    Have questions about this product?

    Ideal only for a 20" waist??

    • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it

    My gripe with this harness is regarding the sizing. We bought it for my 8 year old daughter who weighs 68 pounds, thinking it would be perfect since she is right in the middle of the claimed range that it fits: 35-110 pounds. I don't know why they can't tell you a waist size range.
    At its smallest setting it is around 20". At its largest setting (keep in mind that it says the end of the strap must be 3" past the buckle for safety reasons) it is about 26". I don't see how a 110 pound person could possibly have <= 26" waist unless they are VERY, VERY tall and slender.
    Although that range technically "fits" her, the problem is that with this type of single-buckle adjustment, it is really only centered correctly on the waist if it is at its SMALLEST setting. Once you start opening it more than that the center of the back and the center of the front start to get significantly misaligned. Opened all the way, it's nowhere near symmetrical, leaving the center of the back very close to the right hip. Looks pretty silly and I can't imagine the support is correct at that point.
    I would honestly say that the workable waist range is more like 20-22".
    For reference, my daughter has about a 24" waist. We ended up getting her the Primrose XS which fits her waist. The leg loops are slightly too big but it seems way better suited for her size.

    Good for growing

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

    I bought this for my 4 1/2 year old and it barely adjusts small enough to fit her, which is great because it will fit her for a while. Plenty of room to grow. She is tall and skinny for her age and the tightest setting is perfect for her.

    Quality build - just like adult versions

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    We looked at the few different kid's options that we could find. Although there aren't many, it seemed the most popular were this and the Petzl full body harness. We chose this for several reasons.



    This harness is constructed just like the adult Momentum and Primrose harnesses that my wife and I use - padding, ventilation, trakFit leg loop adjustment, Speed Adjust waist buckle and so on. This little harness is well built.



    As your kid grows, they may or may not want to move out of a full body harness to be like the "big kids". This harness will be great as our child gets older and becomes more advanced. She was 5 last year when we first put her in this harness and at the bottom of the weight limit (35lbs). She will get many more years of use out of this harness.



    Our daughter climbs both outdoors and in the gym. She spent a week this summer at a climbing class. She has never complained of any discomfort from this harness and loves it.



    I would definitely recommend this harness to a friend without hesitation.

    Quality build - just like adult versions

    Comfy but lacking a few features

      My son decided he wanted to be a big boy and ditch his full body Petzl. We had him try on this and the Edelrid Finn. The Finn was great because the waist was adjustable, meaning his tie in point was always centered. It also had a sliding buckle, meaning putting it on and adjusting it was much faster. Unfortunately the color scheme and padding were the downfalls.



      That's where the Wiz Kid comes in. It has enormous amounts of padding, making it comfortable to hang in for a long time. It also has a better color to it, two options (instead of unisex), and has 'cool' gear loops.



      4/5 because it could be better with a sliding waist belt and sliding adjust buckle.

      Great kids harness in a great look

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      My kids were getting so sick of the full body Petzl harness (although that was a very safe alternative for them when they were smaller). They were super excited and fired up about an adult looking and performance harness. They find it comfortable and I find it safe.

      Great harness

      • Familiarity:I've used it several times

      Bought this for my 7 year old daughter and it works great. She loves it and is so proud! It is easy for her to get on and it looks like it will fit her for may years still. She is smaller than average for her age.

      Great first harness...

        Bought this for 6 & 7 year old and first climbing and rappelling sessions...very comfortable, durable and the doubleback closure ensures security on closure/tightening...no complaints as to fit, comfort or the like...will get several years wear and tear for sure..

        Great harness for kids

          Works exactly as advertised. Good quality and fit. Highly recommended. I can find no faults with this harness, the kids love it, and the price is right. Nice piece of beginner equipment, fits my nine year old perfectly and seems like she will have at least two or three more years with it.

            Kids harness black diamond wiz kids

              She's 52 lbs. if I feed her any more it will not fit much longer, one size fits " few" not all- best bet on kids girls harness's go XS womens you will get many years of growth out of it, Wiz kid Harness is made well and is adjustable to some extent, if your lil boulder baby loves Placsti'n and the rocks go womens small, other than that- outstanding product if you want to replace it next season. Kids grow fast when they eat plenty of vegetables!

              Unanswered Question

              Waist size is shown; what is the size of legloops ?
              Waist from 56-66 cm, kg's from 16-50, legs from ??-??
              Having two daughters 9 and 12 ! 12 has waist 62cm, legs 42cm, weight 29 kg's ! 9 has waist 60 cm, legs 38 cm, weight 26,5 kg's ! Was thinking of maybe primrose XS for the oldest since it gives her a few more cm to grow, and the 43 cm legs will soon be there; but the primrose is shown as an adult harness, does it matter ? We are new in this game so need advice !
              Many thanks ๐Ÿ˜€

              I am looking to buy some harnesses for a...

              I am looking to buy some harnesses for a summer camp rock wall. They need to fit a pretty wide range of kids between ages 9 and 12.



              What size and age range will the wiz kid harness be able to fit?

              This harness will work for most kids in that age range. The adjustable leg loops are a good feature for multiple users as well. You may come across some 12 year old's who will not fit in a kids harness so I would recommend getting a couple(depending on how many kids) of adult ones either in a small, medium or both.

              We are having a church play and would like suspend in air two Angels (a little boy and girl under fifty pounds) can I use this to hold them, and if so can they flip upside down.

              You'll probably be better off with a full body harness, the resting position in a standard climbing harness is a seated position, and you can't safely attach a line to the back of this, not very angelish. However, if you have some other configuration worked out this harness is great, you can flip kids through the air in all directions and this thing'll held them.
