GOOD ALPINE HARNESS

by climbhigh » Thu Dec 05, 2013 11:15 pm

I am looking at either the BD couloir or the DMM super couloir. Can anyone chime in on which one they think is better and why? Obviously one is more "super" than the other. Which one will be easier/faster to use and which one will smash my balls less in a fall? Also, which one will fit under a pack belt better?

Thank you

BD Couloir has an awful buckle design. Next to impossible to thread with gloves on.

Awesome thanks for the recommendations. I like the looks of the camp blitz. DMM looks hard to find and I did not really like the BD couloir when I tried it on today.

I picked one of these: http://www.backcountrygear.com/mens-harnesses/wild-country-eclipse-mens.html up last summer, VERY comfortable while hanging off top rope, setting rocks in the gym. Have taken a few minor falls, comfortable there also.

And, as the gear loops are sewn hanging down, they fit under the pack nicely, which was one of my requirements.

I have been looking at the camp blitz harness and I think it's the one. Thoughts anyone?
