Great Starter Package
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have used this harness package all summer and I love it. I was not much of a climber in the beginning so I got this package and I have started to really love the sport. This is a basic package but it comes with everything that you would need to get started in climbing. The color of the chalk bag is a random set of colors so you might not get the all grey version. Mine came with a yellow chalk bag but I do not really care about colors that much so it works just fine for me.
Starter Pack doesn't Disappoint
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I bought this as a gift for my fiance to get him started for climbing. This is such a great package for someone who is beginning to climb or just having as an extra for friends and family visiting is perfect. We use it indoors right now, but going to put it through the test outdoors here soon. So far the fit is pretty true to size where the waist is involved. He's 6'4 190 and the large was good where there was enough for tightening or expansion. The belay device is a standard ATC-XP with the option or right or lefties. If you're looking for a more low-profile and quick releasing carabiner you might want to upgrade, but for our purposes it works wonderfully.
Also if your heart is set on getting the grey chalk bag you might end up getting another color. We got a burnt yellow sort of color and it was a pleasant surprise!
Standard of Excellence
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
The Black Diamond Momentum harness is irrefutably excellent. If you are looking to get in to climbing or are looking for a gift for the aspiring climber in your life, this package is a sure winner and includes everything necessary to take on the gym with the exception of shoes.
The Momentum is the kind of harness you can buy for your first harness and still be using it long after you've mastered 5.10's. It's comfortable, relatively light, and doesn't take up too much space. The rocklock carabiner is pretty standard (that is to say, I would trust it to suspend me over a pit of starving alligators) but the ATC-XP that is included has machined windows on the sides to make it lighter and is likely a step above what you might find in other climbing packages.
The chalk bag has a good build quality and comes with a belt which is always nice. Although, as another site user mentioned, the chalk bag color does seem to vary as I received a yellow bag instead of teal or gray. Honestly though, all of the colors for the Mojo bag are great. You can see the other colors it might come in here:
Heads up on the Chalk Bag!
