Although pretty sport-specific, Petzl's Sama Harness is comfortable enough to hang in when you're sussing out the beta. Its EndoFrame construction includes thin padding in a slim waist with sewn-in webbing to create just enough comfort for hanging on your project. EndoFrame also minimizes pressure points so you don't end up having sore spots at the end of the day.

Solid all arounder
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I was given this product from Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion.
The Petzl Sama is a solid all around harness. I climb both indoors and outdoors, so I wore this during marathon sessions at the gym as well as while working my projects. Overall it is a comfortable harness, with no major frills or thrills, and is fine if you want something for all around use.
I wear a size 32 pants, and got the medium harness. The waist band of the Petzl Sama is true to size, however the leg loops felt tight, and without the ability to adjust them itâs just something you have to get used to. The gear loops are smaller, making it better for sport climbing, however they are still big enough for a light trad rack. The Sama is quite durable and after almost a month of near daily usage, it has no significant wear. It is comfortable for regular use, and hanging from it while projecting or belaying is as comfortable as most harnesses get.
Overall, I wouldnât recommend the Petzl Sama to someone looking for a specific trad or sport harness, or who already has an all arounder. But for an all arounder that will keep you comfy and safe, the Sama is a solid piece of gear that will last through your projects and gym sessions for a long while.
