Our most popular choice for all-around use, the Momentum Harness features four gear loops, trakFIT™-adjustable leg loops and an ultra-comfortable waistbelt. Learn More


For all-around climbers who know that time spent fiddling with leg loops and adjusting a pinching waistbelt is time wasted, the Black Diamond Momentum delivers a time-saving design for all styles of climbing. A pre-threaded Speed Adjust waistbelt buckle saves time and eliminates error when tying in, while Dual Core Construction™ puts an emphasis on comfort, even when you’re posted up at a hanging belay. TrakFIT leg-loops easily adjust for cool fall days at the crag or blazing summer days on long multi-pitches, and four pressure-molded gear loops and a haul loop make this our most popular all-rounder.

  • Pre-threaded Speed Adjust waistbelt buckle
  • Bullhorn-shaped waistbelt built using Dual Core Construction
  • Patent-pending trakFIT adjustment for easy leg loop customization
  • Adjustable rear elastic riser
  • Four pressure-molded gear loops
  • Haul loop

Dual Core Construction

Dual Core Construction™

Dual Core Construction combines a supportive but lightweight design with an ultra-comfortable load distribution. Dual Core Construction consists of an OpenAir waistbelt that uses two separate bands of webbing around the outside of the frame and a supportive insert in the center to allow for maximum breathability. Leg loops constructed from a single strand of full-width high-tensile nylon allow for total support and comfort when hanging in the harness.

Momentum Harness is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bang for Buck My first time in this harness was spent ascending and hanging on a rock face, for almost 3 hours. Time spent cleaning the rock face, that I was dreading sitting in a harness. I was pleasantly surprised to find it maintained comfort and ease of movement, despite it feeling like a minimalist harness. Minor compaints would include the end of the waist webbing is a pain to adjust when you have to max it out in order to get the waist over my hips. The waist band is not the most breathable, but is much better than the leg loops, which can get clammy, not unlike what I've come to expect from other sit harnesses.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fits small Harness arrived quickly when ordered online however the sizing guide is not accurate. The medium indicates a 30-33 fitment. I'm a 32-33 and the harness wasn't even close. Adjusted to its largest setting I could fit it on but couldn't tighten it enough to get the 3" recommended extra through the buckle. Also, the back of the harness was about 4" off centre in my back with the front belay loop centred. I'll have to return this harness and will order the Momentum DS to ensure I can centre the front and rear of the harness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice upgrades from previous model This is the third Momentum harness I have purchased. My son and and I are much larger than average compared to most climbers and the XXL size works well for us. Although it took me a while to build confidence in the new buckle that doesn't require backing up, I now am confident that it will hold and it is MUCH easier to tighten. I also found the leg loops a bit more comfortable than the previous model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Harness As a rock climbing guide I use this harness pretty much every single day and have loved it. It's a simple design and is holding up strongly to the abuse I've given it in Colorado and Red River Gorge! I love this harness.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice and comfy I got this as a backup harness because the price is so good. I've used it for the past month every day in place of my usual harness (love getting new gear and trying it out) and can say that it is definitely comfy and though it is not as slim, it is a great harness. I've spent 2 weeks in the gym with this and 2 weeks in southern utah climbing sandstone. It holds up just fine, seems to be durable (i'm hard on my gear). The only reason it gets 4 stars and not 5 is that if you walk around in this harness, you can definitely hear the synthetic material scratching against each other (like the sound when wearing ski pants or corduroys). overall, highly recommended. I like both colors to be honest, but I ended up going with the lava.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and Easy I used the Momentum harness in Zion NLP to do Behunin canyon. All 10 raps (many over 100 ft) were comfortable. I felt very secure with this harness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective and forgiving I accidentally got this one size too small, but it still has enough leeway to be of solid use. That's great because you can relax and not fret about having to switch to a fresh harness in case you gain/lose a few inches around your waist. It's super comfortable all around, and the leg loops do tighten and loosen quickly when you need them to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fullfills my needs plus The momentum harness is an excellent product for the price. I use my gear mostly for rappelling and rescue work. I do very little sport climbing, but use sport climbing harnesses instead of the much heavier and expensive rescue harnesses that are often overkill for my needs. I was able to add a pair of military suspenders without compromising the harness with any stitching or clips. You need that at my age and body shape :-). My first assignment was to clear a newly found training wall of vegetation so that the rescue basket could be lowered and raised. The belt went on with ease and and the gear loops were more than adequate to hold my ascending gear plus extra folding saw and clippers. The harness was comfortable as I tied off and manuevered laterally to reach the trees and shrubs that needed to be removed. I also purchased a nylon runner which functioned well as a backup autoblock to use along with my breakbar rack.
