The Black Diamond Chaos Harness is a climbing harness for trad, cragging, and multi-pitch free climbs. The Chaos is durable, built to endure long routes and take on constant abuse. The Kinetic Core Construction gives the waistbelt it's bullhorn shape, spreading out weight evenly for all day comfort. The 3D breathable mesh on the inside of the belt and leg loops wicks moisture away and dries out quickly. The larger gear loops provide plenty of space for a full rack, with welded patches on high-abrasion areas for continued use. Secure the belt close with the forged speed adjust belt buckle and tackle the next project.

Improved version of a great harness.My last 3 harnesses have been the Chaos. This one is their new belt technology, and it is a genuine improvement. the belt is wider and more comfortable, while being slightly lighter than previous versions. The gear loops are square, which avoids bunching, but they seem a little smaller. I'm 6'3, 200 lbs, and this is quite comfortable for trad climbing, and I'll happily use it on big walls.One of the lightest trad harnesses made.

Adored by sport climbers everywhereThis harness is excellent for sport climbing. I've never experienced a harness quite as comfortable as the Chaos.
-comfortable for belaying, taking falls in, etc. for long periods of time
-haul loop is strength-rated
-mesh-style inner lining provides extra comfort
-attractive design. My mom thinks I look good in this harness.
-leg loops are not adjustable; the harness doesn't work well for ice climbing and such.
-large gear loops are advertised, but I didn't really notice the ability to carry significantly more gear than my old BD harness.
