You are not going to find a better deal on everything you need to get started rock climbing. Bought this kit after my first experience top-roping and now having more knowledge on equipment and prices this was definitely the right choice! Plus they through in a discount when I was at the store #Winning.
I recently started climbing again and bought this set during the climbing sale. It is very easy to put on and comfortable while climbing and belaying. The string on the chalk bag is really long so it is not easy to tie in/hook onto the harness, but the string is wide enough to pull over my head and shoulders so that it sits around my waist while I climb.
Love it! This set was the perfect way for me to get started on my climbing gear. I'm a beginning climber, and this package was affordable and totally worth the money. The harness is comfortable and cute (bonus!), and pretty self-explanatory (again...beginning climber). The fact that it comes with chalk bag, chalk, belay device, and locking beaner totally took the sticker shock out of climbing for me. I would recommend this to any woman looking to get serious about climbing!
"Fantastic harness Definitely recommended to friends"
I really like this harness! I have been rock climbing for about two months and the straps are very comfortable. I feel really great while climbing and the chalk bag and sock work beautifully. I think it's really great deal, buy one!
I love how comfortable the harness is much more comfortable than the harnesses I was renting from the gym! I love that there is one strap the tighten the waist it's better than the double straps in my opinion. I also like how there are no hanging straps when it's on that way nothing is in the way or gets tangled. The chalk bag is a little small but still serves its purpose. The screw caribener is ok but I much prefer the auto locking ones. Overall a great package and awesome harness.
For anyone looking to start out their protection and rock climbing gear this kit it GREAT. You save SO MUCH money by going this way.The harness is sleek and modern, yet comfortable.The locking carabiner and belay device are standard and non complicated. The chalk bag is standard and a good size. Black Diamond so it is built to last and it comes with 1 non-refillable chalk shot that would last a 5th grade teacher her entire teaching career.Again perfect for any starter or someone who has been borrowing/renting for a long time and is finally ready for their own first set.
"The harness is way comfortable! The rest was just added bonus."
I spent a good time in the climbing gym taking down and putting up new route and was slightly uncomfortable after 1 hour hang out on the wall! The chalk bag is literally just the chalk bag with a string attached, not the most useful, I bought a carabiner to clip it on. The belay device and screw lock carabiner was the great added bonus to save money in the packaged deal.
"Great Choice, good bargain for new climbers"
This package is a great way to get started if you're looking to get your own gear for the first time. The harness is good quality, not too bulky and padded, but still comfortable to wear, even on all day. The chalk that comes with the set is very nice and grippy, not the poor quality I was expecting from this starter package. All in all, great choice for anyone who just wants to get on the rock and climb and isn't looking for anything too flashy. (also, quite thankfully, the chalk bag my set came with was gray, not the ugly clashing orange in the picture. Because matching is of paramount concern in all climbing gear.)
After renting for a few weeks at my local gym, I finally buckled down and bought my own gear ... I wish I had done so after my first climb! The extra padding (at least compared to rental harnesses) is nice for belaying. The clasps for tightening the leg loops were a little weird at first, but I like the continuous band so I don't have to worry about double-backing. The screw-lock carabiner / ATC are also very smooth and easy-to-use. My only complaint is that the chalk bag only comes with a string, so I still need to buy a small carabiner or clip for myself so that I can attach/remove the bag more quickly (I like to share, and a lot of my friends still rent).
