Black Diamond Solution Guide Harness - Men's

The Solution Series consists of Black Diamond's sportier climbing harness, and the Men's Solution Guide Harness is slightly modified for trad crags like Indian Creek or even longer multi-pitch climbing like Red Rock. It's mostly the same as the original Solution, with the exception of the Super Fabric exterior that boasts advanced durability for chimneys, offwidths, and rubbing against the rock on hanging belays. Apart from that, and the fifth gear loop for items like gloves and cord, the Solution Guide still features the same Fusion Comfort Technology that uses two separate strands of webbing to balance comfort and lightness. The single waist buckle is easy to cinch on and off, the elasticized leg loops are easy to move in, and the detachable risers allow drop seat functionality.

  • Climbing harness built specifically for trad
  • Super Fabric provides durable abrasion resistance
  • Fusion Comfort Technology lessens weight without inhibiting comfort
  • Single waist buckle and elasticized leg loops for quick on-and-off
  • Four pressure-molded gear loops and fifth gear loop for extras
  • Item #BLD00Z6
  • So new for spring 19 the solution guide. Harness so what we did with this is we took the solution harness which is a great comfortable awesome harness, and we said let's make a super durable kind of. Designed for trad climbing and chimney and grinding and like just a super burly rig it's almost the same geometry not. Quite exactly it's a little wider through the waist for a little more support we kept the same gear loops fixed legs of course same belay loop we. Added a fifth gear loop in the back if you want to hang your gloves or knife or belay device or whatever you want to do back there it still has your zero can tag line to tag a line but the really cool feature on this guy is this fabric. That's used on the leg loops and on the waist and it's called super fabric which. Is not very exciting but that's what it's called and it's incredibly durable so the reason we picked it is for the. Guys that are lying back at indian creek and like grinding in the chimneys in the valley and stuff like that it's i don't want to say it's indestructible because you can break anything if you try hard enough but it's really super durable and it's some kind of laminated epoxy ceramic dots onto the fabric or. Something it's really cool we also have the women's women's comes in this color called coral which is a different on the legs there so this replaces our kaos. Harnesses kind of our big wall free. Roots sort of rigged at 99 bucks. It's a great harness that's literally gonna last you forever available in January 99 95 394 grams out. While you know engineering team army of. Folks over there when they were tasked with hey we need a new fabric that's really durable we have a guy here that. Burns through a harness a month like just grinding up the creek you know just lay it back and usually right here on the legs is what takes the biggest brunt of the wear, so we just tried a bunch of different fabrics and literally just gave it to him and said go, and then he would come back and you just go i mean you go that's no good and so these guys hunted. Down this company called super fabric, and they had this fabric for our purposes it ended up working out great and it's super durable and at 99. Bucks the kaos used to be 129 so a. Really great value for the super durable big long free root heather guy we're. Girl he's still along a sample yeah for. Real it's good yeah so it's pretty nice. 99 bucks.

