I Have been using this harnes for about 2 years. The harness is very comfortable. The PVC butt protector is great. It is finally starting to show some wear. I think after this season I will be replacing it with a new PVC but protector. It has 2 large gear loops that have plenty of room for everything I need to carry canyoneering. The belay loop is set in a position so that you device does no twist. I love the easy adjustable buckles for taking your harness on and off easily. Also great if you are using a wetsuit and have to adjust your harness all the time.
