Good fit does what it was designed for but I wish it had an adjustable strap that could be attached to the belay loop. then i could use it for ascending.

Perfect for my application

Purchased this for a lead rope solo set up. No complaints worked exactly as intended the wide straps make it comfortable to wear. Great adjustability for different sized people.
