No size guide - what waist size is a large? I am a 35-36 inch waist so will that work for me? This seems like a sweet initial set-up for a newbie...

You'll be much happier off with the Black Diamond Package http://www.backcountry.com/black-diamond-momentum-sa-package

It's $30 more, but the harness is far more comfortable with superior gear loops. You're going to spend a good amount of time in your harness, it's worth the investment. The Belay device from BD is comparable, but better in my opinion, smoother and maybe a little easier to use. The carabiner is far superior, and the chalk bag is a chalk bag.

In terms of size, I would go for a large in either case. Size L fits waists size 33-36 inches.
