my bud's harness
My friend was needing a harness that would be comfy for all day wear on big walls... the Waldo does it SUPER! We all wear Metolius harnesses because they're the safest, most comfortable one's out there. If you have plans on aiding up big walls, a comfortable harness with multiple gear loops, large evenly weighted pads, and the peace of mind of this harness is a must. I would highly recommend the Metolius Waldo.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I haven't found a comfier climbing harness than this one. That said, long, awkward hanging belays can still suck, and if you're looking for a cozy seat, try a butt sling, bosun's chair, or portaledge. Better yet, climb faster.
This thing has so many loops that I don't know what to do with them. You won't run out of places to clip in gear. There are two belay loops, which I've never really understood. Girth hitching daisies to them adds unwanted length and seems less safe than using the tie-in points. Things get crowded enough down there without another loop to add to the mess. I think I'll cut one of them off.
The number of full-strength components that Metolius squeezes into their harnesses is impressive. The gear loops manage to stay clippably thin even with strong webbing running through them.
Adjustability is good. Leg loops don't slip down over time like I'm used to seeing on my BD harnesses.
Overall I'm pretty happy with the harness. I got it as a comfy harness for photography and hanging out on walls. It is heavy, though. I wouldn't recommend it for just any kind of climbing.
The small size indicates 29 - 31.5" in the waist. Most harnesses have a much larger range. What is the smallest this can cinch to? I am a 28" waist and am afraid the small may not fit. Thanks
Hey, Marcus -
The small Waldo is 29-31in (73.7-78.7cm), so I would suggest another harness for you. If you'd like to discuss options, you can give me a call or shoot me an email.
