How does the size on this harness run. I bought two for my daughters- 16 and 18 they are pretty petite 5'4 and about 110 pounds should I have ordered the xs instead of the small?

From my experience with the BD Primrose AL and SA harnesses you'll probably need an XSmall since it's meant to sit above your hips. Also, save them some frustration and get the quicker speed adjust buckles.

It's worth the extra $10 to get the speed adjust buckles to save their hands and fingers for climbing. I know my girlfriend hated doubling back her harness everytime and sometimes couldn't physically get the harness off after using up all her finger strength. Plus both the colors are cooler with the Primrose SA, which I'm sure factors in. Backcountry has an awesome return policy!
