Recent Sit Harness Reviews

Petzl Corax

rated 5 of 5 stars 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

Mammut Ophir 3 Slide

rated 3.5 of 5 stars For an entry level, inexpensive harness, the Ophir 3 Slide is the way to go. Four, large gear loops, adjustable leg loops, indicator technology in the hero loop, and comfortable padding give this harness great value at the price point. Full review

Petzl Corax

rated 4 of 5 stars 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

rated 4.5 of 5 stars 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

Edelrid Jay

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is the most comfortable budget harness I have used. It is great for all climbing uses, though not the most comfortable to fall on, can easily be sat in for hours without much discomfort. The Jay is a great harness that has stood up to the last four months of very heavy use. I have worked at a ropes course all day all week in it. It is very comfortable to wear and sit in for lengthy periods of time. However the haul loop off the back is quite small and is difficult to attach anything to it. Full review

Arc'teryx I340a Harness

rated 3.5 of 5 stars 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

rated 4.5 of 5 stars 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 Fractio

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a tough harness and it will last a long time. I have used this harness for about 2-3 years now for cave exploration. Before that it was owned by one of my friends. Other harnesses I've used get destroyed in about a year due to the harsh cave environment.   The harness sits fairly low, but offers more back support than the SuperAvanti. The other big difference is the metal attachment point for the D closure carabiner or maillion. This is a good feature for better wear.  I would not buy… Full review

Petzl Men's Sama

rated 5 of 5 stars Light and comfortable, what more could you ask for? Perfect for sport climbing at any level. No pesky double backing, breathable mesh and crazy lightweight!  Full review
