This is this first harness that I bought and I could not ask for more from it. It's lightweight and packs down pretty well. it has the easy to use buckle, because doubling back is a waste of time and a pain, especially in the winter. It has enough gear loops and for a cheap harness it is surprisingly comfortable. I've never come back from a long day of multipitch with bruises from this, which is something that I can't say is true of the other harnesses I've used. Frankly, I don't know why anyone would bother spending $50 dollars more on a harness that will do the same thing. The only thing it doesn't have is space for ice screw clips, but I don't have to worry about that. Also, this harness has stood up to a year and a half of moderate to heavy use with little more than some paint scraped off the buckle.
