This harness has been discontinued. For another great harness check out the Black Diamond Momentum AL(pictured below) which retails for $10 less than the Alpha and earns our Best Buy Award.

This harness surprised us for its comfort and light weight considering how little it costs. It is less than half the cost of other lightweight harnesses and still has the features you need in a comfortable package. It is probably the best high-performance harness for the money. We also think it just looks cool.
If you have a budget and are looking for a lightweight and low bulk free climbing harness, it is hard to go wrong with the Alpha. While the Arc'teryx R320 and Black Diamond Ozone scored higher in our tests, they are $75 and $65 dollars more expensive, respectively. The Alpha delivers a lot of value in such a nice package. Any gym or sport climber should add it to their short list if they are in the market for a light harness.
