The Black Diamond Alpine Bod Harness is a simple climbing harness geared towards ice and alpine climbing. The whole harness is constructed with nylon webbing, with quick-release leg loops and a traditional double-back buckle at the waist. The little guy weighs in at only 14 ounces and packs away easily when you're not on the wall. Four gear loops and a haul loop brings your gear along with you for the ride and the whole thing dries quickly in unsavory weather. Not to shabby on the wallet either.

FEATURES of the Black Diamond Alpine Bod All-Around Harness

  • Traditional buckle
  • Quick-release leg loops
  • 4 gear loops
  • 12 kN-rated haul loop
  • Entire harness constructed from quick-dry nylon webbing

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a more comfortable "alpine" harness This is a light weight alpine harness. None of them are comfortable! You are sacrifice all the padding for lighter weight. I formerly had Petzl tour harness. The Black Diamond straps are wider and MUCH more comfortable. I read some reviews saying there was no belay loop??? There clearly is a belay loop. You need to read the directions (on the inside of the harness) to see that it does have a belay loop, and just how it attaches. See pic. Again,weight/strapping has been cut down to reduce weight. This was not intended for hours of gym climbing, hence "alpine" harness. Because this harness is more strapping than padding, it also dries more quickly after use in alpine environments.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Durable but uncomfortable I've used this harness on a lot of alpine climbs over the years but I'm ready to transition to something more comfortable. I like that it is possible to put on and take off over large boots and crampons. However it is incredibly uncomfortable and even painful to repel in this harness. Since there isn't a belay loop the webbing pulls taut across my crotch even on low angle rapels. This is fairly obvious but I do enough rappelling on alpine climbs that I don't see a point to having a harness I never want to rapel in. I also find it difficult to open a carabiner attached to the front area when the harness is weighted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Harness for Children I have purchased several of these over the years for kids. Simple, very adjustable as they grow, wide straps for comfy hoists up top rope climbs, and they get gear loops so they can carry a biner or two like the big boys ! As far as the comment about no belay loop, I usually just clip the leg loop strap to the waist belt with a big locking biner and they are set to go all day.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great for indoor climbing, not the best for alpine climbing Not a great harness. It doesn't come with a belay loop so not ideal for use indoors where you are not tied in to belay. There are better more modern harnesses available at a similar price for use indoors and if you want an alpine harness then the BD couloir or DMM Super couloir are much better in my opinion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Super Reliable Choice for Winter I own an older version of this warhorse. It's a super reliable choice for winter because you can easily put it on, or take it off, without taking boots or crampons off, and it doesn't collect snow or ice. It doesn't have a belay loop, so be ready for that. The lack of belay loop is part of what makes it so easy to put on/take off while wearing boots. And if you're planning to carry a heavy pack while wearing a harness, choose the BD Couloir Harness instead; the near-rigid gear loops on this harness will dig into your hips if you're wearing it under a heavy pack's hip belt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Instruction This is a great, simple harness for beginners with very easy usage/wear instructions. I look forward to using these more for groups of climbers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Alpine Harness This is just what you want in a minimalist alpine mountaineering harness. Very light, stowable and effective. This isn't the harness you want to spend a lot of time actually hanging in, but that's the point with an alpine mountaineering harness.... if you're hanging in it alot, you're doing something wrong :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smaller than I expected Very comfortable harness. It's a little on the smaller side but it still fits me good. Best starter harness by far for the money. If you decide to purchase, you won't be disappointed!
