Details

When heavy loads and overhanging pitches try to flip you upside-down, fight back with the Vario Chest Harness.

Use the Black Diamond Vario Chest Harness in conjunction with your regular harness to keep you upright when jugging a fixed line, aiding a roof, or rappelling with a heady load. Don't risk being flipped upside down because of a unique climbing situation, just clip the rope though the Vario to keep you upright. You can even use this chest harness to keep yourself upright in the event of a crevasse fall during glacier travel.

Good for what it is

    We use a couple of these at my work, and while we don't use it often at all, the simplicity of this chest harness is appreciated. Much like the BD vario speed harness, there is no padding but the webbing used is wide so applies pressure to a wider area. It's clear if you get it twisted and easy to tell if someone els has it on correctly. Not the most useful but it does the job in easy style.

    Simple and basic

      As the title says, the harness is not elaborate but does the job. The webbing is wide so it is more comfortable than using standard 1in webbing to make a chest harness. Black Diamond also makes quality gear so I expect this harness to standup to whatever I throw at it. The harness also has a great deal of adjustment and I have a large chest with a tall torso and was still able to get a good fit without any trouble. No tie-in for the back but it isn't needed. Using the tie-in in the front works perfectly well by itself.

      Could you use this as a simple harness to lower a person down a 10" cliff?
