Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've had this harness for about five months now and I'm having buyers remorse. To be fair I'll list the good things first.
One the dual buckles for centering the harness are good for centering the harness and provide a much larger size range. Two the gear loops are large enough to hold a good amount of gear.
Now what I don't like about it. I don't know how often the other reviews are wearing this harness to say it's comfortable but when I was using it for gym climbing only I noticed it was less comfortable than my cheaper harness. Now that I'm using it every day that it's above 34Â° and not raining it's downright painful. I had been using it while equipping routes at a new crag here in Missouri. I can only get maybe an hour in it before my legs are falling to sleep and the webbing is cutting into my legs and back. In order to complete my work I've had to go back to using my manky retired harness which was around the same price point but can be found for as little as $37 at the moment. Unfortunately I can't afford another harness purchase right now so I'll have to deal with it for another month until I can get another. If you need a harness for hanging belays or plan to use it to put up FAs this is not the harness for you. Frankly given the choices available for budget harnesses this just would be mine.
