User Review: Black Diamond Momentum AL
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $49.95
This is my first harness and it's great. I thought I'd have to spend a lot more to get something this nice. I don't expect to buy a new harness for a long time.
- Difficult to get waist really tight
- Not a lot of padding
I went to the store and tried on a few different harnesses and the Black Diamond Momentum AL was just as comfortable as the more expensive ones. It's a simple design but has a few nice features that make me glad I bought it.
The gear loops are bent out from your body which makes it easier to clip to one-handed and without looking.
The leg straps have elastic tensioners that tighten easily but still don't constrict your thighs.
The only bad thing about it is that it can be a pain to get the waist really tight. Once you have it tightened and doubled-backed though, it feels secure and doesn't loosen.
I've only used this harness on two days of climbing so far, but there is no sign of wear. It's a Black Diamond, so I expect it'll hold up well.
