Will B.wrote a review of Petzl Adjama Harness on July 28, 2019
Familiarity: 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?
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.
