    Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Big Gun Climbing Harness:

    I'm a climbing photographer and wanted a harness I would be comfortable in for hours. This seems like the perfect harness. In comparison to my old harness, this feels like I'm sitting on a pillow. I hardly notice the back support, but the legs I am a bit more aware of.

        Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Big Gun Climbing Harness:

        The Big Gun is hands down the most comfortable harness I have ever had. With lots of extras like padded leg loops, 5 inch wide waistbelt. Cons are maybe to many gear loops and it is a little on the heavy side.

          This harness has room for all of your gear needs. I can almost hang my full rack on this harness alone. It is great for long climbs to moderate climbs. The gear loops are plentyfull and keeps your rack in order. It is very comfy and has lots of padded supprot for falls or rapells. The dual tie in loops are great to. This thing should be a work of art not a harness.

              Happy so far with it. Even after couple of days of misuse (I was using a single belay loop for climbing and descending)...I'm still alive :)
              Do not spar 5 stars, ...Just for the luck :-P

                  Lots of gear loops and big comfy padding. I weaned myself off a Mammut harness without padded legs and this is just the trick.

                    This harness is very comfortable. I pretty much forgot I had it on when walking to and from climbs. The extra gear loops don't get in the way at all. Makes organizing gear easy. I am 6'3" and 225# and the XL fits perfect. Awesome harness for a big guy.

                      I do not climb big wall stuff yet but I've been getting into trad. This helps with organizing my gear on a harness. I've tried a sling but it didn't work out for me. This is working great and its crazy comfortable.

                      Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Big Gun Climbing Harness:

                      I really like how big and comfortable this harness is. I weight almost 200 lbs, and really like how well my weight is distributed. Perfect for long trad climbs, tons of gear loops and a hammer holster. I wish it had an elastic, velcro strip to assist when strapping on the waist belt, but other than that, no complaints. Mine was a little loose but I have room for extra clothes if its cold.
