The Black Diamond Aspect Harness is a climbing harness that's up for climbing in all four seasons. Whether you like to focus on ice and alpine in the chill of winter and dabble in sport climbs during the warmer months, or if it's the other way around, and even further if you just go at any climb in any season, the Dual Core XP Construction keeps your comfort and safety at top priority. The Speed Adjust buckles at the waist and leg loops are simple and quick, locking you in and won't let go until it's time to step out of the harness. Bombshell abrasion patches keep the harness sturdy and looking good day in and day out. Rack up using the four pressure-molded gear loops and add additional gear with the ice clipper slots. Layer up, strip down to shorts or throw on something in between, 'cause this harness is ready for spring, summer, fall and winter.

Great harness, runs small!Hello fellow climbers or newbs,,,,,My boyfriend first ordered this harness in a small, which is what he normally wears, but had to order a second in the medium because it was too small on him. He is 6ft tall and super skinny. He measured a 29" waist but was way more comfortable in the medium. He says the harness is super comfy and he loves the placement of the gear loops and enjoys that there is a good spot for his chalk bag. The leg loops on the medium were not too big for his chicken legs either. I would recommend this harness to anybody who loves to climb for a long period of time. Hope this helps!

Great all around harness!This harness is awesome! I have been using it for winter mountaineering and ice climbing lately but also sport and multi pitch trad routes. It has 4 slots for ice clippers for racking ice screws, 4 plastic coated gear loops for all your gear needs. It also has 5th gear loop in the back that you can clip your chalk bag to, I use it to carry my belay device, cordalette and nut tool so they are out of the way of the rack. It also has a haul loop so you can trail a second rope. The leg loops drop easily so you can answer the call of nature. The harness is also light enough for sport climbing and it's pretty comfy for those hanging belays.

Great Multi-Functional HarnessI love this harness for everything from cragging to ice to the rock gym. No brainer waist and leg loop closures, great gear loop design - the shape makes a significant difference compared with typical loops, biners go on and off easily. About the only thing I'd use a different seat for is a long alpine scramble or snow slog, where there is only minimal or occasional need for harness/rope. 90% of the time, this is the one in the pack. You can buy a sexier harness for two or three times the price, but probably not a better one. Its like most all Black Diamond stuff - they know what they are doing in Salt Lake, and the gear just works the way you want it to.

Really great, comfortable, versatile harness.This harness does it all. I've used it on glacier routes in Patagonia (a little heavy for this, but was expecting some 5th class terrain higher up), ice routes in the rockies, and rock routes in Minnesota. It's really comfortable to hang in, the ice clipper slots are invaluable for winter climbing, and everything is easily adjustable. While the Momentum can do pretty much everything this can, I know from setting routes in each, that the Aspect is much more comfortable to hang in for long periods of time. There's not much else to be said - just a really great, all around harness. Typical BD greatness.

Not worth the extra money. Get the Momentum AL instead.I bought this harness because I was expecting it to be more comfortable than my current momentum AL. I am getting into multi-pitch sport climbs and I set routes in the gym. I wanted a harness that would be more comfortable to sit in for long periods of time. This harness is not noticeably more comfortable than less expensive black diamond harnesses. Don't get me wrong. It's a great harness. It's thin, light, and stylish. But that is not what I was looking for in a harness. So save yourself the money unless you just have to have it.

This is the greatest harness I have ever sat in!The comfort level of this harness is rivaled by no other harness I have ever tried on. It allows me to hang-dog on any climb i try. I can rack up any amount of gear i want as well when i set out to get my 5.3 trad on! (CRUSHIN'!) I also love the quick buckle system. There is a rated haul loop on the back to bring anything heavy up behind you. Above the haul loop is a SAWEEEET chalk bag line, seriously pimp! GET THIS HARNESS. Plus, the blue is SO cool.

Great, comfortable harness - leg loops on the small sideI've used this harness for about 6 months now, mostly for gym and some sport climbing. I got it pretty heavily discounted.,,,,I have a 30 inch waist, and I fit in the small with a good bit of extra webbing on the waist loop. (the medium would have to be cinched all the way down to work). That said, with my fairly meaty thighs, the leg loops have to be almost completely open, with only about an inch of extra webbing sticking out the buckles (I wouldn't really want any less than this; I would really leave the leg loops a little looser if I could). I don't know why they don't let the leg loops get a little bigger given the waist. The gear loops are in a nice spot for grabbing draws.,,,,The harness is comfortable hang-dogging in and working projects, much to the chagrin of my belayer. If you don't have a giant thigh-to-waist ratio (i.e., if you fit in skinny jeans), then this is a great harness.

Comfortable fit. Seems built to last. Not great if you plan to be sitting in your harness a whileJust bought this one to replace an old black diamond harness I had for years. Seems great for sport and mountaineering - looking forward to taking it on some long treks. Not super padded in the back so I can see it being a bit uncomfortable if you are sitting in your harness for a while on some long multi pitch routes.
