I've been using this harness for several years and finally had to replace it. Great all around harness for gym, sport or trad climbing. Well positioned padding but not excessive. Gear loops right where you need them. Durable. I'm a 34 waist and the Large fits perfectly.
I have an older gen. Momentum harness (2010. There are a few changes with this newer generation. 1. The gear loops are smaller and sit flatter. They have a more square shape and less space. 2. They've changed the leg loop buckles for sliders. These tend to slip a little vs. the older ones and you can't drop the leg loops while keeping the waist buckled anymore (limits alpine use here). 3. All seams and sewn areas are concealed. Depends on what kind of inspection you do on your harness pre-climb. I actually like to see all the cross stitches and sewn areas so I can inspect for integrity/damage prior to climbing. On these newer BD harnesses, they're mostly hidden inside a fabric covering. Good for keeping them clean, bad for inspection purposes. Overall, still a decent harness for trad and gym use. Comfy enough for all day use IMO. Trad climbers - the gear loops might agitate you if you like to rack everything on your waist.
I bought this earlier this month and have used it five or so times and everything has worked fine. The issue I have is that the gear loops are much smaller than the gear loops on other momentum harnesses I've seen before - my girlfriend's size xs women's momentum has much bigger gear loops and so does my friend's mens size xl. Good buy if gear loop size isn't important to you
I have had this harness for 6 months now and use it at least 2-3 times a week (indoors and outside. I have taken it through wet slot canyons, gnarly multi-pitches, and more. This thing is durable. Not once have I been concerned with its performance or limits. Would 150% recommend! The only reason it does not get 5 stars, is the back butt straps. They break off pretty easily (but still is my favorite harness).
I have had this harness now for over a year, I am a trad climber and this harness has seen some serious abuse, and has held up beautifully, nice and comfortable the only thing I wish it had was a little bit bigger gear loops , bd has top notch gear 98 percent of all my stuff is bd for the money this is a awesome harness!! But I think for my personal preference the next one I will be getting is the big gun just because of the gear racking ability! Anyhow you can’t go wrong with bd they are the best there is in climbing gear!!
I bought this 4 was ago and have used it 7 times. I was looking for a cost efficent alternative to renting a harness every time I went climbing. Its nearly paid for itself. It’s easy to use and configure to my small frame, it’s comfortable, has loops for extra equipment and it’s durable. I’m not yet a super technical climber and have beat it up fairly well in just a few climbs. Great harness for new indoor climbers using auto belay devices or top rope climbing. I’m super satisfied so far!!
This is the best harness I’ve owned. It’s perfectly refined, has all of the necessary features and none of what you don’t want. Always fits, even after tons of use. I love that it’s light enough and strong enough for any mission from beginner to pro.
I bought this harness as a dual purpose harness for climbing and caving as it's super easy to adjust and very comfortable. Also, with a price point that is reasonable enough to justify dragging it through the mud inside caves. So far it has worked really well for me and held up very well. I would definitely buy another one!
