The Black Diamond Momentum Harness is a climbing harness for all-around use. Durable and comfortable, Dual Core Construction™ uses two bands of webbing to distribute pressure, a foam insert for the cushion, a soft, breathable lining and an abrasion-resistant nylon shell. The combination allows you to put it on, forget about it, and just climb. Whether you're sport or trad climbing, or dabbling in something new with a friend, the 12 ounce harness is ready for the challenge. A speed-adjust waistbelt buckle secures tightly and the leg loops adjust via trakFIT. Gear stays close at hand thanks to the four pressure-molded gear loops and a single haul loop at the back. Keep it on hand in your trunk, you never know when a buddy may call for a climbing session at the local crag after work.

  • Patent-pending trakFIT adjustment for easy leg loop customization

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a worthy successor to the model it replaces. Very narrow range of waist size adjustment. Medium is 30-33", Large is 33-36". I'm a 33", no more, no less. I went with the Medium and while technically it fits it's not easy to get on. Also, the various loops only sit in the right places if the harness is adjusted to the minimum, not maximum, waist size (for example, the belay loop being directly opposite the rear haul loop). I guess I should have gotten the Large. Too bad, can't return. The narrow range of adjustment is poor design regardless. I got a Black Diamond DS L/XL from Moosejaw instead: 30-42" adjustment, double buckles to maintain symmetry, that's more like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from YOU CANNOT BEAT THIS FOR THE PRICE! This harness is leagues above all the other harnesses within its price range. You will be hard pressed to find a harness of this comfort, durability, and functionality for twice what you would pay for this! The padding is comfortable and supportive in all the right places and can help ease the discomfort of some seriously nasty whippers, trust me. The adjustment works great and I have no complaints about it. the gear loops are not the sturdiest things in the world but will easily hold a full rack no problem. The durability is exceptional, my mother is an avid climber and her primrose (female version of the momentum) has remained in excellent condition for almost 10 years of 2-3 times weekly gym climbing. The only thing this harness wouldn't excel at would be long multi-day/multi-pitch climbs. seriously for about 99.9% of gym climbers and the vast majority of outdoor climbers this harness is the best quality for the price and best overall harness for the job do yourself a favor and just pick one up already.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Beginner Harness for the Price I bought this so I wouldn't have to keep using rental harnesses at the gym which were incredibly uncomfortable and inconvenient if you wanted to hang a chalk bag or clip your belay device onto something without setting it on the ground. This harness is much lighter weight than the rentals and more comfortable, and the gear loops are a plus. Only downside is the limited sizing, it always feels like kind of a squeeze to get it on since I fall between the large and medium sizes at a 33. I went with medium though and it does fit, just needs a little breaking in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great All Around Harness Just got seriously into climbing about 5 months ago and purchased this harness soon thereafter. I have nothing but good things to say about this entry-level harness. It's way more comfortable than the ones you rent from you local gym. It's easy to put on and take off, and breaks in very well. I love the features like the side loops, as well as the back loop for your chalk bag. Super clutch. I would recommend this harness to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable I recently started lead climbing and the harness I had was a few years old(was starting to show signs of wear) I wanted a new harness that I could trust and that would provide the safety and confidence I needed to be able to challenge myself and push my limits. The momentum climbing harness provided me with just that. I don't have to worry about the durability and safety of my harness and am able to climb feeling protected and assured.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable, good price I've been climbing a couple times indoors and a couple times outdoors in this harness. My previous harness was a much more expensive Petzel harness. The BD Momentum has proven to be at least as comfortable. The gear loops are comfortably located and a good size. The leg loops are comfortable but took a little while to get the adjustment right. This harness is a very good value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for climbers of any skill level I picked up this harness for mostly indoor use and it has been amazing. With the amount of times I peel off the wall I've never once been uncomfortable wearing the Momentum. It did take a few tries to get it adjusted to the perfect fit, but now it slides on like a velvet glove and has verify solid support. You can't beat the price for the level of quality you'd expect from BD, especially for something so well constructed with clear longevity. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to grab a new harness for a good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent beginner harness As a new climber, I was looking for something comfortable and inexpensive. I only climb indoors, and have found this harness to be exactly what I was looking for. It takes a bit of adjustment to find your fit, but once you have it, the harness does what it is designed to do. Fits well, and I haven't had any issues with it. Highly recommended.
