Lightweight, extremely comfortable, versatile sit harness SPECTRUM is suitable for work positioning and everywhere where there is no risk of twisting during a fall. Due its lightness and convenience, this harness is used in both integrated rescues and sport climbing. Fully adjustable with a padded waist belt and leg loops.
Harness is equipped with light buckles that allow for quick and easy setup. Four gear loops (5 kg).
Bottom line, this is a fantastic harness, and the only thing that is going to make people think twice about buying it is the sticker price. At $124.95, it’s substantially more expensive then their other all-around offerings. I did really enjoy it on those long climbs though, so if you spend a lot of time off the deck, it may worth a little extra cash to kick down and rock it in style and comfort all day long. Plus it’ll give all the parties you pass something to talk about as you whiz by using your new speed climbing techniques!
Fast forward to 2009. Black Diamond has entered the realm of the super slick harness with three new offerings: the Chaos, Aura, and Ozone. The Chaos is their all-around harness, and has been redesigned using the revolutionary Kinetic Core Construction. Any thoughts on this versus the Arcteryx R320? How does it size beyond being comfortable? I have always had adjustable leg loops and am worried how well fixed leg loops will work. Were the legs loops properly proportioned to the waist? Are the gear loops big enough to have a triple set of cams?
