    Victory over gravity.

    CAMP made the Blitz Harness to give mountaineers all the tools they need for a big climb. You get four gear loops to hold your entire kit, a comfortable but minimalistic waist belt that won't get in the way, and easily dropable leg loops for, well, you know.
    • Diaper-design allows this harness to be put on while wearing crampons
    • Low-profile gear loops feel comfortable under a backpack's waist belt
    • Ultralight design keeps pack weight low on the approach
    • Item #CMP0219

    Nah...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I was hoping that this would be the ultimate alpine harness. It checked all the boxes; lightweight, adjustable leg loops, "diaper" style for easy donning and doffing in crampons, and 4 real gear loops. Not to mention it was much cheaper and better on paper than all of the other options!

    Unfortunately, mine fell apart after two climbs. Both were fast/light alpine rock climbs with minimal rack, no hanging, and only a few raps; pretty easy job for a harness. Mine developed two large holes in the padding where the gear loops attached during the second climb. While not necessarily structural in nature, I'm not a fan of climbing in a harness with holes in it. One of the gear loops eventually failed at the end of the second climb, dropping a few cams. Luckily I was very close to the ground when it happened.
    This same scenario happened to another friend of mine with this harness, except he lost half his rack mid-climb. Bummer.

    If you're still thinking about getting one, be warned; the sizing of these are super weird. I have a 33in waist, so I went with the larger size. WAY too big. With a few pieces of gear racked, the thing was literally falling down while I was climbing, and it was tightened as far as it would go. I tried on the smaller size and could barely fit into it wearing jeans and a t-shirt. It's unfortunate that if you're averaged size, you're not going to fit in this thing well.

    So a pretty bad experience in all with this harness. I was pretty bummed that it literally fell apart after 2 easy climbs. CAMP was great and replaced it with another harness for no charge; 5 stars for customer service.

    Perfect fit.

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

    Purchased this as a gift. He says it is super comfortable and easy to put on and doesn't get in the way.

    He has only had the chance to use it once so far, but I will report back as he provides more details.

    Great Alpine Harness

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this harness for the mountains, and it is fantastic at that! It is comfortable, doesn't hinder movement, has sufficient gear loops, and is so easy to get on/off. The ability to put it on without even picking up your feet is ideal for the mountains when you are already wearing crampons/skis. I leave the leg loops unclipped when skinning or climbing low angle terrain and there's no hinderance on my stride, just gotta remember to re-clip before tying in.

    It actually does alright with sport/trad climbing as well. I wouldn't recommend it for that, but its not too uncomfortable to hang in for an alpine harness. It's certainly a step above the other alpine options (bod, alpine bod, couloir, etc.).

    If you're looking for a alpine specific harness, this is the one.

    Unanswered Question

    What is the weight of the size 2 and how...

    What is the weight of the size 2 and how small does it pack down to? i.e. does it include a stuff sack like the BD Couloir that it fits in.

    I'm thinking about this size. There are 2...

    I'm thinking about this size. There are 2 sizes in Japan. Please give me the size of this harness in details.
