For the cost I can't fault this classic harness. I bought it for my 10 year old son who is quite slim and has to have it as small as it will go so I'd recommend trying it on first if it's for a young or very slim kid. The clip buckles on the leg straps make it very quick to get in and out of after first set up and the red belay loop makes it easy for my son to spot which way is the front. The waist buckle is a little awkward for him though and I think could have been designed better. All in all I'd recommend this harness though.

Bought this for my 8-year old daughter. She's pretty tall for her age, but skinny as a beanpole. Although the leg loops are a bit loose on her, she hangs in it securely and comfortably. I took her to the crag for the first time 2 weeks ago and she loved the experience. This will work great for a safety rope on more technical hikes as well.

My son is 8 years old and the harness fits him perfectly, and with room for growth. It's just like an adult harness, and it collapses well for compact storage. It doesn't cut in on him anywhere, and with one climing day in it, so far so good in terms of comfortability.

It does the job for sport climbing in the Gym. Will be better if Black Diamond increased the swami size range. Thus kids don't outgrow it that fast, before they have to progress the adults XS size.

Many childrens lives could be saved if parents will just put this harness on the kids especially in the mountains.
The peace of mind of knowing where your child is, is well worth the investment.

I've got 5, 8, and 10 year old kids and at first bought one then bought another one of these harness. Works great with the kids.

This harness is super adjustable and would work for most young kids to small for a regular harness. Great buy.

I bought this based on this description: "The A-Bod is sized larger than the Wiz Kid." Had to return it because seemed to be exact same size. I will probably get my boy a Small Momentum instead.
