I've owned 5 different harnesses now, (some Singing Rock, BD momentum, Camp Quartz, BD Focus, and this), and climbed in many more. This is the best one I've yet climbed in. When it's done, I'll probably buy another.
- Speed adjust
- Comfy to hang/whip in
- Looks darn good
- Gear loops are easily accessible
- Gear loops are easy to clip to
- Haul loop
- (Relatively) expensive
- Uncomfortable when loaded with a lot of gear
- Not very breathable
- Speed adjust isn't so speedy (not necessarily a bad thing)
This harness is awesome. I've deliberately fallen 20+ feet in it many times to test how it feels to whip in it (and actually whipped in it) and it feels great. The waist belt distributes the force beautifully throughout and gives you a nice comfy catch. However, when loaded with a ton of gear (i.e. double rack of c4s, nuts, extra biners and slings), the belt kind of rolls, causing it to flare away from the body at the top, and bite into the waist at the bottom. This isn't that bad, but starts to get uncomfortable after a few hours. It also doesn't breath that well, but what harness does? I've belayed literally hundreds (maybe thousands?) of people in this harness (I work in a climbing gym), and it's incredible. If you have the money to afford one, get it. If you don't, get the Momentum.
