Black Diamond Xenos Harness Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

This harness is great! I've had this the last few weeks and it is great for sport and trad. Will be using it in a couple months for ice, but i am sure it will perform flawlessly. It is incredibly comfortable and comes with an ice clipper! The clipper slots are positioned great, gear loops are perfect, and the adjustable buckles allowed me to move from my Petzl over to BD. I do wish the waist had double buckles, but my waist size has the belay loop centered anyway. Highly suggest this for any climber.
Not in the description, but 1 Ice Clipper IS included!

Have had this harness for about two months now. I climb at least three times a week and am more than happy. Picked it up directly from the black diamond outlet in SLC, UT, and was told it is the same cut as the BD Chaos, only difference is adjustable leg straps. Can't wait to use if for ice climbing this winter! Would recommend this harness to anyone looking for an amazing adjustable harness.

Yup...Its a harness. It packs fairly small, so that's nice. It does everything. ice, gym, crag, sport, alpine, but then again, so does most any other harness.

Neutral Reviews:

For an 'all round' harness, the four small gear loops on this are not really adequate for multipitch trad. I knew that there were only four, but I was hoping that they'd be a bit bigger. It should be fine for icefalls, but not ideal for trad mixed routes. Otherwise it's great, and really comfortable.
I think I'll be adding an extra loop between the back two ice clipper slots for my belay device, anchor build, prussiks etc.
