This harness is by far the best harness I've ever owned. I got this when I worked at a summer camp belaying teens all day. I figured the padding would work out great for spending 10 hours in it and it exceeded my expectations on all levels. I'm a bit rougher on my gear than most too and the harness looks as new as the day I bought it. I would highly recommend this to anyone. The only thing I would tell people to note is that you should be sure on what size you need. I'm a pretty big guy and have a 42 inch waist and I really have to cinch down the straps. If I lose any wait I'll have to get the smaller version. Just be careful to check sizing first.
