        Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Xenos Climbing Harness:

        This is the best harness I have ever worn! I've had it for about a full year and I'm more than satisfied with it. It's incredibly light. Feels like no matter how much gear I have I'll always have a place for it with the extra slots. It doesn't matter if I'm belaying for hours or falling over and over again on a climb it's still incredibly comfortable. The only time you feel it there is if you climb shirtless and then you get a bit of an uncomfortable rub here and there, but there's nothing that can be done about that. Love this harness, it's worth every penny.

        • Mountaineering

        Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Xenos Climbing Harness:

        The tabs that hold the ice clippers are not well made and may fail. As this holds your ice screws that is very bad. My harness is apparently not the only one that had this issue. EMS was extremely responsive in helping me with this problem. If Black Diamond fixes this issue it will be a really good winter harness.
        I couldn't in good conscience recommend this harness until this problem is dealt with by the manufacture.

        Classic BD: Looks Over Function

        Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Xenos Climbing Harness:

        I am a very active winter climber (climb 5 days a week between guiding and recreational climbing. The Xenos harness is a classic example of Black Diamond's engineering. They make the prettiest, nicest looking products that don't necessarily function well. They leave the product testing to the consumer.The harness fits well and climbs well. The kinetic core design really works.What doesn't work: -the leg loop buckles (they slip over the day) -the buckles on the elastic keeper straps on the back of the leg loops don't stay tight either (I cut mine and tied knots in them)-the instantly fraying belay loop -the clipper slot recall and the gear loop that could rip out from that, jettisoning all of your gear-you need to use the Petzl Ice Clippers which have an extra flap to anchor the clipper. The BD Clippers fully flip around while climbing making it difficult at times to pull screws off. This stems from loose fabric where you slide the clippers into place.-lack of general durability in a $100+ harness
