Fantastic, reasonably priced harness.
- Easily adjusted.
- Can't buckle incorrectly
- None that I can find
I was able to spend the day climbing at an indoor gym today with four of my students (12 & 13year olds) and another instructor. Everyone used the Momentum SA harness.
For first time climbers, the harness was straightforward. It was easy to put on and adjust. I have used several BD Bod harnesses for the past 15 years or so. My latest version should have been retired last year, so when presented with the opportunity to try the SA, I jumped at the chance.
The harness is very easy to put on. The "Speed Buckle" at the waist is pre-threaded, meaning you can't un-do the belt portion of the harness, all you can do is tighten it. The leg loops have these sliders attached to elastic webbing that are very easy to tighten, and loosen a little when it's your turn to belay. Two gear loops are located on each side towards the rear.
The only negative I could find is in the haul loop. I had no problem hanging my chalk bag from it and accessing it with either hand. Two of my students, however, had a hard time reaching it and had to hang their chalk bags from one of the gear loops.
I am 5' 9" and weigh 145. The medium was close to being too large. When I buy one, I'll probably get a small.
All in all, I had a great day climbing thanks to a harness that seamed to disappear when I wasn't belaying or on the wall.
