Great price to quality ratio

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This harness won't break the bank nor will it break your back. Super comfortable and can be easily adjusted. Great for sport climbing (indoor and out)

No news is good news.

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

Bought it as a gift for a my sister's first real climbing trip, and I didn't hear anything about it, which must mean that it was solid, right?

Yup! Great Buy! Great Harness!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Happy with this harness. Absolutely does the trick for an incredible price! I'm 115 lbs, 5ft, 26 waist. Purchased a small, fits great. I climb mostly indoors. This harness would be just fine for outdoor climbing as well.

Basic, does the trick

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I purchased this harness for sport (gym and outdoors), and single pitch trad routes to give my Lotus (also made by BD) some rest days. It's very basic, lightweight and super comfortable. I wouldn't take this little guy on an all day/multi-day/alpine route , but for the money, I am very satisfied. The design is great, and the stitches are grade A solid. No complaints.

Wonderful Harness!

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

I've used many harnesses in the past and have to say how much I've loved this one so far! I am 5'6" and 125 and the small fits like a glove! The leg "slide" tighteners are so easy to use and stay tight the entire climb, which I was worried about initially. The only thing I didn't realize from buying online was the fact that you have to double back the waist strap. It's not an issue at all as there is plenty of strap, just a note that it isn't an "auto lock" buckle. I don't do much lead climbing but there are plenty of loops to hook your gear to for that!

It's PURPLE!

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

I've been using this harness for a few weeks now and love it so far. I'm 5'8" and 120 and the Small fits me perfectly. It's super comfortable but more importantly it's purple and adorable. ;) I thought the little plastic slides on the leg straps would be flimsy but I haven't been bothered by them a bit.

Great deal

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I was worried buying this harness that I would be annoyed by having to double back the waist loop as I have had the automatically double backed one for a while. I actually really like it, and it doesn't take but a few extra seconds.

Great price (got it on sale for about $37), very comfortable and light.

Like it!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm fairly new to climbing, and admittedly, I have only used a couple of harnesses ever, so I really don't have much of a basis for comparison. That being said, I really like my harness and it's incredibly comfortable.
Sizing: I'd say it's true very to size, with very little wiggle room in either direction. That would probably be my only complaint about the harness itself, which really isn't a problem at all unless you gain or lose 15 or more lbs.

Overall, a nice little harness at a great price!

Solid Harness

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This was my first harness I purchased and I think it's a great one. If you're just getting into climbing or have been climbing for a while I think you'll be as pleased with it's performance as I was. My waist is around 32 in and the medium fits me just right. The adjustable leg loops are great and it's makes it easy not have to worry about double backing them. It's also a plus that it has a haul loop. I didn't realize how much I needed one until I bought a harness that didn't have one! The cushioning is nice and great for those all day climbs. It fits most body types very well and the only difference between these and the guy version is the womens primrose has smaller leg loops.

Good harness but...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

A woman I go climbing with just bought the Primrose a few weeks ago. During a fall on a dyno route one of the speed adjust buckles on the leg loop snapped in half. The metal bracket holding the straps together on the front of the thigh maintained, it was just the plastic tightener buckle that broke. Kind of a bummer that they'd use plastic buckles for the leg loops when the rest are metal.

She's going to talk to BD to see what can be done. I own the BD Momentum AL which is the male version of this harness and I personally have never had problems with the leg buckles.

They changed the leg buckles form metal holdbacks to plastic? Thanks for the warning(mine is from 2011) If I wanted the zip buckles, I'd get the SA.

Small bladder? Stay away.

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This was my first harness, I bought it for indoor climbing. At first I loved it. It came at a great price and does what it's supposed to. However, once I started climbing outdoors on hot summer days (which involves drinking more water) I hated removing the double backed hip belt. If you have a small bladder like me, I would recommend either buying a "Go Girl" or sticking with a speed adjust hip belt.

You can detach the legs loops on mine(2011)

Not what I expected

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Ordered this for my sister for her birthday, she climbs indoors. Guess I didn't realize it was a double backed harness making it harder to put on than other harnesses so I had to return. Heard this kind is good for long trips/multi pitches where the tightness around the waist can come loose

What are the measurements for the primrose?...

Fits perfect! Easy to use and comfy!

Perfect

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Comfortable, easy to use/adjust on the thighs. I've been using mine for two years (bought it on here) and I'll likely buy another one when this one is done for.

Awesome value

Great first harness. Ordered this for my wife's sister because she has started climbing with us on a fairly regular basis. She loves it.

Awesome value

Good first harness

Picked this up as a gift. The harness fits her perfectly, but also has several adjustment points for fine-tuning if necessary. It's also very light and packs down nice and small in its mesh storage sack. All around great harness for women getting into the sport.

Responded on

The older version of this harness is the one I started on! It served me well for years, so well done on grabbing this one for the lady, John! Climb on!

Responded on

Great starter harness, I agree. It was my first too.

Great Harness

Used this harness for mostly sport climbing and is a great harness for someone getting into the sport. The adjustable leg straps allows the user to really dial it to their specifications.

I'm a dude, and this harness rocks

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This harness is just awesome. It's comfy, light, and very inexpensive. This should be every climber girl's first harness.
