Harness question

What non-padded harnesses are any of you using?? Looking for minimal padding as to not interfere with my backpack waist belt.

BD Alpine bod

I have an oldish Black Diamond Alpine Bod that is very minimal. Pretty cheap too!

im a big fan of the Black Diamond Bod. it has a mildly padded swami belt but its still prety minimal. I havnt used the alpine bod but it looks like it would be prety unobtrusive. if your doing any climbing as oposed to just glacier travel) I would go with the regular bod because of the gear loops. they are placed prety nicely so your rack isnt in your way.
happy climbing

I will make it a third for the Alpine Bod... I have used mine while climbing Rainier and it was great.

Well it looks like BD is the way to go. Thanks for the unanimous decision lol

From everything I read you really cant go wrong with a Black Diamond product. Being new to the vertical world, my safety is very important.
