs true to size and I would highly recommend it for any beginner that wants to learn the ropes!

        Hi Jane,

        I'm curious what features you needed in a more advanced harness that the Primrose couldn't provide? I am pretty new to climbing, but am going indoor and outdoor and don't want to have to buy a new harness next year because a needed feature is missing. Thank you! -Jen

        Hey Jennifer S.

        For long ascents on big wall, weight is a huge issue. I needed something lighter. The waist belt and leg loops are thicker on the primrose than on my own harness which adds weight when I already have to pull up all the gear I need for my climb.

        The gear loops are great but on mine they are angled so that every time I pull a quick draw off the next one slides down the loop to be closer to my hand so I'm not having to worry or look for my next draw. Also, it's just personal preference, but I don't like adjustable leg loops they are just one more thing to fiddle with and I find them uncomfortable.

        These are minor things if you are not big wall climbing so it's not an incredibly important feature that made me change harnesses I just had different needs for the type of climbing that I wanted to do. This harness is an awesome all around harness for beginner to intermediate climbers. I hope that this answer is helpful and if you need any more help please feel free to reach out to us.

        Cheers!

        Sizing runs small, measure where it sits

        • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

        Ordered a size small since I have a 28" waist and 28 jean size (and was still in middle of size small waist range (27"-30"); I wear a size 4 to 6, but have a longer torso at 5'8", 145 pounds.
        Measure exactly where the harness will be sitting and use that measurement, well below the natural waist, as the waist measurement against their size chart. Had only a single inch of belt double-backed through on the waist belt, 8 inches of unpadded belt on lower torso when sitting at the right place, and would have carved out an organ in any long take sessions for the size small. Could fit thigh muscles through legs, barely, on size small.

        Got a medium instead and fits much better both in waist (less than two inches of unsupported belt against me) and legs (can tighten, a tiny bit).

        Hoping I can upgrade rating to 4 stars after I get to test it out soon.

        Solid First Harness

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I've been climbing in my Primrose for well over a year now, mostly top-roping, both indoors and out.

        It's a fantastic first harness. Super comfortable (I've kept it on for hours at a time with no issues), easy on and off, pretty customizable fit. Since I've only just started to learn how to lead/sport climb, I don't know how this harness does with a full rack, but the gear loops seem sturdy and substantial.

        I docked one star because of sizing, but it's probably more a reflection on me than the harness itself. It seems like I'm between a medium and a large, with the medium being way too small. I bought the large, but in order for it to fit the way I want, I have to cinch it to maximum tightness. I've been losing weight thanks to climbing, and it's getting to the point where my large might be too big, but the medium might still be too small. I wish there were some middle ground. The large is either sized too big, or the medium too small, I don't know which.

        The good news about the larger size is that I can wear this harness over several layers of clothes, as I did a few weeks ago when I went climbing outdoors in December.

        Sizing issues aside, I highly recommend this harness for people who are getting into climbing. I'll eventually upgrade, but I'm in no rush.

        best harness around

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

        bought this as a gift, and she loves it. she said it fits great and feels great to wear while climbing. the colors are a awesome as well!

        Solid Harness

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I'm a newbie and was recommended this harness. The sizing is a little large but otherwise the harness is comfortable. Nothing digs in and I have plenty of "space" to attached gear, chalk, etc. Plus, the color is awesome! Good first harness purchase!

        Awesome upgrade

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

        I bought this for a friend as a birthday present. She had a unisex harness she bought at her local gym and wanted to upgrade to something more comfortable. Here is what she had to say:

        "I switched from a unisex harness to the Primrose and have loved the improved fit and comfortability. I wear a size 6 in pants and bought a size small in the harness and it fits great. The leg loops hardly ever need re-adjusting, and the hip belt is super easy to get on and off. The unisex harness pinched in weird places while on the wall, but the Primrose is light and fits me so well that it never moves around or pinches me. As compared to the unisex harness, the Primrose is very light and streamlined without any unnecessary weight. The only downside to this harness would be that it can’t be as easily shared because its not as widely adjustable as many unisex harnesses are. Also, the blue color is also really nice. Really excited to really put this harness through the wringer! " -Abby

        Works great - sizing could be better

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This is my first harness. Has been great so far! Comfortable, fits well, no problems! I typically wear a size 6 pants, and bought the small. Small is just a tiny bit on the small side, but the medium i tried on was a tiny bit on the big side.

        Satisfied Newbie

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I’m writing this review after a month of indoor climbing. I climbed one day with a rental harness and immediately went home and ordered my own. This is the first harness I've owned, so the rental is all I can compare it to. It's comfortable and trusty, so I'm happy with it. I wear a size 6/8 pant and got a small--with my hips it takes a little dancing to get on, but fits well despite my larger thighs (the leg openings have some elastic that lets you tighten the leg without cutting off circulation) and smaller waist. I like the grey/teal combo of the “Smoke.”

        If I get this harness and it ends up not fitting, is there a return policy so I can get a different size?

        Hey Krista:



        Yep! We accept new, unused items any time for a refund or you can return used gear within 30 days of delivery for store credit. The BD Primrose was my first harness and I highly recommend it to all lady climbers out there.



        Happy climbing!

        I am right at a 30 in waist. I tried on the M in a store and it fit but was tightened as tight as could be and still felt slightly loose. Would you recommend sizing down to a S? They didn't have a small at the store I could try on.

        Unanswered Question

        Nr two review (Jenn W) shows picture of gear. My twelve year old daughter is very in to colours, and the harness on that picture is with purple ; would that be the smoke version ? Not easy to see on the discription pictures.

        So, I'm fairly new to climbing and quickly realizing that owning your own gear is the way to go. This harness seems like the perfect choice for me to start with. However, measurements wise, my waist puts me at a medium and my legs put me at a large. Any recommendations on which way I should buy?

        I would definitely fit the waist, so go with the medium. The legs should have some adjust-ability and work for you. If it does not you may need to bump up to a little pricier harness like the http://www.backcountry.com/black-diamond-lotus-harness-womens?ti=UExQIENhdDpDbGltYmluZyBIYXJuZXNzZXM6MToxMjpiY3NDYXQ4MTEwMDAyOTQ&skid=BLD3365-FIG-XS which offers more adjust-ability in the legs.
