Black Diamond Alpine Bod Harness

Item #: 39624

Our Price: $39.95


The Black Diamond Alpine Bod Harness was designed as a simple minimalist harness that is excellent for winter mountaineering or ice climbing. It is also great for any climber seeking a lightweight harness. The harness has gear-racking loops for racking gear. The "drop-seat" design allows the user to put the harness on easily, without removing skis or crampons. This design also allows the user to change clothes or go to the bathroom while remaining tied into the swami. Wide size ranges accommodate changes in clothing typical of winter use.

      Used this harness as a safety aid for painting my house--of all things. Very comfortable while on a 40 foot ladder. Easy diconnect when off of ladder, getting materials ie: caulking, changing brushes, getting more paint, rollers etc.

      Works great when you want something a little more than a tactical assault harness, but less than a heavily padded gym or big mountain harness.

          Comments about Black Diamond Alpine Bod Harness:

          I was looking for a basic, simple harness for general climbing and this filled the bill perfectly.
          Not a huge bunch of padding, so probably not great for "rock gymnasts", but for general mountaineering climbing this works perfectly...

              the previous reviewers don't understand...this is a harness designed for alpine climbing. we are talking about ice routes, mountaineering, glacier travel. No need for padding as one had layers of clothes. Also, it is suppose to be LIGHT WEIGHT!!! This is an excellent harness; it perfectly performs for the stated purpose. It was designed without padding and to be a light as possible. ok?

                    Very nice harness for young climbers. Super easy to put on correctly, easy to adjust size, fast on/off for group climbs that we do a lot of. Good for rappelling and climbing.

                        The x-large would accomodate any extra layering for winter use and has greater waist buckle adjustment.

                        There is no belay loop because it is a basic mountaineering bod harness.