Said latest and greatest an outdoor gear and i kind of always think that some of. The staples tent backpacks hiking boots. Yeah or making shoes yeah we're looking. At one of those today yeah we've looked at a lot of hiking boots in the past and you know a few months ago we were looking at our calendar come on boo it said let's try and take a look at some more shoes so you're going to see some more hiking shoe episodes coming up. Because we know a lot of people hiking backpack and shoes and don't wear boots, and so we said you know what let's look at some good shoes out there and the. Vast jux j u xt this is the men's just. Hiking shoe is not only good for hiking. But it's just good for kind of all-around stuff right very attractive good-looking shoe the awesome I've been. Wearing it to the gym going around town going to bars passing out in alleys as well. Hiking and backpacking okay use it for a good amount of that and i found it to. Work very well i did some you know minor. Rock climbing type stuff with it you know just kind of like scaling up racks and stuff and huge boulders i don't you call that bouldering maybe you do i don't know if that really they don't add that to my list of experience when you go to the bouldering alley yeah they're exactly right yeah so i found it in. Those situations that the traction the grip on these was suitable up to the. Task liked it i find the shoes to fit my. Feet well they've got a rather high arching them i have high arch so if. Your somebody with a little bit of a higher arch this is probably a good shoot for you if your somebody with flat duck feet you know probably not the. Shoe for you right because this thing features there arc tempo last we've. Talked about this before we've looked at a lot of bass shoes in the past then and i really the vast brand yeah we really like there. Boots the taco gtx the will such very. Nice boots yep yeah ben's been supporting them for years and years on my favorite food companies yeah, and they're there arc tempo last is the last. That they used in a lot of their shoes and boots which promotes quickness and agility over technical ground which is. Great for this shoe because i would i think the right classification for. This is kind of like a light hiker right agree for quick hikes on somewhat. Technical trails which is exactly what i used it for and found it to work. Perfectly for my uses what i like when. It's in warmer weather yeah more climates you know i don't want a huge boobed about halfway up my leg i want something that's more of a lower profile yeah and you know because in again to it. Also depends on you say like hiker rad you're also thinking about the amount of weight that york area you know if you're not caring you know everything including the kitchen sink there's no need to have some massive boot that you can use to like knock over a wall with right want some through you can almost i mean you could almost take these out to go jogging you know yeah same time yeah no doubt about guys like football in the park with them or something i know that's right good buddy yeah that's right so a couple other things about the last that our tempo last again really made for you know an athletic fit for. Shorter distance lightweight technical trails that kind of stuff a symmetrical. Curve which i said great for high arches okay and as we talked about in previous. Episodes places your foot in a more. Powerful position during total are. Usually when I'm having a lot more aggressive hiking on technical trails that's really a good feature to have. Tapered toe box gives you a lot of room which is you know which is absolutely. True my feet never think they're all cramped up in half do you see what I'm doing over your get spinning it around but quick do you see it's like it's getting every angle 10 of the shoe so. That everybody I'm just saying good doing my part / he really good really good yep so it's like i. Said got good traction on the bottom it. Features the off-the-grid outsole right. A special vast outsole and yeah durable. Grippy sticky that's what they say good stuff during p you played in the mid-foot protects from protrusions uneven terrain without adding. Unnecessary weight and with some of the. Terrain i was hiking on it i was dealing. With rach protrusions on the trail right and there's there was very little even. Ground to walk on it was constantly on rocks you know that feeling when you're walking on rocks and you're always like looking for a flat wrap the strap on and. Then sometimes just because you're moving fast on the trail you end up. Having to step on one that's just like jutting out of the ground like a freaking knife and it's true that. The construction of the shoe kind of. Softens the blow of those intruding well it seems like the soul the whole shoes like squishy in the sense that they have some rubber padding yeah hits it's. Nice you know instead of it being solid yeah just like jarring the pressure up three out of legs yeah so it's got really good flexibility as you can see which will go a long way towards you. No fast technical trails alright and. Some other stuff about it's got a. Suede and polyurethane coated leather upper right very nice attractive very. Nice looking shoes is it waterproof you probably know it's not it's not not no so there's no cortex or any of it owe you. Know what it says waterproof on the thing here yeah okay i don't know why i didn't i don't have it in my notes though because they had another there. Was a separate there was a just something or another that was discontinued at some point that was with. Gore-tex but obviously this says waterproof so i guess it is i didn't really test it for that purpose though interesting thing about that though is that I've never found my feet to be you. No getting sweaty i found these to be fairly breathable while i was using them. Was working up a good sweat you know a lot of times with water for boots sometimes people say that you know they find them to be not the most breathable. For obvious reasons and i didn't have that problem with these they worked very well so it's got a molded rubber toe cap. Here right so it's going to last longer time isn't banging up against them you know the shoes not going to fall apart at the toe cap dual-density ev a footbed. Molded ev a mid sole with tpu plate wow. There you go so lots of good stuff here. If you're looking for a nice light hiker. That maybe you want to bum around town into and very attractive-looking i would. Think this is one to look into right so go to your local store try it on see if. It makes sense for you this cost ninety dollars I'm drawn to the attractiveness of the ship i like it too it looks like it looks like a cross-trainer sneaker romo yeah and the color the it's. Like you know this set of gray's with. These green highlights yeah it's just. Really nice looking shoe it looks like something that when i see it on the stand i have to have it no it's very. Nice shoe for sure go to best come to check out more about it can't go wrong.
