The Black Diamond Chaos Harness is a climbing harness for trad, cragging, and multi-pitch free climbs. The Chaos is durable, built to endure long routes and take on constant abuse. The Kinetic Core Construction gives the waistbelt it's bullhorn shape, spreading out weight evenly for all day comfort. The 3D breathable mesh on the inside of the belt and leg loops wicks moisture away and dries out quickly. The larger gear loops provide plenty of space for a full rack, with welded patches on high-abrasion areas for continued use. Secure the belt close with the forged speed adjust belt buckle and tackle the next project.

Product Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for what its made for - TRAD CLIMBING! First things first. If you are looking for one harness to do it all....Sport, Trad, Gym, ICE then look at the Xenos, Aspet or Lotus Harnesses. THE CHAOS HARNESS DOES NOT HAVE ANY ICE CLIPPER SLOTS! I only use my Chaos harness for trad climbing, specifically multi-pitch trad routes or really long sport routes. It is light, comfortable and holds lots of gear! I think my favorite thing about this harness are the elastic leg loops...THEY ARE AMAZING. No adjusting the leg loops...just put the harness on, tighten the waist belt and go! I love this harness! I wish the Xenos and Aspect harness had the elastic leg loop feature rather than the buckles!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best harness I've ever worn I was skeptical of the Chaos at first, especially with the non-adjustable leg loops. I have a weird frame, with a 31 waist and really long, skinny legs... (I ordered a Medium). The leg loops rode up a little high on my legs, which made me worry about the comfort and potential pinching when taking a whipper. When actually weighting the harness, it felt like a dream. So unbelievably comfortable, I could hang around forever. It is so comfortable and lightweight, that I numerous times forgot that it was even on. It felt great when taking a lead fall The gear loops did great at holding a full rack. Very very happy with this harness

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome have been using harnesses by that other company with the dead bird... You know which one I'm talking about.... Not anymore ... I ve had the chaos for a couple of weeks now and used it from cragging to alpine route in the squamish area. .. Bottom line is that won't go back to the bird... The chaos is much more comfortable, breathable and the gear loops can take a double rack like nothing... I'm quite impress with the quality of the product.. The new buckles are much better than before... I like everything about it... Word of caution, if you have big cyclist quads, measure them up first... Bd should produce a couple of stand alone leg loops in different size for the abnormale like big that needs a medium waist and large leg loop... Still the best harness I ve purchase so far

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light & Comfortable The Chaos harness is so light and comfortable you will forget you have it on. Rapping down four or five pitches on the first day the weight distribution is fantastic. I love the gear loops and the buckle that you can't get wrong.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great harness I've had this harness for 2 years and use it for everything but ice climbing and it's great! I'm all about comfort and this harness delivers for long hanging days. Tons of space to rack gear and super solid without being heavy. Yes there is lighter but at some point you sacrifice on the comfort which is important when doing hanging belays or you are carrying a lot of gear. You cannot put ice clippers on this harness so keep that in mind if it's a feature you require and want one to do it all. I'm 6'1 and 185lbs and like having my leg loops loose. This is my first harness with set leg loops and it is a bit snug for my liking but in no way restrictive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Undetectable Comfort Good design is function and beauty. The Chaos is an incredibly comfortable and functional harness. It slips on quickly and hanging in it for long periods of time isn't nearly as painful as it can be in other harnesses. The simply design of the waist belt makes it easy to rack gear, tie in and belay. Considering that mine is still relatively new, I haven't had any durability issues, but I really like the idea of the reinforced areas on the harness. The Chaos is on par with the rest of the BD line: dialed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Don't be fooled This harness is definitely more sturdy, structured, and comfortable than one of BD's more sport climbing specific harnesses I had for a while. However, they emphasize that this is a trad climbing specific harness, one of the reasons being that is has a lot more racking space than other models with two large front gear loops. The pictures and description are not at all accurate. These larger front gear loops are much smaller than they appear in the picture. They are really not that much bigger than the regular sized gear loops. Everything you would bring on an average multi-pitch trad out barely fits on all the gear loops. I love Black Diamond and I still think they make the best hardware in the industry and are one of the best companies to purchase gear from. However, they still have work to do on making a harness that can handle the amount of gear you need for long trad climbs. I don't know why they only made the front gear loop larger. If both gear loops were larger it would make a world of difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bouldering Harness Period! Guys...this harness is LEGIT. I’m not trying to brag or anything but I do A LOT of hard bouldering. High balls, Low Balls, all kinda balls...doesn’t matter...this harness is by far the most comfortable and versatile bouldering harness I have ever worn. This thing holds my chalk bag perfectly. It’s got a bunch of weird loops and stuff on it that don’t really make sense to me but if you wanted to you could hang like four or five chalk bags off thing easily- you would be able to rechalk your hands at every angle so you can keep that center of gravity on point. I usually just use the one chalk bag in the back and then a couple of chalks bags on each hip that are filled with skittles. Y’all need ya get this bouldering harness. It does not disappoint.
