AWESOME all around choice

This is an absolutely fabulous choice for all around climbing. The fit is very easily customized- and the Speed Adjust leg loops are really that- speedy! Easy to wear over bulky clothes or something slim because you can get that customized fit so quick. The gear loops are sturdy so far, I haven't had any issues hauling gear. I also really like that this model has a haul loop. Overall, the harness is quite comfortable as well- for climbing, belaying, rapping, or just walking around. As far as sizing goes, I am a slim lady- 5'2, 115lbs, I generally wear a 25 in my pants, and the size Small is my jam. Hands down would recommend this harness!

Great all-around harness

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use this harness for climbing indoors and out, including all-day trad. It's sturdy and comfortable, for belaying, climbing and rapelling.

The gear loops really hold up against all the stuff I carry for trad. I've really put it through the ringer but it's not showing much wear at all (plenty of dirt though).

The only time this harness is uncomfortable is if I have a heavy pack on with it, and it gets pushed down by backpack waist straps into my hips bones. It's a tradeoff for the lighter padding that keeps my waist from getting too hot during summer weather. And the leg loops fit true to size as well, and I've never had a problem with them riding up or otherwise not staying in place.

A word about sizing: this is pretty true to size. I was at the small end of the Small size, which is what I bought, and I have to cinch the waist all the way to get it to fit properly. It would be easier if I had a size down, but this way I can layer up underneath the harness if I'm climbing in chillier weather with a few extra layers.

For ice climbing I have a more specialized (and slightly larger sized) harness; I wouldn't take this out for ice or mixed, but for rock it's a great choice!

hmm...

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

After reading reviews I was debating if this would have plastic pieces on the front... Upon delivery low and behold, it did have plastic adjustment straps...
at first I was kinda pissed off, but then upon further inspection, it seems totally safe (why the hell would BD sell something that wasn't??) as they only adjust elastic WITHIN the webbing of the legloops, so if they ever do break this thing should still do its job.
But thats just my first impression... just something to be aware of... its also super comfortable and I really look forward to using it more!

First Harness & Happy

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

I purchased this harness based off of the reviews below and high community rating - I am glad I did. I am 5'4" with a 26" waist, and got a S. I tighten the waist all the way, but do not think I would want the leg loops any smaller. Overall, the harness is super comfortable and I look forward to wearing it in!

Great for the Beginner

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

A cool friend/significant other get you addicted to rock climbing? Tired of those nasty, uncomfortable rental harnesses? Want to take your climbing to the next level? Buy this harness! I have been climbing for about 6 months now, and I absolutely love this harness. I was a total beginner when I started but wanted a harness that was comfortable and safe enough to help me step up my rock climbing skills. This is it! Love it. Inexpensive, functional, comfortable, stylish, has enough gear loops, etc. I am fairly tall, 6'0" to be exact, and I was in between sizes. I am a 29"/30" waist, so I didn't know if I should get the M or L. I got the M and it fits great! The L would have been too big and the S too small for my volleyball-player thighs haha. I synch it all the way in the waist, but I definitely needed the M for the leg loop sizing. Very adjustable to your body! Buy this. You'll be happy you did.

Lead climbing? NO PROBLEM!

Climb ON!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had this harness for about 4 months now and it's pretty cool! It's light-weight easy to put on, take off and adjust. BAM! You are on the wall in seconds. I would totally recommend this harness for beginner to intermediate climbers. It’s a perfect harness to progress in because you don’t have to worry about fiddling or adjusting with this bad girl! You can just focus on the climb.
My only “complaint” and I use that term lightly is the adjustable leg loops are nice but you really have to synch them down for them to not ride up. Synching them down like that can cause less blood flow so your legs can start to become tired faster. So if you were planning on doing multi pitches or trad climbing I wouldn’t recommend this harness. But if you are just starting and want to become more aggressive, this harness will help you progress! I love this harness it has been through a lot I got my first multi pitch in it and my first lead climb and I think that it works for what it is. I am 27 in the waist and I got the XS and it’s hard to get over my hips (because I’m a bit wider there) but it fits my waist perfectly. If you have any questions about this harness you can get a hold of me via our life help feature and just ask for Jane H.

Climb ON!

Hey fellow Amy!
At the top of the product page, underneath where you can select the different sizes there is a little blue link that says "Size?" Click on that and it will help you out! I own this harness in a medium and I'm about a size 4-6 in pants.

Suggested this harness because it was so much like my momentum harness. Turns out its just as great.

Two chalky thumbs up!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm a beginner and have been climbing for a little over a month now, and this harness has been absolutely perfect for me! It's so comfortable and fits perfectly. Black Diamond's sizing (http://www.backcountry.com/Store/content/sizingChart.jsp?chartId=720&categoryId=bcsCat811000294) is spot on too. I checked my measurements and ordered an extra small, which is exactly what I needed.

I tried a few different harnesses, from some older Black Diamond models to some other ones I rented from the climbing gym. I eventually was given the Primrose to rent one day and fell in love. It's SO comfy and fits so well! Definitely felt best wearing this.

I was looking at getting either this Primrose or Black Diamond's Siren for my first harness. I ultimately decided on this one, since it's more versatile, allowing me to not only sport climb, but also eventually do some trad climbing as well. Additionally, I know someone with a Siren harness, and she's always complaining that there isn't a haul loop in the back like there is on the Primrose.

All around very happy with this harness! :)
