      Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Momentum AL Climbing Harness:

      Great product and even better service. I needed a larger rig for my large legs (I weight lift a lot). I needed it fast for a rock climb in the Wichita Mtns. EMS had the product and got it to me with plenty of time to spare. This was my first time dealing with them and they were very knowledgable and professional. It won't be my last. Thanks!

        Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Momentum AL Climbing Harness:

        I've gone through quite a few climbing harnesses since 1973.

        This is the second BD Momentum AL harness I've owned. Pretty much wore out the first one. I like the design and comfortable fit, gear loops and full strength rear loop. Not sure about the new leg loop buckling system just yet. But adjustable leg loops are a must for me in any harness. IMO, adjust-ability is a lot more important than padding.

        Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Momentum AL Climbing Harness:

        My first seat harness was a Black Diamond brand and became a name I come to trust. As a tall ships sailor, having gear that is comfortable and reliable is paramount. Climbing up a 5 story mast on a 1893 schooner (Lettie G. Howard) on a very busy waterway (East River) where you could be swing and banging all about is a necessity. The simple design makes it easy getting on over bulky foul weather gear. The design does pretty well in keeping things compact when navigating through rigging. It does take a beating but some components do wear down and susceptible to chaffing. Overall, for the money, its a good solid product and like everything should be inspected before use.

        Low price perfectly reasonable harness

            Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Momentum AL Climbing Harness:

            I have used this harness for a while now, and found it to be perfectly acceptable. There is really quite little to say -- it works fine, and is reasonably comfortable. I do like how the gear loops lay very flat to your waist. I frequently find myself climbing through fibreglass filled walls and ventilation ducts, and I notice that the close in gear loops don't frequently get snagged (e.g., on nails or screws).

                Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Momentum AL Climbing Harness:

                I was looking for a solid harness at a reasonable price to go to a nearby rock gym several nights per week. One of the climbing instructors from my local EMS recommended this harness, commenting that it's the harness they use at the EMS Climbing School. That's all I needed to know; I went home and ordered it that afternoon. (It was off-season so the store only had limited quantity on hand, and no Medium sizes, which is what I needed.)

                I've used the harness at least a dozen times already. It's super comfortable. I've only used it indoors so far, but plan to do some outdoor climbing with it this year.

                No complaints whatsoever. Great harness, great price.

                Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Momentum AL Climbing Harness:

                This is my first harness and it is perfect for the light climbing that I use it for. It's well made and I don't have much to complain about. The straps that connect the waist belt to the leg straps are kind of hard to tighten but it's easy to work around. I really like it.
