      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

BD Coulior Harness: review

Recommended Posts

Purcahsed this last weekend for ice and alpine. Figuered since I dont fall on ice might as well shave the balls and go light. So I did and it wasnt too bad.

 

Climbed maybe 15 pitches in it this last week in cody. I definetly liked the leg loops and how easy it is to take a crap or just take off with leaving the crampons on. The spots for the ice clippers could be better. They move around a bit. The tie in buckle for the harness is a pain there are two buckels but I didnt have any problems them freezing or anything. I was worried that this harness would cut my spleen in half when rappeling but actually wasnt uncomfortable. Wouldn't want to climb the captian in it though. My 2 cents. for $50 I would recomend. light and functional but wouldnt use it for anything where i think i am going to fall or have to hang in it for any type of extended time period.

I got one this spring and used it mostly for ski mountaineering. It's comfortable to walk in; you almost forget it's there. I liked it enough that I started to use it on easy alpine rock routes too. In my mind, this is an Alpine Bod killer--half the weight, half the size and you get a belay loop. Good harness.
