Technician Harness

This year you plan to tick off a whole slew of routes, far and wide, rock and ice, and you can rely on the Black Diamond Women's Technician Harness to get you through each send. From granite multi-pitching to steep, icy alpine terrain, this harness flaunts five sturdy gear loops and four ice clipper slots to hold a rack of any size. The Technician's lightweight and quick-drying waist belt keeps you comfortable, supported, and dry while you hangdog to figure out that tough sequence or gear up for the next pitch in the desert sun. The durable shell withstands wear and tear from abrasive rock and ice while speed buckles near the waist and legs adjust to fit your warm ice-climbing layers or the tights you wear to clip bolts.

Good, all around harness

I've put it through the wringer
True to size
Size Bought
5` 9"
155 lbs

I bought this initially for ice climbing as a new climber. I attached the ice clippers with not too much effort. This past summer, began rock climbing indoor and outside and has been comfortable and sturdy for both. Is comfortable multi-purpose harness. I use for alpine too, but am thinking about getting something lighter. Have been able to remove ice clippers as well. I bought a size M, I have a 29” in waist, 40” in hips, 5’9”, 155 lbs. I can cinch the waist down securely for summer and have ample space to accommodate 3-4 layers for winter.

BD Missed the Mark

I returned this product before using it
Runs large
Size Bought
5` 5"
135 lbs

I really wanted to like this harness, I did. But BD simply missed the mark with this model. They got rid of the burly haul loop at the back for a flimsier, less useful version. The gear loops are smaller. The 5th gear loop isn't a standard gear loop. And the fit. I've been climbing in BD harnesses for 10 years, I've always been a size small. The small in the Technician was wayyy to large in the waist, what gives? I was thinking maybe it was sized to fit over layers, but even then. The waist fit and leg fit is plain funky. Not sure why it changed for this years' model. It is certainly light and minimalist, but I couldn't get past the odd fit. Possibly designed for someone with a larger waist and smaller legs and a very short torso? I hope they make a better harness for alpine/ice use next year.


How does the Technician compare to the old Lotus harness (fit, size of gear loops, etc)? Thanks!
