MountaingirlBCLove this harness!

Voted 5/5

The Black Diamond Diva is an excellent, women specific harness. I bought it to replace my old cragging harness but it is so light and comfortable that I think it will be my new alpine harness as well.

At just 10 1/2oz, you'll be hard pressed to find a lighter harness. Even the stripped down, no padding, very utilitarian Alpine Bod is heavier. With the Diva you won't have to give up comfort however thanks to the padded waist and leg loops.

The leg loops are not adjustable but have elastic so they should work with a range of sizes.

My only complaint about this harness is that the leg loops don't drop when nature calls but to be honest I very rarely used that feature on my old harness anyway.

I found the gear loops to be a little small but they are textured which is nice as it keeps your gear from bunching up on the loops. (That being said, I think I will cut them off anyway as they would be quite uncomfortable with a pack on so I think I'm just going to McGyver up some webbing loops so I can use it for alpine climbing and glacier travel too.)

I've read in other reviews that it fits small but I didn't find that to be the case. Best to try it on before you buy it anyway though.

Time will tell if this ultralight construction can hold up but it is reasonably priced and it's probably a good idea to replace your harness fairly regularly anyway.

Two Thumbs up.... super comfy, functional harness!
