Petzl Corax

It's easy to fit it—two pull straps at the waist, a little tug, and voila the harness is locked in. Comfy too. I bought the Corax harness kit complete with a harness, belay device, carabiner, chalk bag and chalk.  Easy to put on and adjust to fit. Just step into the harness, pull each side of the waist belt, and voila a perfect fit with the harness perfectly centered. Great to get the added bonus of the belay, carabiner, chalk bag and chalk for just a bit more. I shopped online and got the kit… Full review

Petzl Corax

Very comfy harness, and only slightly more expensive than the BD Momentum. Works well for sitting on belay on a long multipitch as well as catching long lead falls without too much effort. All around a super capable harness. Ease of Use: Same basic design as pretty much all sport harnesses. Easy to reach harness gear loops. Features: Everything preforms well and leaves little to be desired. Construction & Durability: As with all Petzl products, quality is top notch! Has held up well after months… Full review

Black Diamond Couloir

The Black Diamond Couloir harness has all the features you need for a glacier travel or mountaineering, and none of the features you don't. I have used this harness for about 40 days for glacier travel and mountaineering and it has held up to use and abuse well. The harness is lightweight with no padding, which is ideal for glacier travel and mountaineering when you only would need it for a rescue scenario. You'll be wearing it almost the whole time so you want it to be lightweight, low profile… Full review

Singing Rock Digger Cave Harness

This harness is from Singing Rock, not CMI. It is similar to the CMI Cavemaster. I have been using this harness since it became available in the U.S. I also own the CMI Cavemaster. This one is my "Go-To" cave harness and is lower priced than the Cavemaster. Full review

Singing Rock Digger Cave Harness

The Digger Cave Harness is a low-cost, no frills caving harness that does the job it is suppose to do. While it does not carry the marketing power of Petzl, there are several features that make this harness worth considering. A Bit About Cave Harnesses The function of a cave harness necessitates a different design from a traditional climbing harness. While rock climbers are ascending a rock face, primarily relying on the harness to catch them in a fall, cavers are actually climbing the rope, being… Full review

Arc'teryx I340a Harness

A very lightweight harness that is useful for a broad range of activities. I've had a I 340a harness for two years now. It's been my go-to for a lot of different activities. I've used it for pretty much every alpine style climb I've been on. From days climbing ice at the crag around Canmore, to big multiday glacier ski mountaineering trips across the Wapta, mountaineering trips up neve gullies on Mt. Matier, to alpine rock on Bugaboo Spire this harness has seen it all. Its chief success is that… Full review

DMM Renegade 2

Not the lightest or the comfiest harness out there, but if you're looking for a good all rounder, this is possibly the best one on the market! DMM's Renegade 2 is an upgrade to the previous version in both aesthetics and functionality. They ditched the plastic gear loops for the better handling fabric ones, changed the color from a dismal grey to a fresh looking red trim and added a floating waist belt to allow a more adjustable fit, whatever your body shape. Harness don't really have a huge amount… Full review

Petzl Corax

Has great comfort easily adjusted with two tightening points. One of my favourite features is the two buckles, which make it a little heavier than some harnesses but allows for a greater adjustability and easier to get on and off without having extremely long tails. The soft gear loops at the back make carrying a pack easier, which makes it great for canyoning which at this point in time has been my primary use of the harness. Full review

Mammut Ophir Harness

Currently this is my favorite harness. This harness is very comfortable and it is very easy to put on and adjust. The gear loops are sturdy and easy to find and it includes a handy haul loop. This is my third harness and I have taken it from the gym to the red rocks of Moab and I love it. It does not have adjustable leg loops which are quite comfortable and make putting the harness on very quick and easy. The buckle does not need to be looped back through making the waist adjustment quicker and… Full review
