Adjama Harness

Pitches on pitches on pitches, it's so nice to start the next pitch of climbing right where you ended the last pitch, as opposed to cumbersomely carrying your climbing rope across a dusty crag. There are a couple things multi-pitch climbers look for in harnesses that sport climbers do not—comfort and gear storage. The Adjama Harness features Petzl's EndoFrame Technology, which uses a wider waistband made of thin foam and sewn-in webbing. The adjustable leg loops have the same technology, and the result is a well-supported, surprisingly comfortable harness that shouldn't have any pressure points when you're hanging at belays.

  • Advanced climbing harness made for multi-pitch climbs
  • EndoFrame Technology maximizes comfort and reduces pressure points
  • Self-locking waist buckle and DoubleBack adjustable leg loops
  • Rigid gear loops up front, three soft gear loops around rear
  • Caritool Evo ice screw carabiner loop, additional trail line

Super Solid Harness

Size Bought
6` 2"
195 lbs

This harness is extremely comfortable and feels durable. As others have said, the gear loops are a bit weird but I have mostly gotten used to them. I do love having the fifth gear loop in the back for trad climbing. Overall, very happy with this harness and would recommend!

Sizing and other flaws

As other reviews have mentioned, the sizing is way off. I have a 31" waste, and the medium (which have a 30-35" range once you convert from metric) was too small. And, as others have said, the left gear loops are way off center, with the front gear loop being way towards the back. They gear loops are also very small. So I sent it back right out of the package.

This is a really comfortable harness with plenty of storage for all of your gear! It looks really good too, the only think that I did have a hard time with was the leg straps. They don’t really tighten down very tight and tend to ride up sometimes which can get a little bit uncomfortable at times. Other than that it is a solid harness especially for the price!

Super Comfy

I've used it several times

I took out this harness on a couple climbs and was amazed how comfortable it was. Its also super lightweight, Petzl is an amazing company so I trusted nothing would go wrong and nothing did. The back gear loops could be a little larger but other then that it was A+. I would check the sizing chart I've been climbing in a Black Diamond Momentum harness in a size XL but the XL in the Adjama was really big and left me with too much space.

Nice Harness

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

Recently, I was using the Petzl Adjama climbing harness. I haven’t used this type of harness before so I wanted to give it a go. This harness is great! I took this harness outside and enjoyed it. Petzl makes great gear, loved the harness, and I would recommend this to anyone!

Compact and light

Me 6' 145lb 30w ( not skinny either :) First tried a small - leg loops good but waist off center and too tight. Medium good for waist and leg loops worked after removing elastic keeper. Great harness for all around climbing (used a bunch for sport and trad).

Two Major Flaws...

I returned this product before using it

I had the first gen Adjama for close to 4 years. Awesome harness - nothing wrong with it I just felt like it was time to get a new one for safety sake. I saw that a new gen Adjama was out and bought it sight-unseen since I liked my current one, so the new one must be better, right? Wrong. The first major flaw is that the rear gear loops on either side are jokingly small. If you try to get even 6 draws on them they are so bunched up that the top biners mash into each other and get all jumbled up. The second and most severe flaw of this harness that in my opinion makes it unusable, is that the gear loops are NOT EVENLY SPACED OUT. When I put on the size medium harness I ordered (I'm a 32" waist) and cinched it down, the right-side gear loops are at approximately 2oclock and 4oclock while the left side gear loops are at approximately 9 o clock and 7oclock. Or, in other words, the harness waistband is rotated about 20-30 degrees counter-clockwise. Meaning that you have to reach to a different spot on your left side then your right side to grab gear. In addition, the rear-most gear loop that is supposed to sit dead-center on the middle of your back, is closer to the 5oclock position. I never had this issue with my last harness and am very surprised that no one has mentioned this yet. It LOOKS very comfortable and safe, but I sold it without ever using it because of those two main issues that for me, make it unusable.

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

The construction of the harness instilled much confidence on the wall. However, the leg loops wouldn't quite snug up on my thighs. Used a medium. I have a 31 inch waist and a 21 in thigh, the waist needed to be tightened all the way to fit, and the leg loops never quite got there. Might try a small, or do more leg days.

Very comfortable and high quality harness. Fits a little large, but very adjustable. Highly recommend this harness.

Does great

I took it out a couple times and it didn't pinch or sit uncomfortably

Saved my life

I've used it several times

Isn't that what it's supposed to do? The thing is, it saved my life in such a comfortable way that I didn't once feel stressed by wearing it! It's incredibly comfortable, and I love that it has the adjustable leg loops! This is a prime harness that I'd reccomend any beginner-intermediate climber who's looking more for a comfortable climb rather than lightweight.

I would trust it

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

I only demoed this harness once. I was only able to use it in the gym. It seems like the features would be nice for a multi-pitch though. Sizing wise, I wore a large and didn't have trouble getting the leg loops tight on me. I am a 32 waist, 6'0, 175 lbs and it worked out for me.

Does the job

I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

The design has changed over the years and the positives are the extra loop on the back, which is great for multi pitch climbing, the offset gear loops are nice and the ones closest to the front are a firmer wire so your gear stays in place. The one downfall is there are no dedicated spots for a caritool for ice climbing unlike previous models that had one on each hip, had I known that I would have opted for a different model.

Check the sizing

I've put it through the wringer

I love this harness once I had ordered the right size. I originally was a medium, and it fit true to size, however, I lost a couple of pounds and had to completely down size to a small because I couldn't tighten the harness anymore. Besides that it works like a champ and I use the hell out of it!

Solid and safe but needed a modification

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

My main issue with this harness is the sizing of the leg loops. I have 22 1/2" thighs, which falls in the medium size range, but there is a small elastic keeper piece that makes tightening the leg loops all the way down impossible, which makes the loops too big even when all the way tight. With the keeper, there's about an inch or more left to tighten down. I called Petzl and they recommended me trying a fix before sending it back, and luckily it worked. You have to remove the entire loop from the double back buckle and slide the elastic piece through to where it sits on the outside between the double back, then tighten all the way down. Check out the picture to see what I mean. A Petzl Rep told me I could cut the eleastic keeper off carefully after I tried the fix to make sure it would get small enough. As for a proper review, this harness is going to be my winter harness and a backup for sport climbing. I also have a Metolius Safe Tech Deluxe (which is so comfortable and burly), and the Adjama is certainly not as comfortable to hang in or belay in, though it's a lot lighter and cooler, and easier to walk around in. Perks for me over the Metolius is the extra gear loop in the back, it's thin light weight construction, and nice packability meaning it's going to work great for any winter climbing that I do. I'd recommend this harness, especially because the fix for the leg loops is so easy. Takes about 2 minutes or less per side.


I'm running into the exact same issue. Same thigh size, should be right in the middle of the range given by Petzl, but the leg loops seem too large unless I use your fix (trying on the harness over jeans). How lasting do you think this fix will be? Might the leg loops stretch slightly over time? The size small fits better in the thighs (though even those are on the larger end), but the waist belt is a bit small causing the belay loop to be well off-center.
