Light enough to send, comfortable enough to work a project.

The Petzl Sama Harness gives sport climbers the lightweight performance they need to send and is comfortable enough for long sessions spent working out sequences on a project. The waist belt is wider on the sides, and the elastic leg loops have double webbing for improved weight distribution, ultimately providing enhanced comfort. The tie-in point is made with a high-tenacity polyethylene to resist wear from rope friction, while four gear loops easily accommodate quickdraws and a standard trad rack. 

  • Endoframe construction
  • Doubleback light buckle at waist
  • Fitted, elastic leg loops
  • High-tenacity polyethylene tie-in point
  • Wear indicator on lower bridge
  • Four gear loops (two rigid front, two flexible rear)
  • Two Caritool tool holder slots
  • Rear haul loop

Best harness hands down

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Sizing is accurate, breathes well, and distributes pressure evenly betweens hips and thighs.

Buy it!


Best harness that I had

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

You can use it in every single kind of climbing. Very light and durable. The size chart is accurate.


it's my do-everything harness

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I love this harness. It's the most comfortable harness I've used (compared to older sama's, BD momentum, Mammut zephir). And it is reasonably light. I think it has something to do with the angle of the leg loops - really comfortable when my partner is hang-dogging.

The nylon runs smoothly through the autolock plates, and there's plenty of space in the belay loop area for a variety of rope/cordage. I found room for my 7mm PAS, and twins in there.

The gear loops are a little floppy, especially the ones in the back, and it makes it harder to reach for gear (-1 star). I think the plastic molded gear loops of BD are better. But I like how it has the tiny loops for caritools. I just put in plastic REI biners to rack my stoppers.

I would pretty much use this harness for any kind of climbing - sport, trad, big-wall, alpine. Maybe you could get harnesses that are better for each specific type, but this one really is the jack of all at an affordable price.
