Rated 5 out of 5Â by Clarity123 Happy with the purchase
I've only used the harness once outdoors and once indoors so far but must say I'm happy with it and haven't found any flaw so far. I'm a relative beginner (have been bouldering for over a year , only recently getting into ropes) and this is my first harness. I was looking for a good fit, good value and reasonable quality. This one seems to be a good choice. It is comfortable and to be honest during the two days of wearing it for 4-5 hours I was hardly aware of it being around my waist. I should stress though that it is very important to make sure the harness fits your particular figure, always make sure by trying it on and if possible hanging in it at the store. I had tried at least 7 or 8 different harnesses before this one and only one was a good fit (expensive and terrible colour though). I'm a female and had a problem to find a good fitting female harness (of a nice colour too of course). This model is male but fits great! My more experienced climbing friends also said it looks very good and reasonable for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DJL93 Value for Money
I tried out a variety of harnesses in store, great advice from staff and a good facility to test the harness on a rope.
I'd noticed the Wild Country Blaze online - the price was in my budget and it looked great. When I went to see it in store I compared it with the others and found the blaze to be by far the most comfortable, wide padding and a great fit. The buckles adjusted easily and it was easy to put on and fit. I bought a medium, and I am a tall slim male. Having used this harness for 6 or so weeks now, I am confident I made the right choice as it seems more comfortable each time I use it.
Overall, great value for money, you couldn't find a more comfortable, better fitting harness for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Bren33 Great harness for a great price
After injuring my ankle bouldering I started top-roping about a month ago. This is my first harness, though I have used a number of different models before buying this one. I bought it on sale for 60.00 euro which is an absolute steal, and which was the cheapest I could find it online, though I don't think the usual asking price of 75.00 euro is too extreme.
So far I have only used the Blaze harness while indoors. It is a simple, lightweight design, with sturdy looking gear loops, although I am yet to test them out, besides a karabiner or two.
The adjustment on both the waist and legs is very well fitting and easily adjustable. I tried it in the shop against the Black Diamond Momentum SA and felt that the more classic design of the leg loops would be more durable than the SA's design. I could probably have gone for the small, although I do like my harnesses to be tight, and am very happy with the medium. I also wanted a harness that I could layer up with for as I get more into alpinism, which this harness definitely has the capability to do.
Aesthetically (although I personally wouldn't value this too highly) it is lovely, and I've been complimented on it more than once.
I've taken a few falls, and the harness has taken my weight well. I wouldn't say it was the most comfortable harness I have ever tried but was more comfortable than the majority.
I have no idea of the durability of this harness, as I have only had it a few weeks. Still I am hopeful that it will last me a long time.
Overall, I would say a great harness at a reasonable price, which I reckon I will be getting a lot of use out of.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by the_coder_dan Great, lightweight harness
Light, durable, and inexpensive. This harness is very comfortable, and one of only a few that doesn't dig into my larger rib-cage when taking a fall. Excellent for the price, used it for trad and sport, with plenty of rack space for gear.
Recommended to family and friends!
