Comfort and versatility for every season.
Whether you're making alpine dashes in the summer, projecting sport routes in the fall, or swinging ice tools in the winter, the Petzl Men's Adjama 2 is the only harness you'll need. Thanks to the optimized weight distribution and the absence of seams on contact areas, the Adjama provides enough comfort for hanging belays and long sessions spent working projects.
- Specially designed waist-belt is wider on the sides to provide optimal weight distribution for greater comfort
- Specific stitching on the belt eliminates seams from contact areas for less chafing
- Pre-threaded DoubleBack buckle can be quickly adjusted and secured with a single pull
- Dyneema tie-in points are super strong and resistant to rope abrasion
- Adjustable leg loops with secure DoubleBack buckles provide the versatility for sport, trad, and mountaineering applications
- EVA foam padding and breathable mesh increase comfort
- Two rigid gear loops in the front and two soft loops in the rear provide easy access to equipment
- Two slots will accept Caritool tool holders
- Rear loop provides a place to secure a tag line

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!

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.
Comfort at the prophesy wall
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!
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.
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.
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...
PETZL 2013 harnesses
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.
