    Send in any season.

    As a year-round climber, you need gear that withstands both the test of time and the most rugged routes, so you rely on the Black Diamond Men's Technician Harness for every send. From sharp, single-pitch limestone sport routes to hanging by an axe from a frozen waterfall, the Technician's durable Fusion Comfort Technology waistband and leg loops were built to handle the most abrasive conditions while wicking away nervous sweat. Five gear loops and four ice clipper slots hold any sized rack for whatever vertical task you take on next, and adjustable leg loops and waist buckles make it easy to transition from accommodating your extra winter layers while on the ice or your shorts when you're high on the wall clipping bolts.

    Not as comfy as previous model.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The previous version of this harness had like 15% more padding which was nice. This version is a little more simplistic, but still a great harness. The only other complaint was moving away from a thick fabric haul line loop. I do a lot of chimney/wide climbing and the haul line loop is almost like a vinyl loop. It hasn't gotten too worn yet, but if the way my old one looks is any similar, I may be using a different loop for the haul line.

    12/10 Harness

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Have you ever tried something on and just knew, that it was perfect?
    This beautiful harness was made for those that love climbing but hate feeling uncomfortable because of ...well.. you know...
    This anti squeezer pleaser is one of the greatest inventions I have ever tried.
    If Zeus himself were a climber he would totally be using this Da'Vinchi art piece.

    Great Trad harness

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I just bought one of these for a trip into The Cirque of the Towers, where we climbed the Northeast Face. The harness performed wonderfully in terms of what it holds, how light it is, and seeming durability. It could have been a little more comfortable, but that's always a trade-off when going for lightweight. Black Diamond is one of the finest manufacturer's of climbing equipment in the world and this harness provides further evidence.

    My Favorite Harness

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I just switched to the technician specifically for trad climbing. It has been absolutely excellent! It is super lightweight and has a small footprint, but it also has been a very soft catch on some big whippers. I love the spare gear loop at the back to keep my belay and anchor supplies

    Good all around!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This harness is a great bang for the buck. It's very light and packs up tight. I have a 30" waist and went with Medium and the fit is really good. As others have said, the gear loops are a bit small, but the back loop does make up for the reduced storage space on the side by allowing you to store less frequently used items there (prusik, belay device, cordelette, etc). To give a little more definition to what's available, I stack same size cams and I pretty much maxed out storage on the side gear loops with doubles of BD cams in each size from 0.3 - 3, a number 4, a set of nuts, a set of tricams, and some draws and runners. So, for most trad adventures the space is sufficient. For big walls and climbs needing aid equipment, you'll need to augment storage. Can't speak to ice climbing yet as I haven't had the opportunity to give it a try on ice.

    Also, the back gear loop is slim enough that it snags the nose of the carabiner when you try and remove something from it if you store your stuff on your gear loops with the gates facing inward. I switched to storing my stuff with my gates facing out back there and haven't had any issues since (maybe the designer wanted to put an end to that debate once and for all, hahaha).

    Anyway, overall, I'm very pleased with the harness and would recommend to others if you're looking in this price range.

    Love this harness!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Does everything I hoped - It's compact and light weight, great if you're packing it into some far-flung cirque, incredibly comfortable for something so light, thin and streamlined construction stays out of the way so you hardly know you're wearing it. I have a 34" waist and followed advice from previous reviewers and went with the Large which fits perfectly. Mind you, I would have purchased the large anyway as I want it to fit over layers in winter. As mentioned by others the gear loops are small, plenty for a rack of draws on sport routes but you'll need to find another way to carry your trad rack.

    Light and comfortable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Great harness for what it's designed for; light alpine and ice climbing. The gear loops are small so won't be good if you're taking up a big trad rack. 4 ice clipper loops are strong and we'll positioned (BD clippers fit a lot better than Petzl clippers).

    Sizing: I have a 34 waist and usually wear a Medium harness in other brands. In this harness I had to get a Large, so keep that in mind

    Overall I really like this harness! Very light, comfortable, and perfect for what it's made for. The 5th gear/haul loop is large and perfect for extra gloves, belay devises, V-thread cord, and anything you want!
