Black Diamond Bod Reviews:


Outstanding Harness !

Have climbed 20+ years & worn many a harness. Always have had a disconcerting problem with them sliding down my lack of hips and rear. Paid almost twice this for a fancy new style harness with the dangling leg loops--worst slider yet. Was looking for the support of those good old school leg loops that wrap diagonal around the thigh. Found this and it is absolutely the best fitting, most comfortable hanging harness I've ever worn. Very easy to put on and adjust, better freedom of movement--should be great for the ice climbing suit. Innovative double buckle belt design allows you to get a tight waist cinch before doubling over. Thanks again Chouinard Black Diamond for all the great climbing gear through the years. Please don't stop making this harness design.

Cavers it is simple,removes quickly.

I am a climber and a caver and the Bod Harnice is a simple, confortable harnice for both. It is easy to get on and confortable to leave on. If you get to a tight crawl, it comes of quickly and then onec you get to the next repell it goes on quickly. It is lighe and has plenty of gear loops. Each member of my family that climbs or caves has a BOD.

Most comfortable and functional

BD Bod is most comforable and each is to put on and off. I've been searching and tried many differnt brands and types and finally settled on Bod, and I'm most pleased with the quality built, comfort, ease of use, and design.
I highly recommend this product for all kind of climbing use.

Love this harness!

had one of the fancey leg loop hanging straps type harness. What a pain putting that thing on! this harness clips on and clips off. The only thing I get a bit nervous about is one of the leg clips coming undone....but then again I'm a nervous nelly! Great harness.

I have been very happy with this harness

I use this for all alpine climbing, its simple, light, and comfortable; I hung in a crevasse for an hour plus for rescue training, it didn't bother me a bit.

The best for the weekend climber

Black Diamond is the leader and the Bod is the Gold standard for the majority of climbing scenerios. A Very comfortable waist and sturdy clips make this a GREAT value.

Very comfy harness even in hanging belay

I tried a new fangled harness with padded leg loops, designed for women,,,blah,blah,blah. I hated it, now I'm back to the Bod.

very comfortable and easy to use

Used this harness for ice climbing and found it very comfortable, though a bit binding during rappelling.
