Great starter harness
January 12, 2011

This was my first harness and it's been great. Super comfortable and easily adjustable. The speed adjust buckles are great. I can slip on my harness in be ready to go in mere seconds. I've taken a few falls with this harness but I've never not felt safe. After using the harness 3 times a week for about 4 months the belay loop is showing some wear but I assume that's normal. Since this is my first harness I can't be sure. I recommended this harness to two others and we all use it without fail. The extra $10 for the speed adjust is well worth it. It's pretty cheap to begin with so just get it. You won't be disappointed.

Great starting harness
June 08, 2011

Great harness for the price. Solid construction and very comfortable. I'm 6'3" 250 and this works well. I though this might pinch but work out very well. Should last a long time for the occasional climber.

Comfortable and Strong
October 14, 2010

I purchased this harness to use rock climbing and it is a big improvement over my alpine harness. I've used it several times at a local climbing park and the padding around the waist and thighs makes it very comfortable. It is also very strong and seems durable although I've only had it for a short while. I plan to take it to Seneca Rocks soon and I am sure it will perform most admirably!

Just a comfortable harness
February 09, 2012

Fits well, looks good, nothing more to say. Maybe not the lightest one, but still a good value for money. A couple of friends of mine use the same, and they feel quite satisfied

Pros: cheap

Solid, functional harness
November 17, 2010

I purchased this harness for Sport and Trad climbing. I was looking for something that was reasonably light, padded, and simple to adjust. The Momentum SA met my expectations and I am satisfied with the product. The only thing that keeps me from giving it a higher rating is that the leg loops tend to loosen during use. The elastic straps that hold up the leg loops also tend to loosen. These issues are bothersome, but do not impact the function or the safety of the harness.

Pros: Ease of use, Great value, Cons: leg loops loosen

Black Diamond Momentum SA Harness
September 14, 2011

I upgraded to the Black Diamond Momentum SA harness from an older Black Diamond harness and couldn't be happier. This harness is so easy to put on and adjust and the fit and comfort is much more superior to my older harness. My climbing buddies were very impressed and really liked the Camo design. The 4 hardware loops made carrying and accessing my equipment a breeze. The loop for my chalk bag was another added plus. I looked at a lot of other harnesses before choosing this one because size was my biggest consideration. I'm 5' 4" with a 29" waste and 19" legs. This harness was the only one I found that had the size range I needed. My old harness was nowhere as comfortable and can't compare to this harness for fit and ease of adjustment. I ordered a second one for my friend who likes to go repelling with me since it is so affordable. For price, fit, comfort and features, you can't go wrong with this Momentum SA harness.

Pros: easy to put on and adjust., comfortable, affordable, black diamond quality, features, Cons: none

snug fit without the wedgies
June 12, 2008

A good, comfortable, and snug fit. I generally do indoor climbing and belays with friends so I haven't tested this out on the field yet. However, there are numerous buckles that allow you to adjust your fit in a pretty quick manner. Just remember to double back on the loops. It's a long way down even if you're just indoors.
