I'm a beginner and this package made it easy to get into the sport without a huge investment. I'm 6'2, 230 and everything has stood up to the stress a bigger guy like me has thrown at it. I've been gym climbing for roughly 4 months now and I haven't had any problems with the harness, belay device or chalk bag. The harness fits comfortably and I can wear it cinched down for 3-4 hours in the gym and not even notice it. The only complaint I have, which is very small, is that the chalk ball supplied does a poor job dispensing chalk. I would recommend this to anyone getting into the sport.
