Black Diamond Alpine Bod Harness
Excellent Alpine Harness
This is just what you want in a minimalist alpine mountaineering harness. Very light, stowable and effective. This isn't the harness you want to spend a lot of time actually hanging in, but that's the point with an alpine mountaineering harness.... if you're hanging in it alot, you're doing something wrong :-)

Smaller than I expected
Very comfortable harness. It's a little on the smaller side but it still fits me good. Best starter harness by far for the money. If you decide to purchase, you won't be disappointed!

Light, simple, cheap. Feels pretty much the same hanging on as the fancy ones. Can climb one pitch, multi pitch, walls, alpine, ice, and ski mountaineer with this one harness. Packs down to nothing and dries fast. I cut off the gear loops for squeezing into offwidths. Couldn't be a more practical rig.

Good for beginners and light
I would say this is good for a beginner it is light and compact so good if you don't have a lot of space to store it.
The only thing wrong with it is it is not the most comfy harness after a while in this it begins to dig in and hurt. Also the clips on it can come undone and are not very strong.
I would recommend it to my friends who are starting climbing as it it cheap and does the job well

I have just recently returned from an Alpine Trek. I could not have done it without this harness. This is the harness my friend told me to buy because it is the best, and he was right. The loops are in the right paces, and it is a perfect fit. It is a lifesaver too. My friend had one of these on and fell down a crevasse, but the harness and the rope stopped his fall. Awesome, a must buy for any climber, great price as well.
