The Solution also comes with four gear loops for a lot of quickdraws, an auto-locking waist belt for a precise fit, elastic leg loops, and releasable risers in case you nearly poop yourself on a run-out.

    Beautiful Simplicity

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Holy cow this thing is comfortable! The wide straps really distribute weight evenly. Not having buckles for your leg loops is not a problem. The elastic straps hug your legs perfectly. Nice thick hard points with larger opening make it easy when you are organizing your rap/lower. Black Diamond nailed it with the perfect solution!

    almost perfect

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I really do love this harness. It's light, low profile, never restricts my movement, and it's (reasonably) comfortable to hang in. For the gym, there's nothing better, at any price.

    I have to deduct a star for the gear loops though...

    I wear an XL cinched all the way down. This puts the right front gear loop way out in front, in a position where any gear you clip to it will hang between your legs at exactly the wrong moment. The odd thing is that I've tried on the size L (which doesn't fit comfortably due to the leg loop size), and even though the waist is open much wider, it has the same problem. The issue seems to be that the right front gear loop is sewn too close to the upper tie-in point, so that if you center your belay loop on your body, that gear loop will always be in the wrong position. If you center the back instead, it puts the gear loop in a usable position but leaves the belay loop (and upper tie-in) so off-center that you would never actually wear it this way.

    The small and medium sizes may not have this problem, I haven't checked.

    If BD fixed this issue it would be more than the perfect gym harness... it would just be perfect.

    Really light weight

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Bought this for sport climbing and was really impressed its super light and really comfortable. The loops being angled out makes it easier to grab your draws because they are hanging out a bit. By far favorite harness I have had.

    Awesome Gym Harness

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is a great light weight harness for the gym when all you need is an atc/grigri and a chalk bag. When climbing outside I opt for something a little more heavy duty to handle the quick draws or gear.

    Great for all styles

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I really enjoy this harness. I got it just before a big climbing trip to the Yosemite valley. I really like the lightweight design, and how comfortable it is. I was in this for almost an entire day and was comfortable the entire time. The only improvements that I would make to this is to make the gear loops a little larger or add another on either side (there's space) and adjustable leg loops. Other than that this is my favorite harness that I've owned thus far and I've been climbing for over a decade. I'd recommend this to any climber, with the exclusion of a serious big wall climber or aid climber, due to the amount of gear that they carry it's not logical due to the limited storage and lack of padding.

    Great Stuff

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I recently decided to replace my 6 year old BD Momentum and while I wanted to keep it in the family, I also wanted to try something new. I'm a fan - plenty comfortable taking whips on and I like the gear loops.

    I'm 5'8"/32" waist and got a medium, it's almost too tight but not quite. I probably wouldn't use it for winter stuff in heavy clothes though.

    First Harness in Years!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Just recently getting back into climbing and decided to get a new harness. And I am glad I choose this one. Insanely comfortable.

    I am 6'1", 185 lbs, and wear 32/33 waist in pants and ended up ordering a Large. Could go with a medium but the large suits me just fine. I've always felt secure and if i am wearing thicker pants I will probably be glad I have a Large.

    A Brilliant Harness!!!

      I've just recently received my new Solution harness, and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. After about a week of climbing (mostly in the gym) I must say that the harness fits me perfectly and has a truly exceptional fit... much better than my previous two harnesses... one was a Black Diamond (about 8 years old) and the other my original Arcteryx (15 years old) harness with which I began climbing. What's surprising is that despite having what appears at first to be minimal padding (rather slim and light design) it's perfectly comfortable even when hanging around (mid-climb). The materials appear to be solid and robust... especially the lower of the two loops, where you thread through your figure eight... they've reinforced this section, which typically tends to break down over time due to friction with the rope. I can't speak of it's longevity (since it's a rather recent purchase), though I feel rather confident that it shouldn't be an issue. The padding, like I said early, is rather slim, but it's wide, which seems to really support your weight evenly.

      Size-wise... I'm just under 6 feet tall, around 170 lbs with a 33 inch waist (rather slim fit overall), and I ordered the size Large. The legs and waist seem to be a perfect fit. I probably could have gone down in size to a Medium, but I think the large will be better in the long-run, especially when I'll have to wear more layers or thicker pants in colder conditions.

      This harness has everything one would want for gym and sport climbing... plenty of gear loops (4 in total), which are easily accessible. It's noticeably (or actually... unnoticeably) light. There's also a rather discrete loop in the back to clip a chalk bag, which I believe the higher end Chaos harness doesn't have.

      The little pouch which comes with the harness is rather small... I suppose that's great for packing away your harness into a small bundle, but a bit cramped if you were hoping to cram in your belay device and the chalk bag (which I tend to do... for reasons of convenience).

      Overall, I highly recommend the Solution harness... I couldn't honestly be more thrilled with this purchase!

      The perfect harness

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Great harness that is pretty much comparable to the Black Diamond Chaos, just half the price.

      Lightweight, comfortable, and great price.
      Size L fit me at 33 waist/190 lbs.

      Unfortunately, after about a month of use the elastic strap holding up the leg loops broke. Thankfully I live close to the Black Diamond store in Salt Lake City, UT and they were able to take it and give me a replacement.. After 4-6 weeks.

      Where have you been all my life?

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This harness is everything I wanted it to be. Reasonably priced, super light weight, packs down nice and tight and most of all comfortable. I initially purchased this as a single pitch sport/gym harness but after climbing in it a couple times I've started using it for a whole lot more than that. I wear this harness for climbs up to three pitches and am still comfortable. If i need to bring up a lot of gear then I resort to the Black Diamond big gun but for most climbs in the Wasatch this harness will suffice. I would totally recommend this for any type of climber. Sizing on it is maybe a tad bit on the small side, a medium fits me but it is cutting it close on the leg loops. I wear a 32 waist and weigh 165 lbs.
