    Solution Guide Harness

    The Solution Series consists of Black Diamond's sportier climbing harness, and the Men's Solution Guide Harness is slightly modified for trad crags like Indian Creek or even longer multi-pitch climbing like Red Rock. It's mostly the same as the original Solution, with the exception of the Super Fabric exterior that boasts advanced durability for chimneys, offwidths, and rubbing against the rock on hanging belays. Apart from that, and the fifth gear loop for items like gloves and cord, the Solution Guide still features the same Fusion Comfort Technology that uses two separate strands of webbing to balance comfort and lightness. The single waist buckle is easy to cinch on and off, the elasticized leg loops are easy to move in, and the detachable risers allow drop seat functionality.

    Comfy, burly, do all trad harness

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This rig takes the best features of a number of BD harnesses and combines them into one super comfortable, burly and featured trad harness.

    Comfortable - Short of a wall harness this is the most comfortable harness in the BD line.
    Gear Loops - This harness has more than enough storage capacity. The front loops are 25% bigger than the standard BD gear loops (same size front loops as a Chaos Harness) and it has the accessory gear loop on the back.
    Burly - the fabric on exterior of the harness is by far the burliest fabric I've ever used on a BD harness. I've ruined plenty of harnesses in the desert and this one is 2 desert seasons in and still going strong.

    The webbing running from the lower tie in point to the leg loops isn't stacked like the Solution which helps prevent the wear point that the Chaos & Solution harnesses had if you like to stick your leg in a nice #5 or #6 crack.

    So go stuff your self in that OW/Chimney, bring that extra cam and enjoy your day in comfort.

    Comfy, burly, do all trad harness

    Is the "fifth gear loop" the new haul loop? Given they didn't call out any specs for it I'm guessing it's not as burly as the real haul loop in the old Chaos (rated at 12Kn). Is the new "fifth gear loop" strong enough for a tag line at least? For a "Climbing harness built specifically for trad" this seems like an oversight unless I'm missing something...

    Hey Michael,

    I just got off the phone with Black Diamond to get some clarification from them. According to what they say the fifth gear loop is not rated for any impact, but can hold up to around 6/7 pounds on a tag line.

    Hope that helps, but let me know if you have any other questions!
