Yeah the price is a little high, but it has many little perks.
I have the BD couloir harness which is perfect for mountaineering and ice climbing when wanting to go light. The big down side I find to it is the main buckle you use to tighten it. Since its so small and light, its almost impossible to loosen or take off without freezing your hands and fingers off. You need to take your gloves off and you are then fiddling with cold metal and bare skin. The Adjama has the nifty petzl DoubleBack buckles where you need only thread it once. Its easy to loosen and take off, you only need one finger to do it and it can be gloved!
Also the newer models have even better padding then my older one.
If your not sure you will be climbing a lot or getting into the sport seriously, its a risky investment because of the high price, I started off with a used and even still use the BD momentum AL for my sport and trad climbing. (Its risky buying used harnesses though and should check it out in person and know where to check the fail points on them before you buy them)
