Great for Beginners
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This kit is a great place to start for anyone interested in climbing. It offers all the standard pieces of equipment and is very reasonably priced. I have been using this kit for several years and have no complaints.
Overall Good "kit"
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
At first I was only sent the harness and not the entire kit. With that being said one call to Backcountry and they quickly took care of the problem by sending a comparable Mad Rock chalk bag and belay device. Overall, this is a good set up for getting started in climbing.
Great starter kit
I have a soft spot in my heart for Mad Rock as they made everything I used as a beginner. Quality is not the best on their shoes, but this kit will last you for years - and if you are in the harness enough to worry about it not being the most comfy on the market than you've earned an upgrade. As a bonus, I prefer MR chalkbags to anything else out there. This kit is a great way to gear up on the cheap if you're getting into gym climbing or starting to venture outside. The only thing it is missing is a full strength haul loop, which you probably only would use as a beginner if you find yourself setting up a top-managed belay in areas where you have to belay topropers from above.
It comes with a bag to pack all the gear into. Here it's shown next to a nalgene bottle.
Great intro kit
I bought this kit a couple of years ago and found it great for starting to get into climbing. The value is phenomenal and it's served me well. Highly recommended for beginners.
You get what you pay for with this one. The description and use are both accurate. I dont climb too often but this will hold me over for what i do and/or i get to climbing more!
Great set up... Plus the price is right.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I was a little worried when bought this set for my son because Mad rock has a bad reputation in my area but this purchase has changed my mind about Mad rock. The harness is good quality. The belay device is big and heavy but nothing to worry about. the chalk bag is a little tight for big hands like mine but still usable. Over all the set is a good value.
Good way to start
Just started out with this. The harness fits well, true to size. The Chalk bag came with a separate belt and everything came packed in a mesh bag. Looking for everything you need to get started climbing? This will do the trick.
No size guide - what waist size is a large?...
No size guide - what waist size is a large? I am a 35-36 inch waist so will that work for me? This seems like a sweet initial set-up for a newbie...
You'll be much happier off with the Black Diamond Package http://www.backcountry.com/black-diamond-momentum-sa-package
It's $30 more, but the harness is far more comfortable with superior gear loops. You're going to spend a good amount of time in your harness, it's worth the investment. The Belay device from BD is comparable, but better in my opinion, smoother and maybe a little easier to use. The carabiner is far superior, and the chalk bag is a chalk bag.
In terms of size, I would go for a large in either case. Size L fits waists size 33-36 inches.
Got this to start climbing. Not huge into climbing yet but definitely would like to get more into it. This comes with most everything except shoes and rope to get you started. So far so good as it does the job and the price was right!
So far, so good!
Picked this package up for a trip to North Wash, south of Hanksville, UT. 2 full days and 4 canyons later, it held up and was comfortable for every rappel. Haven't taken it out actually climbing yet, just on this canyoneering trip so far. Adjustable leg loops were a big selling point for me, so I can wear these with shorts while climbing or over a dry suit and any other bulk in the cold canyon waters. Biner and belay device are as good as any other and at this price, definitely a must have for any expedition that requires these goods.
Blarney Canyons, North Wash
Great for Starting Out
This package came with everything I needed to get started and at a price ($70) that that I could recoup after just a month or two of not having to rent at the rock gym. I started climbing a few months ago in a class that provided the equipment, so this was an inexpensive way to continue climbing. I don't have much to compare with, but the chalk bag seems great- closes well but opens big enough that my hands can easily get in and out. The buckles on the leg straps of the harness are a little strange in that they tend to twist slightly (maybe a quarter turn) but I'd say it still plenty comfortable and metal buckles have a nice finished that makes them seem hardy and resistant to corrosion. Some un-pictured bonuses- a mesh bag for the harness, a separate belt for the chalk bag (for bouldering I guess), and a mesh backpack to hold everything. I'm loving it so far...
what was the cost of this package..since...
what was the cost of this package..since it is currently out of stock?
I paid $69.90.
Im looking to buy a medium. Anbody know...
Im looking to buy a medium. Anbody know when they will be in stock?
I've been climbing for a couple months now and this package is perfect. ATC harness chalkbag and biner is great.
I guess you can say its good for beginner and really good harness. But i wouldn't recommend to keep the harness for too long. The ATC is so good its practically auto locking but still need to keep your break hand on the rope! The ATCis not the greatest brand but for BD's your basically paying for the brand anyways
So if you're just starting to climb and don't have much gear get this and all you need is the shoes
