M Fwrote a review of Black Diamond Lotus Harness - Women's on May 5, 2017
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I tried one three harnesses to find the one with the best fit to replace my old & dirty BD Lotus. My criteria are hanging comfort, easily accessible gear loop and large gear loop. My uses are mainly sport climbing and some shorter trad climbs.
1. Edelrid Solaris: GREAT leg loop comfort, but the waist belt is so wide, when hanging sometimes the top edge of the waist belt digs into my back. Good sized gear loop, but considering the bulkiness of the whole harness, it's not very packing friendly.
2. Camp Supernova: Comfort is okay, the leg loop on the inner thigh digs a little bit when hanging. I got a small size waist seems to be on the smaller side since the gear loops are lob-sided, but the legs are cinched all the down but still a little big. Because one side of gear loop is kind of behind my back, makes it not so easy accessible. Gear loops are quite large.
3. BD Lotus: Very comfortable when hanging. The leg loops don't dig. The gear loops are smaller but all four are centered. Sticking with the Lotus.
