Familiarity: I've used it several times

I really wanted to like this harness. It looks cool, and was comfy to hang or fall in, but belaying was just terrible. I think it's because I have skinny legs. Every time I tried to belay with this and someone fell or weighted the rope the leg loops would ride up super high into my crotch and well you can guess the rest. The waist fit fine (I have a 31" waist and got a medium).I think I just have to use a harness with adjustable leg loops to be comfortable. For most people it's probably fine, but I highly suggest you try one on and simulate a standing belay situation and see if the harness rides up. I might try the Corax next since that has adjustable leg loops.

I've been using the Cinch for almost a year now and it is easily the best climbing purchase I've ever made. It's so easy to feed out rope to a leader that you will never want to go back to anything else. Lowering can be a little tricky, but after a little practice I've gotten pretty smooth with that too. I've used the Grigri 2 a good amount and I prefer the Cinch just because feeding rope is so much easier. Most people say the Grigri lowers smoother, but I don't think it's a huge difference. Both devices are great, so I recommend trying a friend's first to see what works better for you.
