- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I've spent one weekend trad climbing in this harness, so these are only my initial impressions. Overall quality is superb, which is what gives Mammut a great reputation, so there are no issues there. As for comfort, I liked the fact that the waist belt extends farther around my waist than my previous BD harness, in fact, the left and right side meet, so there is no part of my waist that is rubbed by the belt at any point. I do have two critiques though, the first dealing with sizing. I purchased the small in the Togir, and it's much smaller than I'm used to, which makes slipping the leg loops on a little more awkward than my previous BD harness. Secondly, as reputable as the Togir's gear loops have been touted, I am not sold on them yet. Because the loops hang directly on the harness, as oppose to the more traditional rigid design that sits away from the harness, I had some difficulty grabbing gear and clipping gear back into the gear loops. Again, overall I'm very satisfied with the quality and comfort of this harness, but as for the gear loops, I'll have to adjust my clipping technique I suppose.
Excellent harness with unique features
The Togir light is great all around harness. It is extremely comfortable while climbing, has a low profile for maneuverability, has a great color scheme (who doesn't like that), and the fixed leg loops are a great no hassle feature. One awesome, subtle and unique thing that I have found while using this harness on gear routes is that the gear loop design sort of "pushes" the gear closer to the front of the loop and this, I've found, allows you to access your cams easier while some other harnesses force you to reach back.
The one thing i will say is that for hanging belays it gets a little uncomfortable but it's not a big wall harness, and I assume it will loosen up over time.
Another great harness from Mammut!

i wear a large with the black diamond momentum sa harness. should i go for the same size for this harness?
Mammut's Ophir line of harnesses fitted a little big, but the previous version of this harness in size L fitted me fine. A size Medium Black Diamond harness fits me perfectly, This one here is only available up to size L though, considering that you are a L in a BD harness you would probably need an XL in this one. You could try the L and if it doesn't fit you can always return it; Backcountry has an awesome return policy!
UPDATE: A friend let me try this harness on recently in size Large and, unlike the Ophir, this fits me just about right :belay loop centered and gear loops symmetrical). Like I said, a Medium BD Momentum fits me perfectly, so you'd probably need this in XL if they are available in that size.

aside from the obvious, what is the difference between fixed leg loops and adjustable leg loops. do they make a real difference?
The biggest advantage is if you're going to be wearing a different amount of clothing under them. If you use the same harness with shorts in the summer and layered pants in the fall/winter, you may find that the layers make the leg loops too tight.
I agree with everything Angus said but I'll add that I get a better fit with adjustable leg loops more often than not because I have a small waist compared to my thigh girth (damn skiing!!!).
Perfect sport harness.
I've used BD, Petzl, and Arc'teryx harnesses for gym and sport climbing. I can't review this for big walls, but its great for outdoor sport and indoor gym climbing. The leg loops are super comfy (no buckles) and the rope and load-bearing portions are extremely well constructed. The entire harness's fit and finish is awesome and it looks great. If you want a great sport harness, this is it.
