OK, I was iffy about shelling out the dough for this harness, but I was not disappointed. This thing is amazing. The Warp Strength tech on the leg loops and waist belt allow the harness to be super minimal, breathable, and extremely comfortable. But don't let the minimalism of the harness make you weary of it's safety or support capabilities, I am a beginner and fell on this thing a number of times; the conical leg loops really hold your weight nicely and if you get hot and sweaty when climbing like me, the breathable mesh is a great feature. ArcTeryx has done it once again and jumped ahead of the pack in new, innovative gear tech. Try this thing on in a store and you'll feel the difference immediately.

I was a bit skeptical on the support and comfort level when first seeing the design and minimalism of this harness; but my doubts were shattered once I understood how they were made and felt how they fit. The 'Warp Strength' design is unique and superior to other harness designs, essentially cradling your legs and evenly distributing force the same way a loungy hammock would. This thing is super light yet super strong. I barely felt like I had anything on and imagine a lengthy belay would prove more comfortable in this harness than most: especially when belaying on the 3rd pitch of a 5 pitch climb. If you plan on spending most of your spring/summer/fall on a rock or in a gym, get one, you won't be disappointed.
