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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Don't be fooled This harness is definitely more sturdy, structured, and comfortable than one of BD's more sport climbing specific harnesses I had for a while. However, they emphasize that this is a trad climbing specific harness, one of the reasons being that is has a lot more racking space than other models with two large front gear loops. The pictures and description are not at all accurate. These larger front gear loops are much smaller than they appear in the picture. They are really not that much bigger than the regular sized gear loops. Everything you would bring on an average multi-pitch trad out barely fits on all the gear loops. I love Black Diamond and I still think they make the best hardware in the industry and are one of the best companies to purchase gear from. However, they still have work to do on making a harness that can handle the amount of gear you need for long trad climbs. I don't know why they only made the front gear loop larger. If both gear loops were larger it would make a world of difference.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The (almost) do it all, forever harness This harness is almost perfect. I would love to have one small gear loop in the far back to stash away a less used piece of gear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best All-Around Harness The Black Diamond Chaos harness is quite possibly one of the best all-around performance-based harnesses in the product line. There are harnesses that are cheaper, lighter, more comfortable, and have some better features, but the Chaos harness is simply the best combination of all of the aforementioned qualities. The Chaos is designed for Trad climbing, but I've found that it excels at every climbing discipline (sport, TR, etc.). The Chaos is extremely comfortable, due in part to the ergonomic hip design as well as the elastic leg loops; therefore, I have no problem wearing the harness around all day in the gym or crag. Others have also noted this, but the Chaos does not have ice clipper slots (as it is not intended for ice climbing) but the ice clippers come with an attachment that make them compatible with any harness. However, you can still wear it ice climbing so long as you are not leading on ice and you put the harness on before you don crampons. I wore it all day for three days in Ouray recently, and it was comfortable on top of several layers as well as under jackets, etc. Overall, this is a great harness, and it is well worth the extra $$$ for any serious climber who plans on being in their harness all day. Great product, BD.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Harness This is a great harness for trad lead climbing. It is comfortable, it secures to your waist and doesn't come loose while climbing with gear attached. My only gripe with this harness is the loop for the chalk bag is sewn to the bottom of the waist belt and I find going for chalk to be a bit of a reach. I bought a belt for my chalk bag to fix the problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This harness is awesome! I have no complaints about the use of this harness, as it is super comfortable and holds my double gear rack well. I recommend this harness to my friends and others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great harness I recently bought this harness. I took it to the Bugaboos and beyond. I wouldn't say it's anymore or less comfortable than any other harness. Definitely tightened up the design for durability and the larger gear loop in the front is AMAZING for big alpine and I'm sure will be greatly welcomed in the Creek.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features! This harness is great and I was worried about the legs not fitting correctly being that they are non-adjustable. The legs fit great and I enjoy them for all day climbing!! I do wish that since this harness is marketed to have bigger front gear loops that they were significantly larger. Compared to other black diamond harnesses that I own, I do not see or not a discernible difference between these front gear loops and the other ones I own. I hope blackdiamond adjusts this in future models!
