Owen's Bio

Just getting back into climbing after a long hiatus. I climb indoors and out with the Vancouver Rock Climbing Group, and camp/hike anywhere and everywhere in BC.

I purchased this harness in Men's Large and found that the waist belt and leg loops were not true to the sizing chart; both were 2" smaller than advertised.

In the end, I went with the Arc'teryx 350a All-Around harness instead which fit closer to the sizing chart, but also has adjustable leg loops. The R320 is admittedly lighter than the 350a, and seems very comfortable. In particular, I can see the benefit of removing the buckles from the leg loops to save on weight, instead relying on heavy-duty elastic to make the loops dynamic in their sizing.

So they're really comfortable, which is the important part, but they're also pretty strange. When people find out what they're secret is, they always look at me strangely.

Beware the church-key. It stripped the socket on one of the caps as I didn't insert it far enough before turning. Metal on plastic does not mix well.
