Rated 4 out of 5Â by Paul A Super Reliable Choice for Winter
I own an older version of this warhorse. It's a super reliable choice for winter because you can easily put it on, or take it off, without taking boots or crampons off, and it doesn't collect snow or ice. It doesn't have a belay loop, so be ready for that. The lack of belay loop is part of what makes it so easy to put on/take off while wearing boots. And if you're planning to carry a heavy pack while wearing a harness, choose the BD Couloir Harness instead; the near-rigid gear loops on this harness will dig into your hips if you're wearing it under a heavy pack's hip belt.

This is a great, simple harness for beginners with very easy usage/wear instructions. I look forward to using these more for groups of climbers.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Chris 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 :-)

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Christie 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.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Qwerty 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

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Poz99 Love it!
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.
