    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.

    Simply perfect...

      Petzel did amazing work with this harness! They more than exceeded my expectations in quality, comfort, and performance. This was actually the first harness I ever bought, I had heard great things about it from gear heads at backcountry and fellow climbers at my local rock gym. If that wasn't enough then trying it on was the deciding factor. The sama is easily the most comfortable harness I've worn in its price range. After using it a few times in the gym I have only one complaint, and for gym climbing this isn't a problem. The gear loops in the back seem kinda floppy, they are firm but lay flat to the sides of the harness. That is definitely the only thing I would change.

      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.
