Balancing durability and comfort, the Black Diamond Momentum SA climbing harness is an all-around harness perfect for much more than simply rock climbing. It also works great for multipitch trad routes and ascending glaciers.


  • Specifically, the Speed Adjust buckle of the Black Diamond Momentum SA harness is composed of lightweight aluminum which buckles at the waist. In order to ensure single-handed operation, the waist buckle is prethreaded.
  • Fitted along the leg-loop webbing is the trakFIT slide adjusters which are easy to modify and adjust during climbing, with little or no use to double back.
  • The patented Dual Core Construction comes in the form of a Bullhorn-shaped waist belt. For the climber, this adds breathability and distributes pressure with two distinct bands of webbing.
  • On top of this, the EVA foam padding and breathable mesh is soft and provides unprecedented comfort. In addition, the nylon elements are resistant to abrasion.
  • Strength is also a major concern, with four distinct pressure-molded gear loops that use nylon webbing to reinforce their durability. This harness also has ample racking space and elastic straps in the rear that can be adjusted and ultimately released if need be.

Final Considerations

Among the highest-rated on the market today, the rear haul loop has a rating of 12kN.

    Today, I used this harness for the first time. I only started climbing last year, but I’ve generally always rented harnesses when I went to the gym. This one is far more comfortable and lightweight. Worth every dollar I spent. I can completely recommend this Black Diamond harness, especially since I spent a decent amount of time falling on it.
