I've climbed in this harness for five years. Top, lead, triad, though I'm a cleaner, and it has never disappointed me.
It is extremely comfortable. I am 5'9" and about 200 pounds and has never pinch or pulled in an uncomfortable manner.
The harness has held up extremely well. I am not as easy on my gear as I should be, as it holds my life in its hands.
I would and will most definitely purchase again.

Great harness, I would not upgrade if you paid me. Low profile rear and front gear loop stay out of the way with my pack on.
I climb in the AZ heat, this one give me the ventilation I need. I am 120 lbs and 4’11 male. The small fits wonderful. The adjustable leg loops and waist make it a “no hassle” to get in and out of, when I go back Northeast and have to put on more layers for warmth.
All and all this is the bang for you buck.

Light, pretty comfortable, good for trad and sport (I’m 165 pound male). I like the gear loops: combination of smaller rigid plastic and floppy but huge loops for the back two. It would have been more comfortable for me if I could have combined the waist belt off a small and the leg loops off a medium. The stitching is very clever - minimizes material but supportive. I like the auto double back buckles.
Design of the back is much improved over the earlier version but still dumb. I don't understand their stubbornness over leaving out a haul loop. The strap to hold up the leg loops sometimes comes unhooked - but not during climbing (more when I take it off / fidget / wear a pack).
I tied a small double loop of cord through the funky fabric cutouts at the back and it works great to clip my chalk bag with a biner.
Overall, I’d recommend the Petzl Adjama.

Great harness. It is really comfortable, and I really like the quick tighten feature, rather than having to always double back. I wish it had two more loops for trad but having two of the different types of loops is nice. Mine has taken a couple falls and still feels good. Great harness!
