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.
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.

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.

The iconic garment woman's dragon tail. Lt gore-tex approach shoes are ready for. Whatever you have in store they're versatile enough for hiking, but they perform really well when scrambling on. Rocks to approach your climb let's start. With the bottom the point of contact with the ground garma created a shoe that will work well. On technical rock mixed terrain approaches scrambling and even light. Hiking so the outsole is really meant to. Do it all it's made of tried-and-true vibram it's thinki enough for rock but. It's durable enough for long miles so it won't break down as quickly as some. Other types of softer sticky rubber that. You might find on approach shoes or even climbing shoes back here you've got a. Blocked heel strike area and the same. Blocking on the medial forefoot that's. For edging so all the while they give you a lug pattern in between that's perfect for hiking on those dirt trails. You're sure to encounter some rocks and. Some loose gravel so these lugs are. Going to keep you on the trail and make sure that you're sure-footed you can see three different colors in the mid sole. Grey yellow and red and that's not just. For look the grey part is a medium. Density so that gives cushioning and comfort and you can see it goes all the way around to the other side now the yellow part in the back is firmer so. That gives more stability where you need it in the heel and then the red part up front is densest and the most. Durable this is kind of what i call the. Climbing zone of the shoe and you're going to want densest material up. There mixed with what you have on the. Outsold the red dense part of the. Midsole really gives support you don't. Want your toes to flex too much and. That's going to give all the support you need for edging as you approach your climb on top of all of that you do have. A soft footbed it's removable. Just take it out here and show it. Definitely provides a lot of cushioning there's denser material here than. I've seen on some other removable. Footed and i think what they tried to do is give a nice soft place for your feet to land be kind of you have such a. Rigid mid sole on those long miles those. Heights this is going to keep you a little bit more comfortable the climbing. Style lacing is great for dialing in the. Tightness you prefer over different parts of your approach so leave them a little bit looser when you start hiking. But then when the hike starts to get more technical you can adjust those laces all the way down to the toes you. Can see the laces are kind of asymmetrical here and garmin actually built this entire shoe to mimic the. Natural asymmetry of your foot it's. Called they're anatomically directed design or abd this really cuts down on. Open space in the shoe that could lead to rubbing or blisters that mixed with. The lacing and this heel lock in the. Back will actually ensure a really good snug fit all day long also so wrap. Around so rand here in the front reduces the impact of kick rocks and roots and. Really protects those toes this is a gore-tex shoe as the name suggests so. It's going to keep out water so long as. That water doesn't come up over the top of the shoe the outsole in general is. Constructed of a few different materials but overall it's a really durable suede. That suede is going to last a long time. When you're encountering sharp rocks going to show some wear and tear and. That's why they're using such a durable material they've got overlays here but. Then they have some other kind of textile materials synthetic materials. Around the heel that you can really snug in and then again you have that rand because all the way around so that protects the suede even more and you've. Got the same material in the back overall the fit is pretty narrow these. Are approach shoes climbing style shoes. So they do want to give you a nice snug fit especially up here in the toe box. Again you can adjust the lacing for more. Comfort but if you're not used to approach style or climbing style shoes if you're just used to hiking shoes they're going to seem pretty narrow but. They're kind of meant to do that they're meant to be able to snug down and give you a tight fit all throughout the shoe with the features here you're getting a.
