True to its name, the Blizzard was bred for winter performance. This season, the Blizzard is sporting a new look and an updated design, all in the name of boundary-pushing ice and mixed climbing. With BDís unique bullhorn-shaped waistbelt, climbers can move with freedom and a full range of motion, while adjustable leg loops allow the Blizzard to be donned while wearing boots with crampons and adjusted to a variety of outerwear. Seven millimeters of closed-cell foam has been packed into both leg loops and waistbelt to ease the pain on hanging belays, and BD-quality construction ensures seasons of use.

Poorly placed ice-clipper slots; making existing gear loops all but unusable.Harness is under sized (lrg should be med,etc.)small buckles;fussy with gloves.Small belay loop,tye in and haul loop. Basically a warm weather "sporty" ice or trad harness.Mtns-NO!

Great Harness. Have done lots of ice climbing and sport with it and it has been great. Lots of room for gear, ice screws, caribiners, ect. The first harnes I have owned and I will look into one very similar when the time comes for me to get a new one.

Well, I've had this harness for over a year now, it has never failed me in any way, the padding is great, getting it on and off is easy, it has an equipment clip (always useful), i can sit in my harness for ages without the straps digging in, it feels safe , it looks great, i have used it for most types of climbing and it can be used for the lot, this was my first harness and i have never needed to even consider replacing it for any reason.

This harness also earns a four from me for the position of the gear loops. However, the gear loops are too far back. Means reaching for gear or draws is a little harder. Since I climb ice 5 months a year, having the ice clipper slots makes ip for that. Overall this is a kick ass harness.

I want TRADitional gear loops, and not the moulded ones, so I'm happy with that aspect of the harness. The padding is super duper nice, and makes hanging belays almost bearable. Straps adjust nicely, and the extra big waist strap will mean getting over down jackets, etc, will be easy.

pros: Nice padding, traditional gear loops, slots for clippers, big waist strap, 15kn haul loop, colour.

cons: gear loops set far back.

This harness is awesome wether you are spending hours hanging and setting in the gym, or on a trip to RRG it out performs anything else I have worn. Also, the ice clippers are nice for racking wires.
