Designed to be a mini version of our new Momentum Harness, the Wiz Kid has all of the comfort and durability of other Black Diamond harnesses. With fixed gear loops and a belay loop, the Wiz Kid's modern styling allows a child to climb alongside his or her idol and still look cool. Recommended for top-roping only.
A decked-out kids' harness built for up-and-coming rock monkeys, the Black Diamond Wiz Kid packs all the features of Black Diamond's adult harnesses in a smaller size. Just like the Momentum and Primrose harnesses, the Wiz Kid features Dual Core Construction, which uses two slim bands of high-tensile webbing on the outer edges of the waistbelt and a venting OpenAir foam insert in the center to offer breathable, lightweight comfort without pressure points. And for growing kids, the trakFIT leg loop adjustment system uses a simple slide adjuster to quickly and easily adjust the diameter of the leg loop and provide a wide range of fit.
Built specifically for young rock climbers, the Black Diamond Wiz Kid climbing harness provides the same level of comfort, ventilation and durability found in adult harnesses.

We looked at the few different kid's options that we could find. Although there aren't many, it seemed the most popular were this and the Petzl full body harness. We chose this for several reasons.
This harness is constructed just like the adult Momentum and Primrose harnesses that my wife and I use - padding, ventilation, trakFit leg loop adjustment, Speed Adjust waist buckle and so on. This little harness is well built.
As your kid grows, they may or may not want to move out of a full body harness to be like the "big kids". This harness will be great as our child gets older and becomes more advanced. She was 5 last year when we first put her in this harness and at the bottom of the weight limit (35lbs). She will get many more years of use out of this harness.
Our daughter climbs both outdoors and in the gym. She spent a week this summer at a climbing class. She has never complained of any discomfort from this harness and loves it.
I would definitely recommend this harness to a friend without hesitation.
My son decided he wanted to be a big boy and ditch his full body Petzl. We had him try on this and the Edelrid Finn. The Finn was great because the waist was adjustable, meaning his tie in point was always centered. It also had a sliding buckle, meaning putting it on and adjusting it was much faster. Unfortunately the color scheme and padding were the downfalls.
That's where the Wiz Kid comes in. It has enormous amounts of padding, making it comfortable to hang in for a long time. It also has a better color to it, two options (instead of unisex), and has 'cool' gear loops.
4/5 because it could be better with a sliding waist belt and sliding adjust buckle.
She's 52 lbs. if I feed her any more it will not fit much longer, one size fits " few" not all- best bet on kids girls harness's go XS womens you will get many years of growth out of it, Wiz kid Harness is made well and is adjustable to some extent, if your lil boulder baby loves Placsti'n and the rocks go womens small, other than that- outstanding product if you want to replace it next season. Kids grow fast when they eat plenty of vegetables!
Works exactly as advertised. Good quality and fit. Highly recommended. I can find no faults with this harness, the kids love it, and the price is right. Nice piece of beginner equipment, fits my nine year old perfectly and seems like she will have at least two or three more years with it.
My kids were getting so sick of the full body Petzl harness (although that was a very safe alternative for them when they were smaller). They were super excited and fired up about an adult looking and performance harness. They find it comfortable and I find it safe.
