Fusion Comfort Construction

Fusion Comfort Construction™

Intent on building a harness that would move with the body it protects, we designed a triple-weave webbing on the interior of the harness’s waistbelt that provides movement-focused technology while maintaining superior breathability, durability and strength. Also featured on the harness’s leg loops, this technology offers excellent load sharing, relieving pressure from sensitive points of contact.

 
Solution - Men's is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Comfy, Sizing Seems Different Positives: Seems lighter than my Flight or Ozone and much more comfortable than either of those. I've used it hanging in belays and also dangling while rigging new routes, very pleased with the wider waist belt and leg loops. Negative:The sizing seems a bit different compared to the Flight or Ozone. I am a medium in those harnesses but the medium in the Solution seemed a bit snug in the medium. I tried on a Large and while the waist is great now the leg loops are a bit big. I guess I need the elusive Extra Medium size to get the perfect fit. The comfort aspect is worth it not being the perfect fit, plus the price is great for this nice of a harness.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sport harness--silly gear loop I'm really happy with my Solution. It's surprisingly comfy to hang in, and was clearly built to last. My only complaint is that the gear loop in the back resembles a belt loop on jeans--only thinner. This makes for difficult clipping of biners--especially those that aren't snag-free. I'll just sew a loop of webbing onto mine and go on with my life. I bought a medium and found that the leg loops were a bit snug initially, but they've broken-in nicely. I don't think I have particularly big thighs, so cyclists and alpine touring types may want to size this before purchasing. If you're a sport climber from head to toe, this will probably be an ideal harness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Black Diamond harness yet. I've owned the Xenos and the Ozone and the Solution blows them away. I reminds me of the dead bird harnesses without the inflated pricing. I've used it for sport and trad with no complaints. Once you have it on you forget it's there. I've got a 31" waist and (relatively) big thighs and the fit is great. In the past I've always been between a small and a medium size due to the leg loops. BD should have made this harness years ago!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better Back Loop Please I have been using this harness for a season now. It fit perfectly to the sizing chart. The good: - waist is really comfy day in and day out. New fabric on the inside chafes a lot less than my previous harnesses. - semi rigid gear loops make for a really easy clipping and clipping. The bad: - The back loop is similar to a very thin belt loop with a 0N rating. It's incredibly hard to clip any gear into and this is easily one of the most useful loops for a personal anchor or Purcell. I would really like to see a looser loop that is easy to clip gear onto. - Leg loop material is a little too thin and tends to cut in if you're hanging for any extended periods.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from BD missed the boat on sizing This would be an otherwise good harness except for the size. As others have indicated, BD completely missed the boat on the sizing (and size grading) of this harness. I'm a size medium in every other harness BD makes, but for whatever reason the waist is too small in size medium of the Solution, and the leg loops are far, far too tight for the size. Thinking that for some reason I was between sizes, I tried size large -- and while the waist now fits, the legs loops are way too big and sloppy. As an added minus, the gear loops are quite small. I'm not sure why this particular harness is inconsistent in its sizing compared to other BD harnesses, but given that others have mentioned it, I don't think it's because "harnesses are intended for different uses, and that affects their size," as a BD phone rep told me. I think BD just missed the boat in QA or in the design of the size of this harness -- plain and simple.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from comfey harness, annoying gear loops This is overall a pretty good harness, it is comfortable, lightweight, the color is fun, the only problem is the terrible gear loops. Obviously this is a sport climbing harness, so I'm not expecting it to have huge gear loops, but even so, the loops feel quite small even for sport climbing. The big issue with them is that they are just hard to get gear on and off of. Because the gear loops hang down below the waist belt of the harness and because your body naturally gets wider below your waist, the gear loops end up being very close to your body making them hard to use. The loops do flare outward a bit to try and help with this, but it just isn't enough. Unfortunately, gear loops are an area where most harnesses can improve (not just BD). I guess I am still looking for the perfect harness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect They did it! All the BD harnesses I have owned and tried over the years, have come into the Solution and it has been solved. Lightweight, durable, organized and super comfortable to make a harness perform perfectly. So comfortable I forget it's still on after a long multi-pitch day~perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great value This is a great harness...esp at that price. I find it similar to my old non-adjustable Arcteryx. Very comfy and light. Haven't tried a hanging belay in it yet but hangdogging and belaying people that are hangdogging was fairly comfy. The sizing did seem a bit off on the waist to leg loop ratio...I found the Medium to be fairly snug for my 33" waist and the leg loops could have been a bit tighter (but I have fairly skinny thighs) I love the blue color but I wish they had made the belay loop a bright, contrasting color like red.
