Black Diamond Wiz Kid
Price Paid: 40$ Can.
My little brother is just plain in love with it. It's comfortable, has enough gear loops for him to carry the draws he needs and all in all it's perfect for a child.
Only drawback is that as soon as he grows the single buckle system will place the gear loops in an awkward position. A double gear buckle front fastening system would solve much of that problem.
Price Paid: $36
Great kids harness. I bought two for my kids. We have a wall in the house and many kids have used the harnesses. The pre-threaded speed buckles are so easy even the kids can use them no problem.
Easy to use, and very adjustable for all sizes of kids. Solid belay loop, easy to tie in, good padding, and it just looks cool.
Small legs have a hard time cinching down because of the size of the leg loops and padding. I have had a hard time with getting a good fit on some of the girls.
I would recommend this harness to anyone. Definitely have your child try it on to make sure of fit around waist and legs.
