- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Well, is really light when I put it on, I just feel it.
Just verify the size because it's a little small that other hanesses. I'm "s" in almost all harnesses I wear, but in these one I feat better in "m".
Does what it says.

It's light, cozy, and durable. This is a great harness.
Light, extremely comfortable, attractive

I love this harness. I've never worn a harness with such a "seamless" feel as this one. Both the leg loops and the waistband have a nearly invisible feel against the body... this is true even as the harness ages, or as you've been sitting it it all day (as for multipitch climbing or bolting).
I know that many people have had to size up on this one--and that seems like a good solution. Oddly, I found this harness to fit better than others! FYI- I'm a lady, but have a pretty thick waist and relatively small legs... (i.e. I'm NOT hourglass-shaped). So... given my dimensions, my normal harness size worked just fine in this one! (Much better fit for me than most small-waisted, large leg-looped harnesses, to put it that way.)
Sleek and Secure

Great harness. Lightweight. Plenty of room for gear. Hardly feels like you're wearing a harness.
Comfy to the Max!

This is probably the best harness that I've ever put on! It's super comfy and great for all-day use. It's super light and great for trad climbing. And on top of that, the legs loops are easy to adjust. This is a great harness for anyone, whether he or she is experienced or just starting of, or for trad or sport.

Light and comfortable
This is my new favorite harness. Low bulk and light weight makes it easy to pack on longer approaches or for alpine objectives, yet the lack of traditional padding is never missed. The new design makes it very comfortable to wear and hang in. The slide block buckle makes sure you are always doubled back and the ice clipper sleeves are great when hitting the ice. The waist belt is a bit on the large side. I need a large for the legs, but have it tightened all the way down. Nice when wearing lots of clothes though. The gear loops seem to hold plenty of 'biners too.
How strong are the gear loops on this...
How strong are the gear loops on this harness? Are they webbing reinforced or just plastic? Are they confidence inspiring? Is there enough space on them to hold my rack for single pitch trad cragging? How would they compare in capacity to the BD Momentum?
I realize that two of the below reviews answer this question, but because they disagree, I was hoping for more input.
I haven't had an issue with the strength of the loops. I often carry a double rack of cams and they don't show any signs of strain after a year of use
super comfortable, super light
I finally decided to retire my old harness, and I am loving this harness. It is super light with flexible fabric, a tiny buckle, nice gear loops, and it packs flat and compact for travel (key element for any gear that is getting packed for a plane trip).
I am always small in Mammut harnesses, but have a rather strange sizing issue with this one. I found the elastic to be uncomfortably tight on the leg loops of this harness, in size small, while the waist fits well. I normally wear mens harnesses, because the leg loops tend to be too large for me in women's, so this is the first time I've had this issue.
With medium, the waist seems unnecessarily large, though that would probably be the right choice if I wanted to wear lots of clothes. I'm using this for summer sport climbing (single layer bottom with a sport top, maybe a long sleeved shirt on top), so I went with the size small and just cut the elastics off of the legloops, and now it fits great.
Consider sizing up one size in this, but if the legs are pinching, consider just snipping the elastic.
Light, Comfortable/ !Small for the Size!
I read the review below, and gotta disagree: I think the leg loops are comfortable, just as is the waste band. They don't collapse, break down, or pinch.
I really like the simple design. No extra buckles, straps, or crap to make it cluttered, heavy. Even though the leg loops don't have buckle adjustment, they DO have elastic to help them (gently) grab your thigh and not slop around.
This is my first harness with plastic gear loops- and I've gotta say, I quite like them! They're even slanted, so as to slide the gear toward the front where you need it.
I've mostly sport climbed in this harness, but have done some trad as well- and I racked everything on it, no problem. (I HATE using gear slings, so avoid them at all costs -I always rack gear right on the harness.)
***Warning***: I had to order up a size. I'm a non-curvy *lady* (5'9" 145 lbs)and needed a LARGE. Medium was definitely too small.
Type of climbing I do? Mostly trad and sport, near full-time. Was in the Red River Gorge with this March-May.

5th Harness I have ever used
**Four - five stars if you are a gym rat, TR a lot, or lead short sport routes.
comfortable waist even when hanging I don't really feel it, very lightwieght (I hardly know I am wearing it half the time)
**Two - three stars if you lead multipitch sport routes or hang a lot.
Gear loops are not convenient for lots of draws and definitley not for gear. If the leg loops ride up on me they they pinch my groin and hamstring and it is very uncomfortable. Even though the waist is ultra comfortable the pinch the leg loops can cause in my leg is enough for me to not recommend it to people. I am able to avoid this 90% of the time by making sure my leg loops stay low. But on long climbs or hanging belays, I will not use this harness.
**Type of climbing I do:
I am in the gym two to three times a week
I lead sport routes outside at least once a week.
My climbing partners hang draws often so I rarely mess with have to mess with the gear loops
