This is a very comfortable harness and the gear loops are easy to access. A nice feature for beginners learning to clean and lead. I bought a small (I'm 5'3" and 113 lbs) but for some reason, the Speed Adjust buckles on both the waist and legs have to be tightened throughout the day. While this is a minor inconvenience for single-pitch sport climbing, I'm not to thrilled with the idea of having to tighten my harness in the middle of longer multi-pitch climbs. Don't know if I just have a defective harness or if it is a problem with the SA buckle. I'm going to have to replace this harness, which is disappointing after less than a year of use.
