Good fit, Replacing MTN-ing Harness

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

Been looking for a multi-role & a good fitting mountaineering harness. Lays flat, generous gear loops & does not interfere with a loaded pack, simple + safe buckle - Found all that it in Adjama 2.

Need to update the rear loops

  • Gender: Male

This is my second Adjama. I had an old light blue one from about 8 years ago. It was great, used it for everything from short steep routes to multi pitch slabs, sport, trad, ice and mountaineering. Then it was time to upgrade as the old one was worn out. I got this new grey adjama and found those rear loops are terrible! They lay very flat against the harness making it difficult to rack your gear. This is especially true during sport climbs where I have less on those loops (a leash biner, belay device, and not much else). The older versions rear loops flared out just enough to make racking a breeze, and I never found them to get in the way while wearing a pack.

Overall the harness is an upgrade in the comfort and packability departments. Just wish those rear loops would stick out just a tad more, it would make them much more usable. Still debating on keeping this harness or trading it for something else.

good transition harness

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

We were looking for a harness for a 13 year old fairly serious climber. Junior harnesses were getting small, but adult harnesses too big...the thighs (which run small on this harness) are still a little big, but manageable. My son says it's really comfortable (more so than his former harness). Suitable for indoor and outdoor climbing, a lot of room on the gear loops. Woud be fun if it came in more colors. Will be able to grown into it, yet it is still a safe, if slightly big, fit.

Solid harness

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is the second Adjama harness that I have had. From walls to gyms, this harness is solid. I can easily fit a double-set of cams, nuts and draws for a long pitch on the four gear loops. The padding is pretty comfortable. For day-long climbing, I haven't experienced any discomfort from this harness. After a two-day climb of mainly hanging belays, I definitely noticed some pressure points in my hips and thighs, but I reckon that is to be expected in all harnesses except the most padded.

I do wish that this had a full-strength haul loop.

Compared with the previous models, the L/XL is noticeably smaller, but this still fits my "robust" 36 inch waistline.

Bottom-line: I like it!

Best harness I've owned

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This thing is super comfy, durable, well priced, and performs great even on long days. I would have to disagree with the one "2 star reviewer" and say this thing rocks for trad and even mountaineering. The back gear loops are specifically small to be comfy when you have a pack on, and they do that job well. I should mention for trad I like to rack some gear on a sling and some gear on my harness so 2 gear loops in plenty for most routes. My only real complaint is the haul loop, which isn't a haul loop. Why not put a rated haul loop on there Petzl?? I think they thought, sport climbers don't need a haul loop. But this is an all arounder.

What more can you ask for? It's super comfortable, has plenty of features to attach gear, and is very stable. Perfect!

Great for Everything

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got a new Adjama for work (used daily for the past two months) and it is awesome. Belaying, climbing, hanging, carrying gear, I have yet to find a use where it does no work. It is burly enough to carry all the gear I need for multipitch trad yet comfortable enough for sport onsights. Great as a first, second third, or fourth harness.

I love mine!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had my model Petzl Adjama for over two years now and even though I climb all the time, this thing is still rocking and looks new'ish.

One of the best harnesses I've owned! I recommend these to nearly everyone. Petzl is my go to for harnesses. They are super durable and comfortable to boot.

I love mine!

Choss! That place is sketchy. Saint George gave us some scares but fun area... Great pic!

Hey Jonathan,
I couldn't agree more. my partner kicked off a basketball size hold shortly before this picture was taken. Luckily no one got hurt.

I have a friend at backcountry whose brother fell and a bolt ripped out of the wall... Thankfully he was on the fourth bolt and didn't deck, but it could've been BAD!

Kudos to the adventure-who knew; adventure sport climbing?!

Great sport climbing harness!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is one comfortable harness. The adjustable leg loops fit very snug, and the harness fits my body well. I have used this harness for multi-pitch sport routes and it was great. I had no issue with the gear loops, though some back loops that drop down lower would be nice for trad. I never once felt uncomfortable on the hanging belay and would have been ready to take big whippers if I couldn't figure out a route. I haven't needed to yet but I think I may just to feel the comfort!

Great sport climbing harness!

Bad harness for mountaineering/trad

It's light, comfy and aesthetic (if you actually mind), but the gear loops, mostly the rear ones, are awful. For a sport it is ok, but for trad or mountaineering, where you use all the gear loops, it is terrible. The gear loops are way into the back, so much that you can't even see what you're carrying on the rear ones, especially if wearing a jacket or a backpack, which forces you to twist your torso too much to try to see. Plus, the rear loops are to small and too close to the belt, so that clipping or unclipping, especially notched-end biners, is a pain in the ass. When you're wearing a backpack, they get completely obstructed by the pack's belt. To me, the gear loops are one of the most important parts of a harness because I'm using them all the time, so I just got another one.

I would agree with this, I can't understand how people love this harness for trad/mtn. I also usually carry some gear on an over the shoulder sling when trad climbing, but the rear gear loops on this I find almost useless, especially when wearing a pack. The only use I have found for the rear loops on this harness is to stash gear to use at belays such as extra lockers, cordellette, etc. If the gear loops were more user friendly, this harness would be amazing and definitely a 5 star, I just can't give it five when I am constantly saying to myself 'these rear gear loops suck.'

Wish the leg loops allowed more room

Nice harness, I have always used Petzl harnesses. I just wish the leg loops had a couple more inches of expando in them to allow for down pants and/or other mega layering situations. May be just a bit tight in the quads if you have manly thighs and himalayan pants on.

Seemed ok.

I ordered the Adjama and Adjama 2 at the same time so that I could compare them, and I ended up sending this one back because I liked the Adjama better. No real complaints, I just thought the other one was a little more comfy...

A great harness.

This harness is an improvement over the previous design, which I had for a little while until I outgrew it (read: gained weight). It has a little more padding, but is still light and breathable. Also, the wider waist belt on the hips is really nice, and if I'm not mistaken, the leg loops seems proportionally wider than they were before.

I thought the caritool slots would bug me, because they makes for smaller rear gear loops that are pushed further back. But the rear gear loops on the medium are completely adequate in size for trad climbing and I have not had a problem fishing around back there for a sling, biner or belay device. Also, the location of the rear gear loops makes for better weight distribution with a full rack.

This harness fits me very well and it feels very comfortable when working a route or lowering. Petzl is on to something with the fit of their harnesses. They cradle your weight in a way that I've not experienced in 20 years of wearing climbing harnesses. Considering that other companies are asking 50 to 75 dollars more for their high-end harnesses, the Adjama 2 is a good bargain.

As for sizing, my waist measures about 34 inches and my legs about 24 inches and the medium fits me perfectly. I cinch the waist belt tight on my harness so I can hang a trad rack on it without sagging, and I have about an inch of room to tighten it down more should I lose some weight (fingers crossed). Looking at the sizing chart I don't see how someone with an actual waist measurement of 30-32 inches could wear this harness without it sagging.
