Not happy with this harness.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

So I've had the harness for 3 months now and wear it for climbing at least 2-4 times per week. The sizing isn't true, as one reviewer stated. I wear size 31 pants and bought the medium. I have to extend the waist loop the entire diameter to get the harness on, and I still struggle a little doing so.

My biggest gripe are the leg loops. I don't know what it is, but they sit differently than my other harnesses. I've tried adjusting them, but I can't for the life of me get a comfortable fit. The loops really ride up on the inside of your leg, and it's easy to not have all the goods in the middle. That really sucks, as you probably know. I had the most uncomfortable hanging belays when I climbed yesterday. This is not a fall friendly harness, either. I guess you get that with the more minimalist ones.

Another reviewer discussed the issues with keeping lots of trad gear on a gear loop. I've noticed one fold, and it was pretty painful on my side where I carry my cams. I am going to return the harness because I'm that unhappy with it. I'd wear my adjama any day over this thing.
